Obeying God

"I still don’t get one thing. If we are forgiven already, what’s to stop us from continuing to sin? I mean, I realize we are saved by God’s mercy and not by being good, and I realize we could never be good enough anyway, and I realize that even our goodness is tainted with sin, but still, doesn’t God want us to stop sinning?"

You’re worried that if we put too much emphasis on grace, people won’t care how they behave?

"Yes, I guess I am."

Fulfilling the Law

The apostle Paul once wrote of love as a “continuing debt” to one another, saying, “he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law.” He cited four of the Ten Commandments and then included all others, explaining that they “are summed up in this one rule: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” He said, “Love does no harm to its neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.” You can read it in Romans 13:8-10.
