Living in Grace & Truth

 For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. (John 1:17 ESV)
" If I am full of grace, there is no excuse for legalism in my life (Matthew 23:4, 11:28-30).

If I am full of truth, there is no excuse for unrestraint (licentiousness) either (Matthew 5:17-20, John 8:11).

The only reason to live legalistically or licentiously is unbelief in the adequacy of the indwelling Lord Jesus Christ who freely supplies grace and truth for my every need.  Or an unwillingness to let him be himself - full of grace and truth - in and through me."
