"But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law." ESV
The law is a set of rules that govern a community or group of people so that order is maintained and the rights of people are not violated. Why do we need laws? Because the human default mode is to do what seems the most profitable for the self. We can see what results this has on our world. Being governed by the Spirit is an attitude of the heart committed to obeying God. In doing so, by His nature, we will be doing those things that are good and right, orderly and respectful, pleasing to the Lord. If we allow the Spirit to lead us, there is no need to worry about breaking any of man's laws.
Heavenly Father, how we pray for the indwelling of Your Holy Spirit so we can stop doing things our own way and begin to walk in the Spirit. Forgive us for the problems we have caused by living under the direction of our human natures. Help us to continually walk in Your Spirit, living the law of Love. We pray in Jesus' name, Amen.
