Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. (Romans 13:8-10 ESV)
Hymn ELH 492:3,6 The Law of God Is Good and Wise
To those who help in Christ have found
And would in works of love abound
It shows what deeds are His delight
And should be done as good and right.
To Jesus we for refuge flee,
Who from the curse has set us free,
And humbly worship at His throne,
Saved by His grace through faith alone.
Heavenly Father, help me to follow Your Law out of love and thankfulness for all that You, in Your mercy, have done for me.
