The Law of God is Perfect, Precise, and Provides Justification Through Faith
Galatians 3:24 (KJB) Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
A man will not desire to bloom in faith and allow God to change his life until he clearly understands what is wrong in his heart from that which God considers being right. This learning process may seem stifling and restrictive at first.
However, determining what is right and wrong by our feelings, or by being in tune to the moral code popularized in this world, is certainly not the same as understanding wrong from right by being schooled in God’s holy viewpoint. His estimation is for precisely measuring why something is to be considered wrong or absolutely considered to be right and just.
It is true that there are many good and moral people in this world who do not personally know or have the law of God at work in their heart. Still, without the inner dwelling of God, they can be good and socially pleasant people. However, making decisions solely based upon what a person feels, or believes according to their own opinion, in the end, may or may not be a right and moral choice according to the spiritual plumb line God has set in place for our learning and application.
The bottom line: making decisions based on our feelings has nothing to do with choosing to place faith in the power and presence of God. Faith placed in the foundation of our decision-making process allows God to divinely direct our pathway rather than allowing feelings and opinions of man to reign and rule our steps.
God’s law is the only thing that can bring a man or woman to an eternal understanding of God’s perfect view and assessment and in understanding WHY something is wrong or right. Knowing His Law inside a softened heart is humbly choosing to render His “plumb line of Truth,” against any circumstance or event in this world. The best part of choosing to apply God’s holy and supernatural estimation to conclude if it is correct or inappropriate is that His determinations will never change or fluctuate (Hebrews 13:8).
It is far more prudent for a person to know why he should esteem something as wrong or right by observing it from God’s eternally holy point of view rather than relying upon a defective opinion formed by mankind and found at work in a faulty decision-making process of this world. God’s holy standard will never let a man down or destroy him, for it is always spiritually precise throughout the ages.
