LOVE!

Galatians 5:14 “For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.”

When we think of “The Law” we could consider the 10 Commandments, the 613 Mosaic Laws, or the entire Bible.  That is a lot to obey.  If we were honest with ourselves we would openly admit that obeying all these individually would be overwhelming impossible.  However; the Lord decided that He could take all these laws and simplify it down to one simple, yet powerful word – LOVE!  When the Bible defines God, we find that God is defined in this one simple word called “Love”.  God has given us the one commandment that not only covers the entire law, but it encompasses the essence of who He really is.  We are to love God, as well as love others.  If you and I would were to study all these laws addressed in scripture we would realize that if we simply loved God and others then it would totally keep us from breaking God’s laws.  For example:

  • When you love God and People then you don’t have to worry about putting anything before Him.
  • When you love God and People then you don’t have to worry about using His name in vain.
  • When you love God and People you don’t have to worry about other graven images
  • When you love God and People you will keep the Sabbath Day holy by attending Church
  • When you love God and People you don’t have to worry about murdering them.
  • When you love God and People you don’t have to worry about honoring your father and mothe
  • When you love God and People you don’t steal from them. 
  • When you love God and People you won’t commit adultery.
  • When you love God and People you won’t lie against them.
  • When you Love God and People you will not find yourself coveting. 

You see?  All we must do is operate in love and it handles all the rest.  No wander it is called the Great Commandment!
