Apostle Grace Lubega
Matthew 23:23(KJV); Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
Our Lord and Master once vehemently rebuked the religious leaders of His day for omitting the WEIGHTIER issues of the law, judgment, mercy and faith.
When He used the language ‘WEIGHTIER’, it meant that there was more to the picture than the zealots of His day strived to observe.
There has been a polarisation in the very body of Christ along the sharp lines of the proponents of the grace and those of the law.
But all this has been because some have ignored the ultimate truth that there are indeed WEIGHTIER issues in the law.
Sadly, the spirit of religion [which Christ undoubtedly was dealing with at the time] can never allow you to have the fullness of this revelation.
For example, it is a weightier issue that the law was not made for the righteous (1 Timothy 1:9). It is a weightier issue that Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone that believes (Romans 10:4).
It is of tremendous spiritual weight that the law was only a school master that led us to Christ (Galatians 3:24).
Those under this school master are not mature in the things of the spirit. Like the scripture strongly puts it, they are but ‘babes, unskilled in the doctrine of righteousness.’ (Hebrews 5:13).
But Christ is the FULLNESS, COMPLETENESS and BENCHMARK OF MATURITY. Christ was and is a ‘Hious’, that is a mature one, never in need of a school master. It is in Him that we grow up into all things (Ephesians 4:15).
We are not in a ‘school of law.’ We graduated to the school of Christ.
When you have a full and true understanding of the law, you will have a full understanding of Christ.
FURTHER STUDY: Galatians 3:24, 1 Timothy 1:9, John 5:46-47
We are not in a ‘school of law.’ We graduated to the school of Christ. When you have a full and true understanding of the law, you will have a full understanding of Christ.
PRAYER: My loving father, I thank you for the great depths of truth in which you launch me every day. I thank you for the clarity of revelation in my spirit. The eyes of my understanding are flooded with light to see the fullness of the weightier issues of the law. I know and understand Christ in His fullest revelation and grow up into Him in all things. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
