Which laws do we meditate on today? The Ten Commandments? The Mosaic Law at its whole?
The Mosaic law ministers condemnation:
"But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away:" (2 Corinthians 3: 7)
Today, we are no longer under law, but rather under grace.
"For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace." (Romans 6:14)
The writer of Hebrews explains:
"For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:
11And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.
12For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.
13In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away." (Hebrews 8: 10-13)
The law which operates in our lives today is the law of the spirit of life:
"For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death." (Romans 8: 2)
There are new laws written into our hearts:
"And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment." (1 John 3:23)
John also reveals the loving heart of our Father:
"Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth." (3 John 2)
This prosperity comes from meditating, walking, and identifying with the truth of God's grace in our lives.
