392. Freed From the Ministry of Death

The ministry of death may sound like an oxymoron, after all, isn't ministry supposed to be about life? Yet Paul used this phrase to describe something that the Jewish people were bound to be under. Was it sin? Animal sacrifices? God's judgment? It may surprise some to find out the "ministry of death" that Paul was referring to is what we know as the 10 commandments. The law of Moses could only produce death. There was no law or commandment that could make us right with God regardless of how hard one tried to keep it. The good news is we have died to the law and are freed from it because of Jesus Christ. We just happen to like good news.

  1. Thankyou for this website, it has helped me more than you know!

  2. I don't comment as often but I do want to encourage you guys that I am still listening. I love this podcast about the ministry of death, it is so true and it sets people free from believing their efforts will overcome sin;instead of resting in the finished work of Christ.

    Love you guys, keep spreading the news.
