Beloved, this is a post that is absolutely necessary and although the size of its content is not great the impact of its word is! One thing that sets a people apart; a people who are in Christ, is that His law is continually on their mind, is grafted into their hearts and souls, and they love it as they love Him, for God is no only a Father, a Savior and a Redeemer, he is also a Righteous Judge. With that said, I now invite you Into My HEART...
“Let’s call sin for what it is—our willingness to separate ourselves from God.”
For the heavens, the earth and the sea are governed by laws. Everything that the Lord God created is held up by His Law. All of humanity is governed by laws. The U.S. is a country based upon laws. Even in the remotest location in the most indiscriminate village in the furthest part of a nation or continent, a people have a system in place and established, governing what is right and what is wrong. What is good and what is bad. What is just and what is unjust. And through it we inevitably see the classification of what is sin and what is righteousness.
For by your words you will either be justified [acquitted of all charges] or condemned.
Yes, we are a human race governed by laws and for anyone who disregards, rejects and scoffs at God’s Law, surely they have testified against themselves, having condemned themselves, that they are a sinner, for all of God’s Word is Law. Whether it be the letter of the Law being formerly known as the “10 Commandments” in which all economical, civil and judicial law branch out from, or the Law of Grace, in which Christ the Lord died on the Cross that we may once and for all be justified before God through it, we are a people governed by Law.
