Christ Came to Fulfill the Law
“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. For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished.” – Matthew 5: 17-18
There are discussions as to whether Jesus, the Savior, preached about different philosophies or if we indeed preach concerning the importance of following the commandments. Through Old Testament scripture and New Testament scripture, we can see that Jesus fulfills and continues to instruct followers to follow the Ten Commandments of the LORD.
These commandments are the essence and importance of the obedience we have towards the LORD. If we follow these commandments, we are allowing the LORD to see that we have no other gods but only the True Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnipresent LORD. Jesus does not come to teach about personal salvation only, but the vital importance of following the commandments. His specific words indicate that this belief still stands to this day. We should be doers of the word and not only hearers of it.
Therefore, when we follow the commandments through discipline and faith, we are able to understand that the LORD wants our obedience to Him through the commandments. This obedience denotes a trust between the Creator and the created. A covenant and bond that cannot be separated by anything.
“For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height or depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of GOD in Christ Jesus our LORD.” – Romans 8: 38-39
