I’m sure you’ve heard that one before. That’s fine with me, I needed to say it again. I was just taking a shower-which I do on occasion- and was thinking about ‘the Law’ and the Pharisees in comparison with the church.
As I was preaching to myself in my head-which is another thing I do on occasion =]-it occurred to me that every ‘law’ I follow means nothing; it’s a very biblical principle.
Also, it occurred to me that the only thing that matters is my relationship with Jesus Christ. Obedience that comes from knowing the love of Jesus is the only obedience that really matters.
When the love of Jesus surrounds you, and you are filled with His Spirit, then trusting and obeying become who you are, not what you strive to be.
