Justice, Mercy, Faithfulness
The Ten Commandments In Law and Spirit
"No other God before me" loyalty
"No graven image" worship
"The Lord's name in vain" reverence
"Remember Sabbath day" holiness
"Honor your father and mother" respect authority
"Shall not kill" love
" Shall not steal" honesty
"Shall not bear false testimony" truthfulness
"Shall not covet" contentment
For all these ten commandments we are called not to just follow the rules but to abide by the Spirit of God which is loyalty, worship, reverence, holiness, respect authority, love, honesty, truthfulness, and contentment.
This law crucifies us. By beholding it, we realize we are wretched and our righteousness is like filthy rags before the Lord.
He has shown you O man what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8.
God's standards are so high. He wants a pure bride. This is how our righteousness looks to God.
We must learn to loath ourselves for what our independence is, our natural talents are, and our sinful history says about us. God wants to purify us. He wants to clean us from the mud and trash of this world and make us beautiful. He wants a pure bride- that's who He's coming back for.
So clean up daughter of the King.
You need to watch the things that you are letting into your mind and your heart. First start with the people around you. Second look at where you are spending your time. Often your treasure lies where you spend the most time. Clean out your entertainment. Cussing, gambling, selfishness- that's mud sister. Get away from your gossiping friends and your flirty, sexual show offs.
Best of all daughter, put on your princess dress: the beautiful wedding dress God has created only for YOU. He knows you inside and out so it will be beautiful. Spend time with your lover. He is waiting to spend more time with you. Finally, dance with God =)
"There is no need to make the dress question the point of your religion. There is something richer to talk about- talk of Christ! When the heart is converted everything that is out of harmony with the Word of God will stop. - E.G.W
