God loving people justified


“Hear, O, Israel. Jehovah our God [is] one Jehovah. And you shall love Jehovah your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words which I command you this day shall be in your heart. And you shall carefully teach them to your sons, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise up. And you shall bind them for a sign upon your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.” (De 6:4-8 MKJV)

 “If you fulfill the royal Law according to the Scripture, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself," you do well. But if you have respect to persons, you commit sin and are convicted by the Law as transgressors. For whoever shall keep the whole Law and yet offend in one [point], he is guilty of all.” (Jas 2:8-10 MKJV)

 “You shall do no unrighteousness in judgment. You shall not respect the person of the poor, nor honor the person of the mighty; [but] you shall judge your neighbor in righteousness.” (Le 19:15 MKJV)

 “For all the Law is fulfilled in one word, [even] in this, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” (Ga 5:14 MKJV)

 “Bear one another’s burdens, and so you will fulfill the Law of Christ.” (Ga 6:2 MKJV)

 “Master, which [is] the great commandment in the Law? Jesus said to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second [is] like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” (Mt 22:36-40 MKJV)

 “And coming up one of the scribes heard them reasoning, knowing that He had answered them well, he asked Him, Which is [the] first commandment of all? And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments [is], "Hear, O Israel, [the] Lord our God is one Lord; and you shall love [the] Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength." This [is] the first commandment. And [the] second [is] like this: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.” (Mr 12:28-31 MKJV)

 “Therefore be it known to you, men, brothers, that through this One the forgiveness of sins is announced to you. And by Him all who believe are justified from all things, from which you could not be justified by the Law of Moses.” (Ac 13:38-39 MKJV)

 “For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am carnal, sold under sin.” (Ro 7:14 MKJV)

 “[Is it] not to break your bread to the hungry, and that you should bring home the wandering poor? When will you see the naked and cover him; and you will not hide yourself from your own flesh?” (Isa 58:7 MKJV)

 “Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit in you, whom you have of God? And you are not your own,” (1Co 6:19 MKJV)

 “This [is] My rest forever; here I will dwell; for I have desired it.” (Ps 132:14 MKJV)
