There was a pastor who was impressing upon the congregation that we are not under the law when we are in Christ; but we are under a new law, the law of love.
He used this to illustrate: In America there is a law stating a woman must take care of her child. So, a man comes to a new mother's home. He says "Are you taking care of your baby? The Law says you have to." The woman, tenderly holding her baby, said, "I don't need a law to make me take care of my baby." Why? Because she loves her baby! She feeds him, holds him, changes him because she loves him.
I no longer need the Law because I'm under Christ -- a law of LOVE. I was once asked if I thought I had “dying grace”… to which I replied, “Right now, I don’t need dying grace; but I do need the grace of Christ to love the unlovable and those who refuse to love me!”
Thought: The law of love may not change the world but it will change you!!
