Why Love Surpasses the Law

“Jesus depicted the ethical law as a mirror. You can take a gander at a mirror and find that your face is filthy, however you don’t proceed to rub your face on the mirror to clean it.”

~ Ravi Zacharias

Simply by something that rises above whatever we would actually would we be able to beat the lamentable stalemate among us and God.

We are needed to satisfy the Law, yet by the Law alone we are denounced, on the grounds that we can’t in any way, shape or form keep it consummately. Also, when we discover we can’t accomplish something that God requires, when we earnestly try to comply with the LORD, it causes a lot of internal clash. This internal clash is important for the existential abyss we are at chances with for our entire lives – until, that is, we come to call Christ, Savior and Lord.

Love outperforms the Law since it recuperates all our blame and disgrace at its source, where we would somehow be left to flop.

We should not overlook, similar to the mirror, the Law is helpful. It shows us our wrong; the stains of over a wide span of time – our transgression. Yet, the mirror – as an analogy of the Law – can’t support us, similarly as the Law can’t support us. The mirror simply guides us toward the wash cloth and cleanser that can address the messy face, much like the Law just focuses us to the cross that can address a grimy life.

We should have the cross as a method of grasping that God has cleared a path for broken, blemished individuals to appreciate cooperation with him.

Also, we should have the restoration as confirmation that Jesus defeated demise, similarly as he conquered sin on the cross.

Moral law is just a large portion of the story. It shows us reality. It shows us what we need. We need Jesus, who came both as the Law and the Prophets, not to abrogate the Law, yet to satisfy it.

Love is the satisfaction of the Law, for adoration outperforms the Law, both by aim and in fact. Love increases present expectations over the Law. It makes it simpler to comply, yet it urges us to arrive at higher.

Simply by adoration could the grasp of the Law over us be vanquished.

Simply by what God had made before creation itself could have the ability to override the Law – a thing that all mankind needs and requires; what sounds good to a human, yet has no sense, since it doesn’t work.
