Obeying God’s Law is Always Good for Us
Case 7: God's Law
Does God give us the Law to make us miserable and keep us from being happy?
No. The Law is God's good gift to us, designed for His own glory and for our own good. Deuteronomy 6:24a – And the LORD commanded us to observe all these statutes, to fear the LORD our God, for our good always.
This Truth Makes
When the Bible speaks of the “fear of the Lord” as it does in Deuteronomy 6:24, it is talking about serious, submissive trust that respects God’s thoughts above our own. When we truly fear the Lord, we will love what He loves and hate what He hates (sin).
Sin never brings good results. One of the reasons that fearing the Lord is so good for us is that it keeps us from sin.
Obedience will bring joy and peace. Disobedience will cause pain and misery.
God wants what is best for you! Obedience
to the Law is a good thing and brings us many benefits. bedience brings blessing; disobedience brings conflict.
