Serve one another in love. The entire law is summed up in one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Galatians 5:13-14
06/22/09 There is a verse in Ephesians 4 that says the law is a tutor that leads us to Christ. The law was designed to show us how impossible it is for us to obey thoroughly, thereby showcasing our need for a Savior. Only Jesus obeyed the law completely. Even if you sum up the entire law in this one command, only Jesus obeyed the law completely. I am currently studying this very thing on my own with the help of a book called “When The Good News Gets Even Better”. It is a wonderful study of the gospels from a first century Jewish perspective. The passage we’re studying in regard to this subject is the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5-7. The entire law is summed up beautifully in those passages. Take a few minutes to really savor those three chapters and let Christ’s love wash over you.
