Lex Sancta | The Law is Holy

"So then, the law is holy, and the commandment is holy, righteous, and good" - Romans 7:12 (ESV).


Reading this passage, three words have come into my focus: sin, law, and love.

In the beginning, when God created the Earth, he put the man and the woman in Eden, where there was the tree of knowledge of good and evil. God is the One, who knows best what is good and what is bad for us.

We should always remember, that He loves us, He wants our happiness, He wants what is good for us.

Sometimes we don't know, that something is bad or harmful for us, something may seem good and nice, but in fact, it leads to evil.

Therefore, God gives us the law. To help us and protect us from evil, from harm and destruction. Within the frameworks of the law, we can feel safe, and we can love freely, with pure and sincere love.

The important is to trust in God, to keep in mind His endless love towards us. To be thankful for the law, that He gave us from His love to help us on the way to holiness. Amen.
