Topic: Laws of God
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. (Matthew 22:37-40 KJV)
There are at least 613 laws of God in the Bible and yet, none of us may not able to keep them holy. Even though God understand our limitation, He gave us two simple laws for us to follow: love God and love other people. These two simple laws sum up the Ten Commandments that God gave them to Moses.
Let’s forward to our century. Even though our country was founded by Christian leaders, we continuously see that our moral values have been declined by our sinful acts. Let’s look at the public school curriculum. We continuously see that our children learn about other faiths, except Christianity, through Henry Potter books, mythology, astronomy, earth science, sex education, and history of crime investigation. If the religious professor would teach on the Christianity, the students would learn the historical aspect of it with using the secular resources and non-realistic resources, such as deVinci Code, other books of the gospel that are not part of the Bible.
Instead for people to follow two simple laws, they have made laws for themselves. Laws that are not spiritually healthy relationship with God. Laws that are focused for themselves and not others. People have been divorced themselves from God. Now, we see that homosexual activists are coming out from closet and advocate for their rights. We also see that our nation is trying to make more treaties with United Nation, which it is the main location for the coming of the world dictator, antichrist. Lately, we continuously see that our children have been killed by gunman, natural disaster, and sexual abused by their teachers and older kids. As a disability advocate, I continuously read news articles on disability discrimination that the people are facing in their jobs, schools, hospitals, and other public places. All these stories are sad for our nation and for God. Our nation is in high risk for God’s judgment. I hate to say this, but it is the true. God’s judgment will begin in the house of God (I Peter 4:17) and we are fit to this category.
But God is waiting for us to repent our sins and willing to reestablish His relationship with us. Are you the one? I don’t know what you are facing now, but God is willing take you through the obstacles with you, if you’d give up your own effort to Him. Even though I have a disability since the birth, it doesn’t mean that my life is useless. Instead, God has a greater plan for your and my life that He can use us to show the path of life to others who don’t know Jesus Christ.
God planned to send His Son, Jesus Christ, to us to pay our sins, so we can have free access to God and develop personal relationship with Him. Would you like to have personal relationship with God? If you’d like to know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, I’d like to encourage you to do two simple things. First, confess your sins and invite Jesus Christ to your life. Paul said in Romans 10:9-11, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” There is no sinner prayer formula. Instead, you just talk to God at where you are now. Secondly, I’d like to encourage you to find a good solid biblical teaching church and Christian friends. They can help you to build strong relationship with God.
