Motivated By The Law?
I defy anyone to find a solitary text of Scripture in the New Testament that uses the law to motivate, inspire, regulate or even guide the believer.
Believers are motivated by love, inspired by gratitude, regulated by grace and guided by the Holy Spirit.
The whole Word of God, the complete revelation of His will is our law.
Our lives are governed by love, not by fear.
We walk by faith, not by legislation.
We walk in the Spirit, not in the flesh (Romans 8:9-14; Galatians 3:3).
