Your statues Lord, stand firm…
Psalm 93:5

The grass withers and the flowers fall,
    but the word of our God endures forever.

Isaiah 40:8

Your word, Lord, is eternal;
    it stands firm in the heavens.

Psalm 119:89
Do you notice a theme? What do these Scriptures say about God’s Word, His law, His statutes? 
God’s Word is His Word. It doesn’t change direction like the wind or become outdated. His law endures forever because it is not based on rules or right living. It is based on love.
Jesus was asked once what the most important of the commandments was. He answered, Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength. And love your neighbor as yourself. 

Jesus goes on to say, There is no law greater than these. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets. (Matthew 22:37-40)

The law of love stands firms in the heavens and endures forever. It existed before we did and will continue until we get there. 
How have you been loving God lately? What about others? 
I’m convinced love is the only thing we can take with us when we go. So let’s get to loving. Let’s go beyond nice and kind. Let’s lavishly love with all we have, beyond what we can imagine, over the top and beyond. 
It is how God loves us. Enough to limit Himself in skin and bones and dive into our muck and mire. His love nailed Him to a cross and looked death square in the face. Love drove Him into the grave and brought Him back to life. 
And the only response we can have in return is to love with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength.

Lord, teach me to love like You and not like the world.
