Untangling legalese

I did not come to abolish God’s law or the law of Moses, but to accomplish their purpose. I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not even the smallest detail of God’s law will disappear until its purpose is accomplished. Matt. 5:17-18

Jesus spoke these words regarding Himself and not us. Not one of us is capable of obeying every small detail of the law, nor are we capable of accomplishing God’s purposes. Rather than binding ourselves to the law and becoming try-hards who keep failing at keeping the law, we can be bound to Christ who succeeds for us.

Lord, I am grateful.
