Ignorance of the Law is no excuse…
Posted On July 8, 2020
“I didn’t know,” says the offender, who immediately hears “Ignorance of the law is no excuse.”
The concept rings true spiritually as well; the only requirement is to love God with all of our heart, mind, soul, and strength: the first commandment.
God made it this way because all wisdom, knowledge, and understanding come from Him; He reveals His will to those who fear Him.
He chose us; but we must respond in kind by choosing Him.
Romans 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Mark 12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
James 4:8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
