‘All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.’ II Timothy 3:16-17
The Bible can be studied in the context of being the believer’s constitution and as with any constitution there are several laws in place to guide the effective running of the territory. The thing about laws is that they are universally applicable and have the same consequences either for following or breaking them. For example, the law of gravity is universal regardless of race, nationality or creed. If a baby drops an item in China it will automatically fall to the ground, likewise if an adult does the same in Liberia.
This is the same thing with the laws we have in the Bible, they are applicable to all mankind and the outcome of being consistent in following or breaking a spiritual law is almost always predictable. Almost always because there are times a superior law can be applied to counter an existing law. For example, the law of aerodynamics is superior to the law of gravity in keeping things in the air rather than have them automatically drop to the ground.
Are there spiritual laws we are breaking that are keeping us bound? If we reflect on our lives has it been relatively predictable or haphazard and inconsistent? Do we know what laws to apply per time and per situation or are we mixing things up?
This series we are looking at some of the laws in the Bible and how following or breaking them can significantly alter the trajectory of our destiny. Click Here to download the study.
