KEY SCRIPTURE: James 1:25 “But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed”.
A law is a standard regulation that controls or rules a people’s actions. It is also a principle that would operate and function in its line of operation when the required conditions or parameters are available.
God’s word is a perfect law of liberty, so long as men obey its dictates. As a law it is supposed to rule our lives. From our key scripture, it is called the perfect law of liberty. The word of. God is the perfect law that would liberate men from all that enslaves them.
The bible is fill with so much amazing promises of a blessed life, when one heeds to the instructions of the word of God. Let’s just look at a short passage in Proverbs 3:1–6.The following are the blessings

Life indeed is very miserable if led outside the influence of God’s word. Since the fall of man in the Garden of Eden, men have pursued an agenda of anti-God or simply to oppose the way of God. Unfortunately they have consistently failed. The result has been anguish, mental torment, (Rom 2:9) War, diseases, (Rom 1:18–28) and what have you?
Men claim they are, wise and civilised, yet they accept homosexuality, lesbianism, bestiality and incest. God’s word is more relevant today than tomorrow’s newspaper.
Let the word of God rule your life. And experience an abundance of peace. Note this, TO BE REALLY HUMAN YOU MUST BE RULED BY THE WORD OF GOD.
When men sideline God’s word from their lives they become less humans. I have been made in God’s image and would maintain this by adhering to His word.
Romans 1:26-27 ” For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet”.
Proverbs 4:10-11 ” Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many. I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths”.
