Law vs. Grace by D.L. Moody

BookThe Law was given by Moses. 
Grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. 
The Law says—This do, and thou shalt live. 
Grace says—Live, and then thou shalt do. 
The Law says—Pay me that thou owest. 
Grace says—I frankly forgive thee all. 
The Law says—The wages of sin is death. 
Grace says—The gift of God is eternal life. 
The Law says—The soul that sinneth, it shall die. 
Grace says—Whosoever believeth in Jesus, though he were dead, yet shall he live; and whosoever liveth and believeth in Him shall never die. 
The Law pronounces—Condemnation and death. 
Grace proclaims—Justification and life. 
The Law says—Make you a new heart and a new spirit. 
Grace says—A new heart will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you. 
The Law says—Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. 
Grace says—Blessed is the man whose iniquities are forgiven, whose sin is covered; blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute iniquity. 
The Law says—Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength. 
Grace says—Herein is love: not that we love God, but that He loved us, and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
