LAW means "LOVE AT WORK".

"IF YOU KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS, YOU WILL REMAIN IN MY LOVE, JUST AS I HAVE KEPT MY FATHER'S COMMANDMENTS & REMAIN IN HIS LOVE." (Jn.15:9-17)

LAW is:

L-ove

A-t

W-ork!

Jesus tells the disciples that keeping the commandments will express their LOVE for him.

It is to bless not burden.

In Acts 15:7-21, Peter said that Mosaic Law should not burden the Gentile converts. The binding custom & rule of conduct, like circumcision, must not be imposed on the Gentile converts, as wanted by the some Jewish Christians.

Without partiality, he said, "We believe that we are saved through the grace of the Lord Jesus, in the same way as they."

Love's fruit is joy.

Jesus says, "I have told you this so that my joy might be in you & your joy might be complete."

If we are not joyful in obeying the law, perhaps we lack love.

The laws in ECQ, MECQ, GCQ, whatever it is, the cue is, "Love one another," as Jesus says.

L-ove

A-lways

W-orks!
