References: Matthew 5Jesus’ message seemed anti-Law, so Jesus stated emphatically both here and with His whole life that He did not come to abolish the Law. But nor did He come to leave it untouched. He came to fulfill it, which brought about some changes. There are weightier matters of the Law and shadow parts of the Law, and Jesus fulfilled each part in different ways. He fulfilled the shadow laws in ways that make them still valid and still applicable but not binding; and He fulfilled the weightier matters in a way that they are still binding on us today.
It is not enough to learn true things about God.
It is not even enough to experience the benefits of His attributes. We must not be satisfied until our experience of each attribute has been profound enough to move our soul toward deeper love for God.
We must keep learning and experiencing what is so wonderful about each attribute until there is a response in our affections -sparks of actual joy, peace, delight, awe, fear of God, security, satisfaction of soul, comfort, courage, and all the other benefits
Scripture promises will come from the nearness of God’s favorable presence. Each one of God’s attributes is a single ray in the spectrum of the brilliant radiance of His glory. That glory is an ocean, and just one drop of that ocean, if you could just see it clearly, would be enough to delight your soul and occupy your faculties of praise for all eternity.
This book is a journal of how God has been opening my eyes the past few years to begin to see a glimpse of that drop.
