A Better Hope
Hebrews 7:19 (KJB) For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God.
The intention of the law of God is for pointing to sin. It did nothing to perfect a sinner.
What is new today? The bringing of a better hope forever changed the life of every repentant sinner, but what exactly is that better hope?
I hope you know that Jesus Christ is the better hope. You see, He came to this earth as an infant and grew up here as a young boy and matured into a young man who fulfilled the will of God for His life.
Not only that, but Jesus Christ was still God in Spirit as He appeared on earth as a man. Wrap that precious truth around your head and heart! He was a part of the Godhead and at the same time living as a human on this earth to bring humanity a better hope.
Jesus Christ did fulfill the will of His Father, God, with a shed-blood sacrificial death upon the cross at Calvary. His substitutionary death abolished the bite of sin and death for all who believe, and He fulfilled the law of God.
Because Jesus Christ came to this earth to satisfy the Law of God and to perfect sinners, every soul can choose to place faith in God by drawing near to Him and away from sin and death.
