“The Law of the Lord is Perfect Restoring the Soul”, “The Precepts of the Lord are Right”, and “The Commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.”
What is it that restores the soul and enlightens your eyes? It is the Law of the Lord. His Commandments were given so that mankind might obey them. His Law is like a mirror that reveals the truth. The truth of who you really are. If you are willing to look.
It is important for anyone who is seeking heaven to know and understand the need to obey God’s Law. Though Jesus is the way, truth, and life, obedience to He Law shows that you are truly His servant. You must understand that a day of judgment is coming for every person because we have all broken His Law. The Gospel truth of salvation will have no use to those who believe they have done nothing wrong. That they have not broken God’s Law. But the truth is God has said, “the soul that sins shall die.”
The Law is a much-needed tool to show those who are lost their need for a Savior. To show them that they have a deadly disease called sin. Many do not understand why we need Jesus. It is because He is the cure for sin and death. At one time, we were all enemies of God, wicked, and blind to our sinful ways. Let us have concern, love, and compassion for those who do not know Him yet.
Let us risk offending them with the mirror of the Law. That they may come to the realization that God will send them to Hell if they die in their sins. That is if they do not repent and believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Tell me, how will they know that they need a Savior if they don’t know that they have broken His holy and perfect Law?
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. Psalms 19:7-14
