Spirit and Law

The issue is not a conflict between Law and Spirit, but between flesh and spirit. Do we seek to please God by our own fleshly efforts to keep the Law, or do we depend on resurrection power of His Spirit within? We are to set our minds on depending on the Spirit. By His power, we can please God.

With this understanding, the Messianic Jew has no ambivalence in approaching the whole Bible as "profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction and instruction in righteousness" (see 2 Tim. 3:16-17). Truly, he can say with the psalmist, "O how I love thy law" (Ps. 119:97, KJV). Yet, even more does he love the demonstration of the meaning of the Law in Spirit and in truth in Yeshua ha Mashiach.
