God’s laws are descriptive not just prescriptive

Many of God’s laws and wise instructions are not only prescriptive but descriptive. It’s not just trying to tell you what to do, it’s God describing to you how his creation is designed to work.

You can shout Grace Grace all day, but if you jump off that cliff the law of gravity is going to mess your life up. Many of God’s laws of wisdom work exactly the same way. You cannot disrespect the instructions of your Creator and expect not to have any consequences. Obedience maximizes your potential.

The Good news is that the mercy of God can save us, and the grace of God makes us eager to learn His ways. It doesn’t give us confidence to ignore His ways.

Read Psalms 19
