Under A New Law

Source unknown

Dr. Mitchell was impressing upon us that we are not under the Law when we're in Christ, but we're under a new law&md;the law of LOVE. He used this to illustrate:

In America there is a law stating a woman must take care of her child. So, a man comes to a new mother's home. He says "Are you taking care of your baby? The Law says you have to." The woman, tenderly holding her baby, said, "I don't need a law to make me take care of my baby." Why? Because she loves her baby! She feeds him, holds him, changes him because she loves him. I no longer need the Law because I'm under Christ&md;a law of LOVE.
