Matthew 5:17-19

17“Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets; I have come not to abolish but to fulfill. 18For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth pass away, not one letter, not one stroke of a letter, will pass from the law until all is accomplished. 19Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, will be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

          The Jews of Jesus’ day were looking for a messiah that would free them from Roman oppression, one that would lead them, that would change everything.

Today we know, that while Jesus did change things in the lives of many, His ministry was to teach the laws of God, and bring people closer to Him.

          May the Holy Spirit imprint the Commandments of God the Father on our hearts as we pray today, and also the new commandment of Christ Jesus; “Love one another as I have loved you.”
