How Can I See the Gospel Through the Law?

3 Sep

Recently, I came across this video interview and thought it would be helpful to share with regards to how we are to read God’s Word.

Darrin Patrick, pastor of The Journey Church in St. Louis asks Dr. Bryan Chappell, president of Covenant Theological Seminary, the question: “How can I see the Gospel through the Law?”  In other words, “How do I see Jesus being displayed in a commandment like ‘Do not steal’?  Is this commandment given to show me primarily what I must do – or to show me primarily what Jesus has done?”

Though this question is asked in regards to how preachers are to preach God’s Word, it is absolutely helpful in how we approach God’s Word on a daily basis in our devotionals.
