February 14 Life-Changing Moments With God

Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.… I delight to do Your will, O my God, and Your law is within my heart.

Jesus did not come to destroy the Law or the Prophets. He did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, Jesus said, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. You, Lord, are well pleased for Your righteousness’ sake; You exalt the law and make it honorable. Unless my righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, I will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.

What the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, You, Lord God, did by sending Your own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of my sin: Jesus condemned sin in the flesh, that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.

Lord Jesus, thank You for coming to fulfill the Law so that Your righteousness might be mine.
