Torah

I delight to do Your will, O my God; Your Law is within my heart.” Psalm 40:8

Can we delight in doing “The Law” of God? Often when people think of “The Law” or “Torah” of God, they think about condemnation or judgement. This is mostly your conscience talking, because you are guilty of sin.  But truly “The Law” or “Torah” was given to us by God as a road map to holiness.

The Hebrew meaning of the word “Torah” means direction, instruction, and teaching. The Torah is a roadmap laid out by your Heavenly Father so you can lead a peaceful and productive life. Billions of people around the world seek religions or read books looking for direction and enlightenment, God provides all of this in his “Torah”

Another reason for Torah is to define sin. Sin is obviously the downfall of mankind and what keeps us separated from God. So how would we know what sin is, unless it was defined in Gods “Torah”. Is God telling you this to condemn you, No he’s telling you these things to instruct you, to warn you, to keep you away from harm.

Just as a parent instructs their children, God is our Heavenly Father, and provides instructions for us to live a productive life. Now over time religion has abused the “Torah” and used it as a tool to condemn and control people. However the Bible tells us we are all guilty of sin. So does following the Torah make us righteous, No, only through Jesus Christ can we be made righteous.

However Gods Law or Torah , still should be the foundation for our life to follow, we are not perfect and are going to make mistakes, the blood of Christ has paid for our sins, the Word of God should be the lamp for our feet in Jesus Name Amen

    “So how would we know what sin is, unless it was defined in Gods ‘Torah’?”

    So true! (Romans 10:14 – How shall they hear…) As you pointed out, however, many people want to “write off” this instruction as outdated.
