Mt 5: 17-19

“Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets; I have come not to abolish but to fulfill. For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth pass away, not one letter, not one stroke of a letter, will pass from the law until all is accomplished.

Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, will be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

The Kingdom comes through Jesus

We pursue the Kingdom of God following God’s commandments and teachings. However, in spite of our best intentions, we often fall short and at times can be very hypocritical self-righteous human beings. There are those who will dwell on these human hypocrisies insisting that we should abolish our laws and civic institutions entirely, saying that it is all absurd and we cannot trust any of it. Instead of abolishing the law, Jesus tells us that through him, it can be fulfilled and we can be redeemed. For only Jesus knows our hearts and inner desires. So instead of focusing on ourselves and our weaknesses, let us depend on our God to restore our faith and renew our spirit. For with Christ’s love, The Kingdom of God can be realized through us if we choose to rely on him.

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and enkindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created and you shall renew the face of the earth.
