Reading: Matthew 7:7-12
“So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.” (v.12)
Ever had the experience of being asked to memorise the Ten Commandments at Sunday School? Suffering from poor memory? If such is the case, no worries—just love your neighbour as yourself and you wouldn’t be breaking any law!
Finding it hard to love? Again, no worries—Jesus can enable you, us!
“We love because he first loved us.” – I John 4:19 (NIV)
“Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be silenced and the whole world held accountable to God. Therefore no-one will be declared righteous in his sight by observing the law…. But now a righteousness from God, apart from law, has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Jesus Christ.” – Romans 3:19-24 (NIV)
