/5(2). As Jeremiah 31 made so clear already, the new covenant is effective because it rests on indicatives, not imperatives; on gospel, not law; on promises, not commands. Notice that I didn’t say the new covenant dispenses with imperatives, laws, or commands, but merely that it is not based on them.
God has done in Christ what the Law could not do. The difference between law and gospel is being saved by grace alone and not by the law. The law condemns us but the loving grace of Jesus Christ through the cross is our only salvation to the Father.
As an Elder in our church, the book has helped me to serve the sick and shut-ins in our congregation. It is well worth the time to read it/5(37). Gerhard O. Forde was an American Lutheran theologian who wrote extensively on the Protestant Reformation and Lutheran Theology and tradition.

Well tonight we’re going to turn to a very, very important subject, the Law and the gospel – the Law and the gospel.
In the general picture out there of evangelicalism today, there is certainly much. The law before referred to was the law of the gospel.
