The Love LawFebruary 12, 2016
"A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another" (John 13:34).
God's family is a love family.
And the love law of the family of God is, "That ye love one another; as I have loved you."
How did God love us? Did He love us because we deserved it? No. God loved us while we were yet unlovely. God loved us while we were yet sinners! (And think about this: If God loved us with so great a love while we were yet sinners and unlovely - when we were His enemies - do you think He loves us any less now that we are His children? No, a thousand times no!)
Love is the only commandment of the love family. If you love another person, you won't steal from him. If you love someone, you won't kill him. You won't covet his house. You won't tell a lie about him. Therefore, divine love is the fulfilling of the law.
Since love is the law of the family of God, one step out of love is a step into sin. If you've made such a step, repent and get back into walking in love. To fellowship with your Father, to walk with God, to walk in God's realm, you must walk in love - for God is love.
Confession: I love others as Christ loved me. Love is the law I am under. I walk in love. Therefore, I have fellowship with my Father Who is love.
