Love is the fulfillment of the law

“Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.”‭‭Romans‬ ‭13:10‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Under the old covenant the nation of Israel lived under the demands of the law. They were not filled with the Holy Spirit and had to perform animal sacrifice after animal sacrifice to atone for their sins. 

But in Christ we live under the new covenant. We are not bound by the law and we are called to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit. Loving the Lord with our whole heart and loving our neighbor as ourselves sums up the law. 

If we are truly following the leading of the Holy Spirit we will do all things in love. Every decision we make will be driven by the love of Christ. The only way we grow sensitive to the Holy Spirit is by spending time alone with Him. 

Christian is a journey in growing in freedom. The more we come to know the Lord and the depths of His love for us, the more our lives are transformed. May we do all things in love.
