Thinking About NVCC 10/23/2016

The Law of the Jewish Religion was first written by the finger of God on tablets of stone. Jesus brought to fulfillment the Law of the Jewish religion, and in so doing fulfilled all the ceremonies of the Law. Therefore, there is no need today for the Temple, priests, and sacrifices – with the exception of communion and baptism.

Jesus came into this world, and when we allow him to write, with the Finger of God, on the tablet of our heart His Law we then no longer need or want a tablet of stone, for we know when we put our self in bondage to the tablets of stone, written with the finger of God, we are in bondage to a thing depleted of its vitality, depleted of its force, and depleted of its effectiveness. Thus Paul wrote, “You are our letter, written in our hearts, known and read by all men; being manifested that you are a letter of Christ, cared for by us, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tables of stone but on tables of human hearts,” (2Cor 3:2-3).

The stone tablets of the Law have been replaced by the law written on the human hearts of men and women who have accepted God’s offer of salvation. And to those who have accepted God’s Spirit, His Spirit is making those men and women like Jesus Christ.

Make me like Him,
