The Law of Love is Like the Law of Gravity:
You expect the "Law of Gravity" to operate all the time. Its the nature of gravity! The same is true of the Law of Love found in Jesus Christ. You expect Christ to love simply because that's His nature! And since you possess that same nature, you should expect yourself to love as He loves. Its your new nature! See Romans 5:5 and 1 John 4:19.
