Law of God“I will place my law within them and write it upon their hearts; I will be their God, and they shall be my people.” – Jeremiah 31: 33

Jesus Christ came to write the law upon our hearts. For so long we believed it was all about the law. Jesus came not to abolish the law but to fulfill it. He gave us the beatitudes so that we could live the law within our hearts through our actions and in our everyday lives. The law should direct us towards God. When it does not then we have lost sight of the reasons for the law. Let God write upon our hearts so that we may lead the life God wants us to lead; with the purpose of loving him and our neighbor unconditionally.
