Matthew 5:17 (KJV)
Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

Before Zara believed, she was still very young and innocent. She had a great sense of self-righteousness and didn’t feel she needed God. But as she beheld the righteousness of God as given by Christ in Matthew 5:17-48, she knew no human being could attain such standards by his own power. She knew she needed the grace of the Lord Jesus.

Being under grace (and not being under the law) means a believer does not trust in his ability to keep God’s law as the reason why he is saved, he rather trusts in the grace of God (through Christ Jesus) as the reason why he is saved. But this does not mean he is now without law: he is under the law of Christ (see 1 Cor 9:21).

Those who trust in their ability to keep God’s law as their ticket for salvation trust in themselves. But those who trust in God’s grace do not trust in themselves but in God (Prov 3:5). God now works in them to do His good pleasure (see Phil 2:13).

When you are born again, the same unchangeable God who wrote His laws on the tablets of stones (Deut 9:10) now lives within you and writes His laws on the tablets of your heart (see Heb 10:16). He administers His kingdom (government) within you (Luke 17:21) and empowers you to do His good pleasure.

Christ is the end of the law for those who believe (Rom 10:4). 'End' here does not mean He is the termination of the law, but it means He is the fulfillment of the law. Only those who abide in Him (and He in them) will fulfill the law of God (see Rom 8:4). When 1Peter 1:9 says ‘receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls’, it does not mean receiving the termination of your faith, it means receiving the fulfillment or the final result of your faith.
Go intot today asking the Lord to help you abide in Him.
-SD Abraham
