8311 morality, and redemption

The morality which is appropriate for God’s own people is expressed in the OT law, and in the person and teaching of Jesus Christ.

Relationship with God is expressed in moral terms

In the moral standards God expects of his people Lev 11:44-45; Mt 5:48 See also Mt 5:43-44 pp Lk 6:27-28; Lk 6:35-36; Eph 4:31-5:3; 1Pe 1:15-16; 3Jn 11

In God’s moral laws Isa 51:4; Ro 7:12 See also Ex 20:1-7; Dt 6:25; Ps 119:137-138; Ps 147:19-20; Pr 29:18; Isa 51:7

In God’s denunciation of immorality and religious hypocrisy Am 2:6-7 See also Isa 1:15-23; Am 5:21-24; Mic 6:8; Eph 5:5; Col 3:5-7

In the life and teaching of Jesus Christ Jn 1:14 See also Mt 5:17-20; Jn 1:17-18; Jn 3:19; Heb 4:15

The incentive for moral change lies in what God has done in redemption

In the OT Dt 24:17-18 See also Lev 19:13-18,35-36; Dt 15:12-15; Dt 24:21-22

In the NT 1Co 6:19-20 See also Ro 12:1-2

Moral change brought about by God’s work of renewal

Eze 36:26-27; 1Co 6:9-11 See also Ro 8:3-4,11-14; Gal 5:19-24; Eph 4:22-24; Php 2:12-13; Col 3:8-12; Heb 8:10; Jer 31:33
