What’s Your Take On This

I’d love your thoughts on Paul’s words in  1 Timothy 6:13-16. He says,

I charge you in the presence of God, who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, …that you keep the commandment without stain or reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, which He will bring about at the proper time…

What are your thoughts on his charge to Timothy? The reason I ask is because some people say Christians are free of the Law and commandments because we live in a period of grace. I agree we live by God’s grace. But, what about the charge to “keep the commandment without stain or reproach”? Could it be that although we’re saved by grace, God expects us to act like His children? Paul’s next words reflect His amazement, honor, and worship of the resurrected Jesus Christ.  “He who is the blessed and only SOVEREIGN, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone possesses immortality and dwells in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see. To Him be honor and eternal dominion!” Paul’s words and Paul’s life bring praise to Jesus.  What do you think of his charge to us?

Lord Jesus Christ, the blessed and only SOVEREIGN, we worship You. May our lives and words bring You praise.
