Romans 3.21a, But now. Some consider these two words to be the center of the Bible. We see God deliver us into a new life through Jesus Christ. But now, both the Law and the Love (Jesus) have a purpose in his plan. But now, the law can't save us, but it allows us direction. But now, the Love (Jesus) is the salvation that fills the hearts of humanity with hope through grace for those who allow themselves forgiveness, acceptance, and trust. But now, through our decision to believe in this Hope (Jesus), we are filled with God alive within us.
All parts of the growing season play an important role in the fullness of life that is produced for harvest or its purpose.
The same is true with the Law, the Love (Jesus), the Holy Spirit and eternity; God uses the Law to give us direction, the Love (Jesus) to save us from our sin and eternal death, and the Holy Spirit to grow us into a beautiful and full relationship with the Love that allows us a place with God for eternity.
Often we create a rough, crooked, and pain-filled path for ourselves...
For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. 1 Corinthians 13:12
