The Law

"I worship the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the Law and in the Prophets."
~ Acts 24:14 (NKJV)

We know that the law is good if one uses it lawfully, knowing this: that the law is not made for a righteous person, but for the lawless ...
~ 1 Timothy 1:8-9 (NKJV)

"Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold."
~ Matthew 24:11-12 (NKJV)

Thoughts from Scripture about the law of God.

The Law and Prophets are not enemies of Christianity, even when legalistic men wrongly use and apply them to impair Christian liberty.

The law is a good tutor to bring us to Christ, to teach us what sin is, and to exalt God.

Christ came to fulfill the Law and the Prophets in their entirety.

God reveals wondrous things in His law.

Jesus is the Word of God, He is truth, and His law is truth.

Those who love the law have great peace.

We know we are in the final hours of the last days, for we see false prophets deceiving even those within the church, we see lawlessness abound, and we see the love of many grow cold.

Almighty Father, You have exalted above all things your name and your word, and every word you have given us is good. Please teach us to love Your law so we will not stumble. Please teach us to accept Christ's fulfilment of the law on our behalf in grateful, gracious liberty.
