Jesus told his disciples…

“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to cancel them, but to fulfill them.”

With a new teacher, director, or headmaster, questions and expectations are always associated with what he will keep from the old, what he will cancel or change, and whether it is in our favor. Perhaps Jesus could read similar expectations in the hearts of his disciples. Yes, in many ways, it was new, unconventional, perhaps even revolutionary, and yet, as far as God’s law is concerned, it did not destroy anything but complemented it.

Until heaven and earth pass away, not one letter or one title will pass from the Law until all is fulfilled.

There are many things in motion in the world, there are many unstable things, there must be something solid, certain, on which you can always lean, in every uncertainty, in every hesitation. God’s word is fulfilled in time, regardless of whether we accept it or not, whether we accept it whole, undiluted, or interpret it our way, with many theories that usually end with little or no commitment. The Lord Jesus in Nazareth confirmed the part of Scripture from the prophet Isaiah: “Today, the Scripture that you just heard has been fulfilled.” I wish we could notice something similar in our lives more often and be personally involved.

Therefore, whoever breaks one of these commandments, even the smallest one, and thus teaches people will be the least in the kingdom of heaven.

God’s word cannot be arbitrarily adapted according to one’s taste or dislike or the majority’s opinion. Not even according to those whom we love so much, but they do not know how to live according to God’s word, and we will not make them enemies because of it… In life, there are many opportunities to discount the requirements of God’s word, yet only a sincere effort as much as possible to adapt leads to the holiness of life.

But he who keeps them and teaches in this way will be great in the kingdom of heaven.

We have relatively enough teachers, but fewer are witnesses of what they teach. However, having teachers of God’s life who are also his witnesses is crucial. It is impossible to become such without a constant effort to remain a humble disciple of our Lord.
