“I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain” (Galatians 2:21 NKJV). Jesus, “by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone” (Hebrews 2:9 NKJV). God’s grace is offered to the world through the cross of Jesus Christ. Noah had “found grace in the eyes of the LORD” (Genesis 6:8 NKJV). The LORD told Moses, “you have found grace in My sight, and I know you by name” (Exodus 33:17 NKJV).
However, “the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ” (John 1:17 NKJV). The Gospel of Christ teaches “that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ” (Galatians 2:16 NKJV). Keeping the 10 commandments, Sabbath day, Seder, musical instruments, incense, or any of Moses’ Law, means “Christ died in vain.”
