Luke 6:1-11

APPLYING THE LAW IN NEW WAYS

“Then Jesus said to them, I ask you, which is lawful on the Sabbath: to do good or to do evil, to save life or to destroy it?” Luke 6:9, NIV.

Legalistic religion promotes strict adherence to the letters of the law without necessarily paying attention to the spirit of the law. This was the position of the Pharisees in today’s passage. they appeared to be so concerned about the fulfilment of the law of the Sabbath meanwhile their motive was wrong; they only wanted to use the occasion to accuse Jesus (verse 7). Knowing their intention, Jesus went ahead to heal the man with the shriveled hand. He then challenged their interpretation of the law of the Sabbath by asking them whether it is lawful to do good or to do evil, to save life or to destroy it on the Sabbath. To this, they had no response.
Do you protect the law out of your love for God or as sheer legalism which is aimed at pulling others down? It’s amazing how the Pharisees who claimed to be upholding the law did not notice that their intention to pull Jesus down also means the breaking of the law. Obey the commandments of God from a pure heart, not from any intention of judging others or running them down.

Birthday Blessing: “If they obey and serve him, they will spend the rest of their days in prosperity and their years in contentment” Luke 36:11.
