Some people (such as the Hebrews in the Old Testament) follow the Law with a legalistic fervor, with their relationship to God becoming a list of dos and don’ts. This wasn’t what God intended or wanted from them.
Key verse about Law: This observance will be for you like a sign on your hand and a reminder on your forehead that this law of the Lord is to be on your lips. For the Lord brought you out of Egypt with his mighty hand (Exodus 13:9, NIV)
A lifelong student of the Bible, Peter DeHaan, PhD, wrote the 700-page website ABibleADay.com to encourage people to explore the Bible. His main blog and many books urge Christians to push past the status quo and reconsider how they practice their faith in every area of their lives.
