Dovetail (Matthew 5:17-20)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “dovetail.” It seems there were many in Jesus’ time who did not believe in the work that he did. They thought that he was working on selfish ambitions or for some kind of other spiritual gain. However, Jesus never let the thoughts of others stopped him from accomplishing his mission.

"Don't misunderstand why I have come. I did not come to abolish the law of Moses or the writings of the prophets. No, I came to accomplish their purpose.”
~Matt. 5:17

Jesus was not really one to defend himself. He let the law of God do that for him. And as we see in this passage, Jesus reminds those who often misunderstood him that he was not interested in abolishing the law, but fulfilling prophecy and linking, or dovetailing the old Scriptures with what would soon become the new. My question for you is: how do you link Jesus and his teachings to your everyday life? My prayer is that you help others see why the ministry of Jesus is still relevant today. We are given both the old and new Testaments to help others see why they should also follow Christ.

Praying for you,
