Jesus did not come to soften The Law. He did not come to abolish The Law. He came to fulfill It and give us the spiritual nature of The Law. When He says: "You have heard that it was said ........, but......". Here He explains in depth the meaning of what was said by piercing our hearts. Thou shalt not murder does not only apply to killing a fellow human being. It speaks to abortion, suicide, stay angry with one another. It speaks to ANY harm to mankind that is premeditated. We all are made in Gods image!
If you would die today, how would you know that you will enter the Kingdom of Heaven? Is it something you have done and that you trust in? Like "I am a good person" or "I am baptized" or "I go to church every Sunday". Or is it your proclamation that Jesus died on the cross for our sins, was buried in a grave and rose again on the third day. That He is alive today and that He is the Master of your life.
As God spoke the Ten Commandments, did you feel fear for God? If we are ever to be in God's presence, we have to be holy before Him. The Israelite's asked Moses to speak to them in place of God, as they knew they could not keep the commandments. Today we also fall short of keeping God's law. Trust in Jesus, as He did not come to abolish the Law, He came to fulfill it.
The Gospel in your life is the outworking of God within you. By His grace we partake in His glory. It is not what we have done, but what He has done thru us. If we walk in obedience, we will grow closer to Him. And one day all sin will end and we will be like Him.
The Gospel must be front and center in our lives in order to receive the full blessing of God in our lives. If the Gospel is not the most important thing, we do not live life the way God designed it for us. How well do we receive God's word and hold on to it in our lives?
