12) Christians are not under Old Covenant law

Galatians 5:18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

New Covenant believers are led by the Spirit and their sanctification is powered by the Holy Spirit. They are NOT under the law for justification or sanctification. Under Christ, the new lawgiver, all of the principles for Christian obedience and discipleship are stated in the New Testament. Several of the ten commandments have been enhanced and made stronger by Jesus.

Focus on Christ #12

Christ met the demands of the law and Christians are in Christ by faith. Christians have thus fulfilled the laws demands by their union with Christ. Therefore, Christians are not under the law of Moses due to the person and work of Jesus Christ.
