The Law of Christ (Part 3)

Category: Full Sermons, Video

The law of Christ is superior to every other revelation of law because it flows from His “new commandment” that we are to “loved as He loved.” This Christlike love embodies and fulfills the essence of the law and gives us the highest revelation of man’s duty imaginable. In keeping with this fact, love is the central emphasis of the New Testament regarding the Christian’s life and conduct. Because Christ Himself is our “law,” the “law of Christ” presents both a wonderful and an impossible standard. It can only be fulfilled in our lives as Christ Himself in the Person of the Holy Spirit, lives His life through us. – Charles Leiter (pg. 119 “The Law of Christ“)
