In church on Sunday, the pastor said that most Christians don't get too excited about the law - the books of Moses - but that the Psalms are filled with songs of love for the law of the Lord. God's law should be a joy to the Christian because Jesus has freed us from slavery to sin (Romans 6:1-2) and the Spirit of God works in us to enable us to serve him without fear in holiness and righteousness (Luke 1:74-75). Reading the law, we can see more of God's glory and more of God's mercy to us in Messiah.
For me, though, I often think of commandments and sin in vague terms. I find it difficult to repent, because I don't see God or myself clearly enough to discern what is good and what is evil. So I decided to try a new exercise.
Each day, I plan to take a mitzvah - a commandment - as my mitzvah for the day. My goal is to consider this commandment throughout the day so as to see God more clearly, see sin more clearly, rejoice in God's righteousness, rejoice in His mercy, repent of my sins, and praise Jesus the Savior King. May God help me - that through this exercise I would grow in holiness, humility, and joy and reflect Him more and more.
