Law of Christ

Bear one another’s burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ. Galatians 6:2

Here the Apostle Paul talks about the “Law of Christ”, this is not the same as the “Law of Moses” that was given down at Mt Sinai. Remember Jesus fulfilled the Old Law on the cross when he said “It Is Finished”, anyone who is now in Christ is living by the Law of Christ which is Grace.  So what is the Law of Christ?

Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. Galatians 6:7

The legalist mocks the Law of Christ, saying this is a license to sin. However as Paul states God is not mocked. Whatever you sow you will reap. Meaning you live a life of sin you are going to reap a life of death and destruction.

The morality of the Law has not changed, Sin is Lawlessness. When you live in sin your actions don’t love God or your Neighbor which is the fulfillment of The Law

And He said to him, “‘YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND.’ This is the great and foremost commandment. The second is like it, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.’ “On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets.” Matthew 22:38-40

Jesus laid out what the Law of Christ is, Love God and Love your Neighbor. This is the fulfillment of The Law. When you study the Mosaic Law, you will find a pattern. Every commandment is about loving God or your Neighbor.

Therefor Bear each other’s burdens and worship God with all your heart, mind and soul. This is the fulfillment of The Law of Christ Amen!
