Jesus summed up God’s law of love as follows:
“‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ “This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ “On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” Matthew 22:37-40 (NKJV). Jesus was not teaching that a person needed to keep all the ordinances of the Law as found in Exodus, Leviticus, and Numbers.
Anyone who accepts Jesus as savior and consecrates his life to do God’s will is not under the Law. Galatians 3:22-25 (NLT), “But the Scriptures declare that we are all prisoners of sin, so we receive God's promise of freedom only by believing in Jesus Christ. 23 Before the way of faith in Christ was available to us, we were placed under guard by the law. We were kept in protective custody, so to speak, until the way of faith was revealed. 24 Let me put it another way. The law was our guardian until Christ came; it protected us until we could be made right with God through faith. 25 And now that the way of faith has come, we no longer need the law as our guardian.”
The Apostle Paul further explained, “for Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.” “Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law.” Romans 10:4 and 3:28.
Christians keep the Law of Love. By loving God with our whole beings and loving others as we love ourselves, we are actually fulfilling the spirit of the Law and walking in the 10 commandments. “The righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.” Romans 8:4.
