2) Look to Christ not to the law!

Acts 15:10-11 Now, therefore, why are you putting God to the test by placing a yoke on the neck of the disciples that neither our fathers nor we have been able to bear? But we believe that we will be saved through the grace of the Lord Jesus, just as they will.”

The yoke refers to the Old Law Covenant written on tablets of stone. New covenant believers should look to Christ and grace rather than the ministry of death! Christians should not allow this yoke to be placed upon their necks.

Focus on Christ #2

"Grace". Hmmm. How many Christians have peace and joy in believing? If not, why not?!?!

Good point. I think because they look to their deeds of sanctification for peace and joy rather than looking to Christ, the Holy Spirit, grace, and faith! Peace and joy are fruits of the Spirit that are given by the Holy Spirit. They do not come from self will.
