The Perfect Law

Whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom and continues in it -…they will be blessed in what they do.  James 1: 25

How do I look into the perfect law? What is the perfect law?  I think the teachings of Jesus and his apostles are the perfect law.  It is the law that promises forgiveness if we ask for it, the law that says that Jesus is our atonement. By keeping Jesus present in our consciousness we are transformed by his Holy Spirit more and more into his likeness.  And that’s where the freedom and blessings come.

Jesus himself was totally free because he had his will under control.  He did whatever he wanted which was what the Father wanted. Jesus’ work was not impeded by pride or greed or fear or lust.  He was free to love completely . The freer we become in Jesus, the more love will fill our hearts and that will be our best blessing.  We will love God more and we will love other people more.  What can be more significant and satisfying than that?
