MORNINGTIME 2435
 
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. ON THESE TWO COMMANDMENTS HANG ALL THE LAW and the prophets. Matthew 22:37-40. Think about it for a few minutes. Of all the rules, laws, and regulations that man has come up with during his time here on earth, all he can do is make his life more legalistic and confusing the more he tries to control people and things around him. And then Christ comes along and gets to the very heart of it all by telling  us to Love God first, and man second. Not sure what that means? The Holy Spirit will guide you into ALL Truth. Yes, it should be this simple, but the world would never go for it, so we have to let the world find out the Truth their way. For the Christian, it is this simple and these two rules will become a part of their life to such a degree that the Holy Spirit fits Perfectly into the Believers daily life of interacting with the people around him. It won't be a "Do I have to" attitude, but a,  "Lord, make me more like Your Son that I may be a reflection of Him to others". Living "the Rules" becomes a Joy and an Honor to be pleasing to the Lord, in spite of the worst that man throws at Christians. Christians don't kick at man's rules, they Rejoice and Live in Christ in spite of man's rules. Man's rules don't hinder Christians, they guide the Christian into even more of CHRISTLIKENESS. Christ does the impossible so well, He can have a Christian shine like a finished diamond reflecting every facet towards Christ in a filthy, dead, and dying world.  What a Joy to be a Christian for such a time as this. No other Believers in all of history have been offered a Walk with Christ like we are being offered today. What an Honour, what a Privilege, WHAT A RESPONSIBILITY. Be responsible, Obey Christ, and, Be Blessed.
