“Long ago I learned from your decrees that you have established them forever… The entirety of Your word is truth, and every one of Your righteous ordinances endures forever.” (Psalm 119:152, 160)
“Ordinances” – In Hebrew: mishpat; judgment, justice, ordinance; a sentence or formal decree, divine law.
In Psalm 119, God’s Word is stated 170 times in the following ways: “Your word, the law of the Lord, Your/His law, decrees, precepts, statutes, commandments, righteous ordinances, and word of truth.”
The entirety of God’s word is truth, including His law, which endures forever. It’s crucial Christians understad this, as much of the church throws out the law, only preaching grace, resulting in a lukewarm apostate church. And with God, there is an equal balance of mercy and justice. In fact, Jesus said He didn’t come to abolish the law, but to fulfill it (Matthew 5:17) and He raises the bar, “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” (Matthew 5:27-28)
What would a society be like without law? We would be in utter chaos, as is much of the church. We need to wake up!
