Does God Need Commandments?

If we had not received Jesus, and if He were not now living in us, then going without laws and commandments would be scary. Foolish. But we have God Himself within. So here’s the question: Does God need laws and commandments in order to behave Himself?  Probably not. :)  No, He doesn’t.

Think about how capable God is by nature, which means without effort. He needs no outside stimulus or restraint in order to be Himself. Think about where God is right now and how connected you are with Him, and do not accept a law and commandment needing, discounted and distorted life. Not only will you be camouflaging Him from yourself and the wonder of that—God is in me!—but you will be short-circuiting your new self—your true self, which, by nature, is like Him. And that means an unnecessary frustration. A twist. A perversion. You don’t need that, right?

The life and power and grace of God do not come if you obey and get yourself right, according to the commandments. God shows up in you because He obeyed and got you right. And He is still getting you right from within—the two of you together, in harmony.

Look to Him. He is alive in you, and He doesn’t need any commandments.
