I Came To Fulfill Not Destroy

Norman Jerome said, “Jesus is called a revolutionary by some.  But He did not come to overthrow the government or the Jewish religion.  He did come, however, to do what no one else could do – to keep the law and to fulfill it.”  Matthew 5:17.  Doing so, He became the sinner’s substitute, satisfying God’s divine justice through His shed blood.

In recent times, the United States has been given a sordid picture of slavery in pre-Civil War days.  The auctions and whippings are painful to recall.  Occasionally the sun rays of mercy would shine through the awful gloom of human bondage.  In one instance a good man bought a beautiful slave girl to save her from the evil designs of other bidders.  The girl was taken to her new masters home and told she would be free as soon as the proper papers could be processed.  In that same home that girl was trained, and later a paying job was found for her.

The law was fulfilled.  Where (slavery) had abounded, grace (purchase price) did much more abound. All were born slaves to sin, but whosoever will may be set free through Him who paid the full redemption price.
