God’s Law Reflects His Mind and Character

His character is summed up in 1 John 4:8 1 John 4:8He that loves not knows not God; for God is love.
American King James Version×
: “God is love.” And 1 John 5:3 1 John 5:3For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
American King James Version×
tells us, “This is the love of God, that we keep His commandments.” Furthermore, God and His law share the same characteristics. We might say that His law, as summarized in the Ten Commandments, is His character in written form. In the same way, Jesus Christ showed God’s character, mind and nature in perfectly keeping God’s law, which is His pattern for a holy life. Just as God doesn’t change in the way He thinks and deals with people (Malachi 3:6 Malachi 3:6For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore you sons of Jacob are not consumed.
American King James Version×
), neither does His law change (Matthew 5:18 Matthew 5:18For truly I say to you, Till heaven and earth pass, one stroke or one pronunciation mark shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
American King James Version×
), because it is a reflection of God’s unchangeable character and eternal values.
