Matthew 5:17 Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.
Jesus lived a perfect life, completely obedient life to God, and then died as a perfect man to justify us. I call it almost like a double justification, because most times Christians think Jesus redeemed us by his death on the cross, which is true, but hardly mentioned the perfect life he lived before the cross. Seriously without the perfect life he lived , there wouldn’t be any meaning on the cross! First Jesus proved himself himself to be the qualified person to go to the cross as a perfect sacrifice redemption for us, then, and only then, he could proceed to suffer the death on the cross.
So Jesus lived the prefect life to comply with the laws of God, the 10 commandments of God, and then he died as a substitute for us.
That’s what Jesus meant when he said I came not to remove the laws but to fulfill the laws. And he did. How? He obeyed every commandment of God the Father! And not only that, he proceeded as a completely obedient man, to be condemned on our behalf on the cross, so that whoever put their faith in him, is justified and therefore comply with the laws of God. That’s why we are justified and saved by God for eternal life as if we had lived a perfectly obedient life who never broke the commandments of God. Because we take on the righteousness of Jesus!! Hallelujah!! What a blessing and what a debt we owe to Jesus, that’s why at the Name of Jesus every knee shall bow, and every tongue confess Jesus is Lord! Because he is truest worthy!!
1. We are so in debt of Jesus and there is no way to live our lives as our own boss any more. He Jesus deserves everything from me and worthy is the Lamb of God who took away the sins of the world.
2. Therefore we should never look down on others no matter what economic ethnic or educational background they come from, because we ourselves were never justified by God but already doomed eternal condemnation looming, until we met Jesus who showered his love into our hearts and called us brothers and sisters and brought us into his family with God the Father. Glory and glory Jesus Christ the Lord of all and all. Amen.
