The Love That Fulfils The Law
Its love that fulfils the Law, it is love that is a debt we are always obligated to pay and shall never be discharged from. It is the love of Christ that it emulates, who’s death upon the cross of Christ fulfilled the very law of God.
LOVE IS WHAT WE WILL ALWAYS OWE ANOTHER.
This is the INDISCHARGEABLE COVENANT we are obligated to keep.
Owe no man anything, but what we are to always owe is to love one another
Love is the ONLY DEBT that should ALWAYS be paying, yet ought to ALWAYS be looked upon as OWING.
This is Christ! His is the Love that keeps on loving and we are his disciples.
We are the beneficiaries of a love that can NEVER BE REPAID, and so we OWE HIS LOVE TO ALL MEN, for ALL time under ALL circumstances.
When all other things of the world are passed, we know that Love itself remains; that famous passage in 1 Corinthinans declares this;
1 Cor 13:1-10
1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, 5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; 6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; 7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. 9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. 10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away
