“So that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit” (Romans 8:4).

Jesus did not come to abolish the Law but to fulfill it (Mt.5:17). As a result, and because we walk according to the Spirit, we can now fulfill the requirement of the Law, a Law that sees its full fruition in the statement, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself” (Gal.5:14). While the religious faction is preoccupied with the letter of the law, the dotting of every “i” and the crossing of every “t,” the faithful followers of Christ are occupied by the spirit of the law, fleshed out incarnationally at the intersections of human engagement.
