Law (of Christ), Summary: The new “law of Christ” is the divine love, as wrought into the renewed heart by the Holy Spirit Romans 5:5; Hebrews 10:16 and outflowing in the energy of the Spirit, unforced and spontaneous, toward the objects of the divine love ; 2 Corinthians 5:14-20; 1 Thessalonians 2:7,8. It is, therefore, “the law of liberty” ; James 1:25; 2:12 in contrast with the external law of Moses. Moses’ law demands love, ; Leviticus 19:18; Deuteronomy 6:5; Luke 10:27 Christ's law is love ; Romans 5:5; 1 John 4:7,19,20 and so takes the place of the external law by fulfilling it ; Romans 13:10; Galatians 5:14. It is the “law written in the heart” under the New Covenant.
