The Laws of Love - (Live Talk)
A Royal Law of Love
Jesus Christ founded the Christian faith on the principle of love— Christians wholeheartedly loving God and each other. God is love; and he that dwells in love dwells in God, and God in him. Ask your friends to explain it to you. See whether they all portray it the same way. Will they describe it as a feeling? Sadly, such consistency is lacking in the world.

Works of the law which do not and did never attain righteousness before conversion Romans , Galatians should not be confused with works out of the Law of the Holy Spirit Which do attain a second justification , James Read also: Ephesians , Colossians , 2 Thessalonians , Galatians , Galatians , 1 Thessalonians Paul is preaching against work-righteousness by keeping the Law which is impossible. This is fulfilled by putting your focus on obeying Jesus through the Holy Spirit.
In the New Testament, it says that God is love 1 Joh But if Jesus Christ is the same yesterday that He is today Heb , then it must also be true that the God of the Old Testament is love. This is not a common descriptor that is applied to the God of the Old Testament. It is commonly said that the God of the Old Testament is vengeful, wrathful, judgmental, and angry. I have heard many Christian preachers say over the pulpit that God is not angry anymore, indicating that a distinction must be made between the God of the Old Testament and the God of the New, because the God of the Old is vengeful, wrathful, judgmental, and angry, while the God of the New is loving, forgiving, merciful, and gracious. So is it true that the Scripture describes two different Gods, a God of the Old Testament who is different in nature and expression than a God of the New Testament?
Where there is love there is life. Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend. Our human compassion binds us the one to the other -- not in pity or patronizingly, but as human beings who have learnt how to turn our common suffering into hope for the future. Philosopher Baruch Spinoza said: "Men who are governed by reason -- that is, who seek what is useful to them in accordance with reason, desire for themselves nothing, which they do not also desire for the rest of mankind, and, consequently, are just, faithful, and honorable in their conduct. According to philosopher Confucius the three recognized moral qualities of men are wisdom, courage and compassion.
Life is all about relationships. A significant part of what it means for us to be created in the image of God is to be relational. God Himself is a relational being. Our greatest joys and sorrows come because of relationships. In order for us to live as we ought, we must have our relationships properly ordered. This means that we must relate to the right things in the right way.
