ALTHOUGH THE LAW CAME BY MOSES, GRACE, MERCY, FORGIVENESS, LOVE AND TRUTH CAME THROUGH JESUS CHRIST, OUR SALVATION: "For the LAW was given by MOSES, but GRACE and TRUTH came by Jesus Christ." (Jn.1:17)
For Jesus FULFILLED the law and became the end of the law so that it PASSED AWAY: "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to FULFILL."..."For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth." (Mt.5:17; Heb.7:12,18; Rom.10:4)
JESUS THEREFORE BROUGHT A NEW LAW OF LOVE, God's ONLY law for the lovers of Jesus! Now God's ONLY law for us is LOVE, which more than fulfills the Mosaic Law: "Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God...and thy neighbour as thyself...On these hang all the law and the prophets." "Owe no man anything, but to love one another: For he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law." "For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. But the fruit of the Spirit is love...against such there is no law." (Mat.22:36-40; Rom.13:8; Gal.5:14,22,23)
WE ARE SAVED BY FAITH IN GOD'S LOVE, HIS MERCY AND HIS GRACE AND TRUTH IN JESUS CHRIST. Therefore the Apostle James says that we who do the will or the LOVE of God now dwell under a NEW law, a PERFECT law of LIBERTY, FREEDOM from the old law. (Jam.1:25) Therefore since we do all that we do in LOVE, ALL THINGS are NOW lawful to us in LOVE, including our SEXUAL FREEDOM, as long as it is done in the unselfish, sacrificial LOVE of GOD. (1Cor.6:12; 10:23) "ALL THINGS are LAWFUL unto me."
NO, WE DO NOT HAVE TO KEEP THE TEN COMMANDMENTS! For us they are NO MORE! For us they are GONE FOREVER! Thank God! We now only have to keep GOD'S LAW of LOVE, His ONLY law--LOVE! For the laws of Moses are no more to the believer in Jesus! We now only have the LAW of JESUS, God's only law, His LOVE!-A stronger law than Moses'!
THEREFORE WHATSOEVER YOU DO IN THE UNSELFISH SACRIFICIAL LOVE OF JESUS IS RIGHT AND LAWFUL! Whatever you do in LOVE is the LAW--and that's ALL, that's it! God's ONLY LAW is LOVE!... Now ALL things are lawful unto us in LOVE, Praise God! As long as it's done in LOVE it keeps God's ONLY LAW of LOVE!
HAVE YOU ACCEPTED GOD'S LOVE IN JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR OWN PERSONAL SAVIOUR? Do you have God's Spirit of JESUS in your heart? Do you LOVE HIM and OTHERS as much as you do YOURSELF? Do you do unto OTHERS as you would have them do unto YOU?
If so, you are FREE from the old dead Mosaic Laws! Now all you must do is keep JESUS' LAW of LOVE! But it is GREATER and STRICTER even than the old Mosaic Law, because now EVERYTHING you do must be done in HIS LOVE!
May God bless you with His TRUTH, FREEDOM and LOVE!
