My determined purpose is that I may know Yahshua, that I may become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly.
Go in through the narrow gate, because the gate is wide and the road is spacious that leads to destruction, and many people are entering by it. (Matthew 7:13)
Helpmeet to my husband of 12 years. Mother and teacher to my 3 boys. Seeking the heart of YHVH diligently. Walking with Yeshua joyously. Taking the narrow path.
In other words, one of the functions of the law is to lead us to Messiah in order to be liberated from sin. Our disobedience to the law drives us to Messiah and to freedom and liberty from sin through him. We were once imprisoned on death row because of our transgressions against the law. But now, the law has led us to Messiah and liberty. Once we are free from sin, Messiah then drives us back to obedience to the law through faith. We become doers of the word, or as Paul says, “doers of the law”, and not hearers only.
