"For this One has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as He who built the house has more honor than the house."
Hebrews 3:3 NKJV
Speaking of Jesus, the writer of Hebrews paints a vivid picture of His superiority to Moses, His ministry more glorious than that of Moses. In fact, Moses is a servant but Jesus is the Son over His own house. As we know, a servant does not abide in the house forever but the Son does.
I am glad we are disciples of Jesus the Son, and not Moses the servant. The covenant of old which has Moses as mediator was just a tutor to bring the children of Israel to Christ. And now that you are in Christ, you don't need the law of Moses.
I am saddened to see many of my beloved brothers and sisters vouching for the law of Moses as a legitimate document for the new testament believer. It is not. The law is righteous, spiritual and good but we are not disciples of Moses. We are followers of Jesus.
The law of Moses kills but the Spirit of Christ gives life. The blessings of Moses' law are preconditioned on total obedience to it's dictates, but the blessings of Christ are given to us free of charge.
The righteousness of the law of Moses is credited to you when you obey all the law to the letter but the righteousness of God in Christ is imputed upon all who believe in Jesus. We are disciples of Jesus. It's a different ball game altogether.
Moses commanded that lepers should stay away from all the people including himself but Jesus touched lepers and healed them. Moses commanded to stone those caught in adultery but Jesus even now has mercy on the sinner for He is mankind's Savior.
Even the loathed Samaritans can have the dirtiest of their women who has had five husbands and living in adultery find salvation. Who do you follow? Jesus or Moses. There is no room for mixture. If you seek to be justified by the law of Moses, Christ will profit you nothing.
I am a disciple of Jesus and not Moses. I walk by faith and do not depend on the law. I receive abundance of grace in Christ Jesus. I will live and not die by staying away from the killer called law.
