“The Law of the Lord is Perfect Restoring the Soul”, “The Precepts of the Lord are Right”, “The Commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.”
What is it that restores the soul, and enlightens the eyes? But the Law of the Lord, or the 10 Commandments. It is like a mirror that reveals one’s true self. A drawing of the curtains shines the light of God’s ways on the sinful heart of man.
It is important for the unbeliever to see that they have broken God’s Laws and Commandments. To give them the knowledge of sin and a healthy fear of where they stand before the Lord. To wake them from their sinful slumber with the truth of “The Judgment of the Lord” to come.
I believe it is good and right to use the Law of the Lord when we share the Gospel with an unbeliever.
Because “The Precepts of the Lord are right,” and “The Law of the Lord Converts the Soul.” “Moreover by them, your servant is warned.”
Let them see the disease called sin, that they may not have known they had. So they will run to the Savior seeking the Cure.
At one time all of us who are known by God were enemies of God, wicked, and blind to our sinful ways. Let us have concern, love, and compassion for those who are still lost.
Let us risk the chance of offending them with the light of the Law of the Lord. That they may come to the realization that if they die of the disease of sin, they will perish in God’s place of punishment. How will they know that they need a Savior if they don’t know of their impending doom?
The law of the LORD is perfect, restoring the soul; The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. The precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; The commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; The judgments of the LORD are true; they are righteous altogether. They are more desirable than gold, yes than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb.
Moreover, by them Your servant is warned; In keeping them there is great reward. Who can discern his errors? Acquit me of hidden faults. Also, keep back Your servant from presumptuous sins; Let them not rule over me; Then I will be blameless, And I shall be acquitted of great transgression.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my rock and my Redeemer.
