Law of Christ

He is our Salvation Luke 2:30 Luke 19:9; in that He is the truth and the way and the life, no one can get to the Father (where we are safe) unless it be by Him John 14:6.  So that He is the light of the world. He who follows Him shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life. John 8:12.  God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth John 4:24. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be.  So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God Romans 8:6-8. For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live Romans 8:13.  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made us free from the law of sin and death. Romans 8:2. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life Galatians 6:8.  Jesus put it in very plain language in how one is to live by the spirit when he gave this command:  “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me” Matt 16:24.

If you love Jesus you will keep His commandments John 14:15.  For He who has His commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Him. And he who loves Him will be loved by the Father, and Jesus will love him and manifest Himself to him John 14:21.  For as followers of Christ we will be known and identified by what fruit we produce Matt 7:17.  For the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.  And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.  If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another Gal 5:22-26.  For we must ever take care to remember that we are not our own. For do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?  For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s 1 Cor 6:19-20.  If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God Col 1:3 and not the things rooted in self and this world.

Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!

Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand.

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;  and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.  The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me (Paul), these do, and the God of peace will be with you Phil 4:4-9.

  1. Just saw you were banned on CF. I haven’s found anything amiss in the few articles I’ve read written here. You seem to have a zeal for Christ. Stay close to Him.

    In Christ
