“Love On The Sabbath” ( Romans 13:8, HCSB ) by Carley Evans

We speak of Jesus fulfilling the Law because He obeys His Father in Heaven in all things. When He picks the heads off the standing grain so as to feed His hungry disciples, He says the Sabbath is made for the Lord, not the Lord for the Sabbath. When He heals on the Sabbath, He rhetorically asks whether it is right to do good on the Lord’s Day or evil — implying that doing nothing for others just because it is the Lord’s Day is tantamount to evil. Paul sums it up in one beautiful statement:

“The one who loves another has fulfilled the law.”
