The Law

What has the Law to do with Love?

The Law shows up sin by telling us
… what not to do!
Now all these don’ts won’t save you,
… but what they are pointing to is
the royal law!

      ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself,’
      James 2:8

To truly love someone,
you need to respect, honour and value them,
and that is what the law is wanting to show you.
In fact Jesus put it this way,

      Jesus said to him, ‘You shall love the Lord your God
      with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’
      This is the first and great commandment.
      And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’
      On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.
      Matthew 22:37-40

Love, the God kind of love, may not seem to be physical,
… however love only becomes real in our lives
when it physically manifests or is physically expressed,
as Jesus showed us in His life on earth.

What does this have to do with the law?
The Law very graphically describes what love is NOT,
… those physical actions and things we do
that hinder or negate the Law of love!

      You shall have no other god than Elohim.
      You shall not kill, steal, destroy others or their things
      … but by valuing others, you love others,
      … and by loving others, you love God!

By simply valuing others, the Law is no longer an issue,
because you are living the God kind of love!
