God’s Law

by admin ~ April 6th, 2019. Filed under: Brandenburg.

There is an absolute basis for truth, law, morals, and right and wrong and that is the law of the eternally sovereign God. God laid down His absolute, eternal, abiding law and made it known to humanity. And as God’s own Son, Jesus declared unequivocally that He did not come to teach or practice anything contrary to that law even in the slightest way, but to uphold it entirely. He said, “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil” (Matthew 5:17). Jesus had a high regard for the law at the same time as teaching completely contrary to the traditions. His teachings did not lower scriptural standards but upheld them in every way. He not only elevated God’s standard to the height it belonged, but also lived at that humanly impossible level. Jesus Christ came to accomplish every aspect and every dimension of the divinely authored Word. We know how hard it is for us to maintain holy attitudes and behaviors, so we can marvel at the Lord Jesus Christ, who endured every temptation to maintain His perfect purity on earth. As important as any consequence of what Jesus said in Matthew 5:17 is that such supernatural righteousness has been imputed to us through justification.
