Love vs. Law

First Published July 1977

First of all, we know that all Mosaic laws are null and void as far as we are concerned. Christ was the end of the law, He fulfilled the law, and from then on we were no longer under the law!

It is impossible for anyone to be good according to the Mosaic law. The Mosaic law makes every one of us a sinner because not one of us can keep it. Nobody has ever kept the ten commandments except Jesus himself, nobody! It is impossible!

That is why Jesus had to die for us, so that we could be forgiven and be saved by His grace and His mercy and His love without the law! By the law we are judged for our sins and condemned to die and to suffer. But Jesus came to save us by love, by His grace, by His mercy, showing that love and mercy are greater than the law, and He says so. "For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost." (John 1:17, Galatians 5:14, Titus 3:5)

Jesus said you need to go back and learn what God meant when he said, "I will have mercy and not sacrifice." (Matthew 9:13; 12:7) In other words, I would rather see you have love and not this sacrificial dutiful law-keeping offering of sacrifices and duties. I would rather you would give love to somebody than to just be so self-righteous.

There is no other law but love!

God now only judges us according to whether we have love or no love--whether we have love or hate--whether what we do is done for love or lack of love and selfishness.

If you know you are acting in love, then you can go ahead by faith according to God's Word and you don't need anything else. You don't need any other laws to go by, you don't need any other laws to confirm it. You are not guilty or disobeying God's laws as long as whatever you're doing you're doing in love.... so love!
