Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
Deut.26:16 - 27:26
“Written On My Heart”
Text: Deut. 27:8
“And you shall write very plainly on the stones all the words of this law.”
God’s Law of Grace through Faith was “Written On My Heart,” when I gave my life to Jesus Christ. That’s on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
God told Israel to “write very plainly on the stones all the words of this law.” The Law of Moses was written on stone and set in one place. The Law of Grace through Faith was written on “the fleshly tablets of the heart.”(2Corin.3:3)
“But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.”(Jer.31:33).
The Law of Moses was a burden to keep, and was based upon animal sacrifices. The Law of Grace through Faith in Christ is a Joy and Pleasure to keep, because it is based upon Perfect Love demonstrated by Jesus Christ death on the Cross for us.
“Oh, how I love Your law!
It is my meditation all the day.”(Psa.119:97). We Love Him BECAUSE He First Loved Us!(1John 4:19).
Even the order in which the Law was written helps us re-ignite our passionate love for our Commander. It begins with: “I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
“You shall have no other gods before Me.”(Exod.20:2-3). Remembering what God saved us from, the cruel and harsh bondage of sin, hopelessness, and without God in this world; brings back deep gratitude, thanksgiving, and passionate Love for His “unspeakable Gift,” of Salvation. We Love Him Supremely! By Loving Him supremely we keep ALL the other Commandments, because we love our Commander more than we love our life!(Luke 14:26).
Listen up Warrior! Our Commander makes it simple for us: Love God Supremely, then you’ll Love Your Fellow Man Equally, and this fulfills All the Commandments of God! His Law is written on our hearts and we meditate on it and are guided by it in all we do and say. Because of Love! Oooh Rah!
