LOVE: The Royal Law

LOVE: The Royal Law; God’s own law


If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you do well; James 2:8 

James-2-vs-8-NKJV LOVE: The Royal Law

The word royal is used when talking about Rulers, Kings and when a law is royal it means it’s directly from the King. Thus, from our text, the law that says “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” is directly from the King which is God, made known to us by Jesus, the son of God (You shall love your neighbor as yourself. Matthew 22:39)

In the Bible there are different principles God had ordained to turn us into principals;these principles are Laws. And the most important of them all is the Law of Love. 

The preeminent attribute of a Christian is to love..(.Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. 1 John 4:8,) (By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:35) Read also:  Mark 12:28-31, 1 Peter 3:7, Ephesians 5:25-29. 

If you keep working in hatred and bitterness there is a consequence. If you only love those that love you or love only those in your tribe, you are not different from the Gentiles. The most powerful tools on earth are LOVE LAWS. 

Do you love yourself? If you love yourself then it will be easy to love your neighbors. (For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church Ephesians 5:29)

Never get to a point where you have people you don’t talk to or dislike. Stop living in pride. Stop choosing who to greet or love even if there are people that are unlovable. Loving your own neighbor is to your advantage not them. Runaway from transferring aggression. Wish people well. Matthew 6:38-48. Be part of making things happen in the house of God and in the things of God. Do to others the way you want them to do to you. (And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them. Luke 6:31) Pray for your enemies. It pays to love and you’ll not regret it. 

Don’t trouble yourself by walking in bitterness. Start walking in true love. Don’t bring competition with others even in your prayers (Matthew 5:38-48). Walk in Love even as your Father in Heaven does.


There's no root of hatred in me, 
There's no guile in me,
There's no bitterness in me,
I live a free life,
Therefore my spirit is free,
I am growing spiritually,
And I am healthy in the name of Jesus,
I am a love man because I have the love of God inside of me,
I love everyone as Christ loves the church,
I live in love,
I talk in love,
I walk in love in the name of Jesus,
I am in love in Jesus Name,
I will not allow the devil to have anything with me,
My life is clean and washed by the blood,
And that blood carries the love of Heaven in the inside of me,
Therefore I can boldly say the love of God is shared abroad in my heart by the HolyGhost in the name of Jesus,
I am of the tribe of God,
Therefore in all I do and say is love,
Love is my motivation,
Love is my fountain,
Love is my resolve,
Love is my life
