The Law of God

The Faithful of Israel managed to keep the Law of God. Who can fault the love of Jeremiah? He’s called, by some, the Weeping Prophet whose message was tragic to his own ears. His was a prophecy of doom and gloom, the defeat and captivity of his own people, the house of Judah. Jeremiah loved God and (allowing for sacrifice) kept His Law. Apostle Paul reminds us that God’s Law is still kept by the Faithful.

“Owe nothing to anyone except to love one another; for the one who loves the other has fulfilled the Law. For this, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and if there is any other commandment, it is summed up in this saying, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Love works no evil; therefore love is the fulfillment of the Law.” (Romans 13:8-10)

Practice makes perfect. Jesus is God’s sacrifice. He’s our Savior, not our excuse.
