Jesus Satisfied the Ten Commandments

Grace means ‘undeserved favor and acceptance.’ Galatians 5:4 says “you who are trying to be justified by law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen from grace.” Paul was writing to people who had accepted Jesus as the gift of undeserved favor and acceptance from God. But they went back to trying to live by the ten commandments.

Nobody can live by the 10 commandments. That’s why God gave them: to show that we can’t do it. We need Jesus to be acceptable to God. Many people are saved by grace, then try to live by the ten commandments to satisfy God. You can’t do it! Jesus, however, did do it. He met all the requirements of the ten commandments so you don’t have to.
