The Law and the Gospel / Lesson 10, December 1-7

All resources you need for the Sabbath School Bible Studies: free access to download all departments Lessons Editions, Videos, Podcasts, App and additional comments.



Memory Text:   “Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. He who says, ‘I know Him,’ and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him” (1 John 2:3-4, NKJV).

Key Thought: God’s entire moral law is what reveals our sin and, thus, our need for a Savior. The law and the gospel are, therefore, inseparable.

The law and character of God are central to the great controversy and, when the controversy is finally over, God’s law and character will be vindicated before the onlooking universe. Until then, the controversy rages on, and as human beings we wind up on one side or another, and the side we choose decides which master we follow. In the words of Bob Dylan, You’re gonna have to serve somebody,/ Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord/But you’re gonna have to serve somebody. Those who choose to serve the Lord do so out of love and appreciation for what has been done for them through Christ. Having been buried with Christ by baptism into His death, they know that the body of sin was destroyed so that they no longer need to serve their former master, sin, but now have been given the freedom to obey God and His law.

In this week’s lesson we will look at the nature of the law, its purpose, and its relation to the good news of God’s saving grace. For, rightly understood, God’s law helps to reveal just what God’s grace has offered us in Christ
