Why Jesus – Day 19
The religious leaders started noticing that Jesus was breaking some of the Levitical laws. All of those things would make Him unclean according to the law of Moses. He did not break the laws, but fulfilled them. He touched the the woman who was bleeding and healed her. He fulfilled the law for us and for the world.
Jesus has fulfilled the Law, so now we can achieve the first and second commandments of loving God and loving others through the holiness we have gained through Jesus Christ.
Today the law is lifted from us. Between the law and love, we can choose love. We are the righteousness of God in Jesus Christ.
Jesus said, “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.” Matthew 5:17 ESV
