Laws Broken
“Have Consequences”

“We must obey God rather than men.”

Acts 5:29

There are three types of laws in the world:

Physical Law (like gravity and motion),
Legal Law (by authorities such as police or government)
Spiritual Law (defined by God.)

Regardless of the type of law, the purpose of all laws is to give a clear understanding of how things work and to keep us safe, however we can decide to not obey any law at any time! And this is where the consequence may enter in.

For example, if someone jumps off a cliff, the law of graity would be applied to a painful end. The consequence here would be immediate.

A driver breaking traffic law by driving recklessly as intoxicated or running a red light could hurt you or others, and there would be legal and possibly physical consequences. If the person at fault were to escape the scene, the consequence here may be delayed.

Spiritual Law is the most important of the three laws, but sadly is all too often shown the smallest respect. Why? Because unlike Physical or Legal Law, these types of transgressions can and often are hidden in secret or within the mind and heart. As a result, it is easy to think that since “no one is looking” that there is no consequence because if you are not caught, then 'logically'where is the crime? But the Bible tells us clearly that there is a consequence for all of our actions, whether they are done in public or in secret...

“For we must all appear before
the judgment seat of Christ; that every one
may receive the things done in his body,
according to that he hath done,
whether it be good or bad.”

2 Corinthians 5:10

My friend, do not make the mistake that if you do something in secret or do not get caught that you are “safe!!” There is a Day of Judgement and everything “Hidden in Secret” will be clearly known (Mark 4:22) and that consequence will be certain and conclusive! Therefore run towards and obey God and not ourselves because “True safety is in the LORD.” (Proverbs 18:10)
