God’s Love Is A Many Splendored Thing

In times past, many labored under the law of sin and death; however, in these last days, God has given us a better commandment, the Law of Love. While others grind out their existence here on earth, we who live by the Law of Love, taste of a heavenly life, emanating from God Himself.

As with all things that are earthly, the law of sin and death is passing away. Though many cling to Moses even now, those who are led by His Spirit experience newness of life through Jesus Christ. Therefore, our conduct towards each other reflects a better way of living in the New Heavens and New Earth.

The greatest of all laws is the Law of Love

The Law of Love is greater than any earthly law could ever be, and while some labor under the New Testament as law, like the Galatians, we know of no such commandment. God’s love is our only creed.

Paul speaks of the Law of Love by saying,

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.”

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (NIV)

Whatever is not of love is not of God

You have heard that whatever is not of faith is sin, but I say to you, whatever is not of love is not of God. Furthermore, we know that whatever does not flow from His Divine love, profits us and others nothing. Only as we manifest His nature, do we find approval from our Father.

The Law of Love is the original law from which all other laws were derived. In fact, the law of Moses is summed up in only two sayings,

Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind and love thy neighbour as thyself

If the law of Moses and the prophets hang on these two precepts, the Law of Love transcends them all. Additionally, the Law of Love supersedes any of man’s traditions or doctrines, too. In fact, when our beliefs violate God’s love, we do err.

Paul says,

“For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth anything, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love. “

Galations 5:6

I also say, that believing in doctrine avails us nothing unless we live a faith which works by love. If our doctrine makes us do what is contrary to the Law of Love, Christ has, for us, become of none effect.

The Law of Love is not really a law, but a deep desire to be vulnerable to both God and man. If we are smitten on one cheek, we present the other cheek, too. Seeing a brother or sister in need, we give them whatever we have to help. If we have more than we can use, we sell or make it available for all. God’s Law of Love doesn’t force anything, but we willingly do whatever we can to meet each other’s needs.

God writes His law of love upon our hearts

YHWH writes His Law of Love upon the fleshly tablets of our hearts. In other words, we desire to meet each other’s needs in whatever way we can because the desire to show love is in us. It doesn’t matter if the way we love is approved by others, it only matters that we meet each other’s needs as God leads.

In conclusion, as we live by the Law of Love we do the will of our Father. As we allow our Lover to manifest His nature through us, we become Love. I encourage you brethren, love as He loves and become the children of the Most High. Amen.
