The Old Is Found In The New

27 Apr

We are coming up to our annual anniversary break but we will leave you with a few thoughts. The first from psalms one. We recommend you read it carefully for the OT does apply to the Christian life, especially in this day and age. Jesus never overturned a word that God taught his people in the OT.

One example of this is one of the 10 commandments– thou shalt have no other god before me

Jesus taught us to -love God with all of our hearts souls and minds

The two passages teach the exact same thing. Do not think that the OT is not for the believer in the NT age. It is and it carries very important instructions for our spiritual health

How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
Nor stand in the [a]path of sinners,
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!
But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
He will be like a tree firmly planted by [b]streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season
And its [c]leaf does not wither;
And [d]in whatever he does, he prospers.

The wicked are not so,
But they are like chaff which the wind drives away.
Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
Nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
For the Lord [e]knows the way of the righteous,
But the way of the wicked will perish.

These are wise words for the modern Christian. We find the law of the Lord throughout the NT, so we cannot afford to overlook what the OT is teaching us.There are other examples which we may bring to your attention after our break
