Description

Jesus didn’t come to abolish the law, but to fulfil every letter. The Old Testament shows us we cannot live up to the law and God’s standard, but Jesus having fulfilled the law transforms us to live like him. Righteousness means being made right with God, and this is required to enter heaven. The Pharisees thought their self-righteousness made them right with God, which Jesus rebuked them of as having false righteousness. To gain true righteousness, we must be willing to look above and not within. We must come with empty hands knowing we don’t deserve grace or forgiveness, finding righteousness in Christ’s substitutionary death on the cross.
Let’s embrace the life that we were made for: loving God and resting in Christ’s fulfilment of the law. Stop ignoring God’s commands: not because you need to be justified, but because you are a child of God. Resist the degradation of sin. Be stewards of the earth.
