God's Laws are for Our Good

            Have you had your Joy Juice today?  There is no law that says you must drink it; it’s your choice.

            Law is  the system of rules that a particular country or community recognizes as regulating the actions of its members. We must obey the law or suffer the consequences. That’s the legal system of our country.  But what about the law of God? 

God’s laws are the rules of the Kingdom of God and His way of life, and they are divine and perfect in intent, equity and administration. The apostle Paul said God’s law is “holy and just and good” as well as “spiritual” (Romans 7:12, 14).

King David wrote, “The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul,” and he went on to describe the beauty and benefits of God’s testimonies, statutes, commandments and judgments— (Psalm 19:7-11).

Biblical laws are meant to be observed by all countries and all people, for God created all people. But how short we fall when it comes to obeying these laws!  Maybe it’s because we don’t think the Bible applies to us today????  Let’s be reminded that God is same yesterday, today and in the days to come. 

 When God wrote the 10 Commandments in stone, He was writing the foundational framework for how mankind (not just Israel) should interact with God and with each other. There are many laws in the Bible. The important thing to grasp is that God gave the law out of love so that it might “go well with us.” 

Obeying God's law leads to joy in the Lord.
