The Royal Law

Posted on Posted in Challenge, Love

                                                … of love!

There are many great promises in the Bible,
… that seem to be conditional to observing certain laws.

      My son, do not forget my law,
      but let your heart keep my commands;
      For length of days and long life and peace they will add to you.
      Proverbs 3 1-8

Everyone wants to live a long healthy life,
… but how do you live God’s law?
And since we are no longer under the Old Covenant
… are we not free from the LAW and living under grace?
Yes we are…
So what law can there possibly be in the covenant of grace?
Jesus summed it up in one word …

      If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture,
      ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself,’ you do well;
      James 2 8

      The Royal Law as the apostle James tells us … is love!
      And how do you live this love?
      By valuing others, by reaching out to others,
      … by being there for others
      in the same way as God has been and still is there for us!

God loves us and gave us His best through the Lord Jesus,
… demonstrating the royal law of love to us.
As we start living our lives for others,
… we will be fulfilling that law,

and God will fulfill His Word, His promises to us!
