Thank God we’re not in jail, but if we’re honest, we may have broken a few laws during our lifetime. On a small scale, we may have taken paper clips, pens, or other small items from work that really didn’t belong to us. That’s call stealing. So glad we know better now. However, on a larger scale, people that break the laws are usually caught and put in jail. For when laws are broken, the penalty incurred lets us know we were not at liberty to perform such acts. Simply put, there are consequences for breaking laws; laws of man and laws of God.
Still, are you aware there are some things we can do that’s not against the law; no matter how much we do them? God’s law (His Word) tells us there are no laws against love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, nor self-control. Isn’t it good to know we can demonstrate as much of these as we want without breaking any laws? Although some have been put in jail for such causes, God has no law against them. Can you name anyone who “broke” one of those laws and were incarcerated? The answer is a resounding no. However, we can name at least one who not only was jailed, but died for enforcing all of these. His name is Jesus.
I will keep on thanking God that He broke no laws to win my salvation.
