“May We Not Abolish Christ’s Fulfilled Law in Us by Following His Feet of Obedience 愿我们透过跟随基督听从的脚踪，不去廢除祂在我们里面完成的律法“（Matthew 马太福音 5:17-18）
Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfil them. For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.
Lord Jesus came to free God’s word from the way the Pharisees and Scribes had wrongly interpreted it. He had authority apart from Moses’ Law, but not in contradiction to it except adding to it His perfect obedience. This is certainly one way He came to fulfil the law. He reminds us that not only the ideas of God’s word but also the words themselves (even their letters) are important, emphasizing how highly God regards His word. ‘Until everything is accomplished’ truly implies the assurance that Jesus Himself fulfilled the law itself and in us by His perfect obedience as well as God’s plan will never be set aside until all things are fulfilled at the end of the age.
Prayer: God the Most High, strictly speaking, it is not such limitations as illiteracy, disability, etc. but such sinful nature as self-centeredness, pride, etc. that would lead us to regard lowly or even ignore your words. Thank you for the example of our Lord Jesus who has embodied the whole law in His own life of fully man on earth demonstrating through His complete obedience a nature which was perfectly conformed to your law of freedom. May we have the necessary willingness in stepping forward to follow His feet at any cost. Amen.
