It’s All Very Simple

It’s just common sense in action

Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. Matthew 5:17

Sometimes we start thinking if Jesus took all our sins upon Himself, we can do anything we want, and God will forgive us. We figure all those commandments and sacrifices were for the old days—before Jesus—and we don’t have to be concerned with them any longer. Well, back up, Jack! We didn’t get a free pass when He took our sins away; we got an opportunity to be a part of God’s plan.

Jesus took away the rituals (I don’t know that those were ever God’s idea in the first place), but He didn’t take away the commandments. The commandments are God’s guidelines for a life filled with peace, joy, righteousness, and, most of all, love. And, when you get right down to it, the commandments are pretty much just common sense, and they are ultimately all about love. Read them, and see if you don’t agree.

God is love, and He desires we love Him as much as He loves us, because He knows when we do so, we will begin to become like Him, and all the other commandments will come naturally to us.

He’s got a plan, and it’s a great one!
