When a Christian genuinely loves others, he fulfills all the moral requirements of the former Mosaic law concerning them.  This is the ruling principle of Christian freedom.

Immeasurable blessings

IMG_8637

The recipients of divine grace inherit immeasurable blessings in addition to eternal life and the favor of God.  But those who despise the riches of God’s goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering (Romans 2:4), burying them in the ground and clinging instead to the paltry and transient goods of this world, will ultimately lose everything they have.

Incorruptible beauty

IMG_8626

Here is a beauty that never decays, as the outward body does.  “Gentle” is actually “meek or humble” and “quiet” describes the character of her (a wife’s) action and reaction to her husband and life in general.  Such is precious not only to her husband,  but also to God.
