Christ Fulfills the Law

“Christ fulfills the Law”
Matthew 5:17-18 in a couplet
Wednesday of the Tenth Week in Ordinary Time
©️2021 by Gloria M. Chang

Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have come not to abolish but to fulfill. Amen, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or the smallest part of a letter will pass from the law, until all things have taken place.

Matthew 5:17-18

    “Spiritual eyes open slowly and gradually, over centuries and generations, as humanity crawls from babyhood to adulthood as one man.” (From your related post)
    May the lenses of our spiritual eyes be cleaned by the Holy Spirit. Then we will see life as God sees.

    Dear GMC, thank you for your reflection. Wisdom begets wisdom. I thought you might be interested in Father Bill Murphy’s, CP suggestion for reverencing the law: “Psalm 119, the longest psalm praises God’s law. Each of its 176 verses contain the word ‘law’ or a word that means law, for example: statute, decree, revelation, ordinance, command, promise, and more. Read the psalm by substituting the word ‘love’ in each of the verses for the ‘law’ word, the psalm becomes a meditation on law as an act of God’s love for us.”

    Good insight, fdan. Law and Love are interchangeable in the Biblical world. Law is the mind of God.
