Law and Love

Jeremiah 4-5, Matthew 5:17-32


Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. Matthew 5:17


Our culture is accepti.ng of ungodly lifestyles. Our church does not preach hellfire and brimstone as we used to. None of this changes that fact that God hates it when we disobey him and disregard his laws. But it is not obedience that will save us. Jesus came to take on himself the punishment (ours) for all the sins of the whole world. He took it on himself and cried out from the cross that we be forgiven. In his death he paid our debt. We honor Jesus by trusting the value of the law and adhering to the greatest commandment—to love one another. God knows that it is love that changes hearts. Changed yours—didn’t it?
