Matthew 5:17
"Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them." ESV 
Jesus stated that He came to complete the Law in living form. The only thing that His life destroyed was Satan's works. The Law speaks of the outward man's obedience to God. Jesus' life and teachings demonstrated how the Law must first live in the inner heart. He taught us that we could practice all the rules successfully in our behaviors, while our inner spiritual lives were dead. If the fulfilled Law that Jesus Christ brought us by life, death, and resurrection lives within us, we will by that nature be living it on the outside.
Heavenly Father, we give You praise for sending Your only Son to show us the fullness of how our lives should be. Forgive us for being spiritually lazy, and merely doing the outward things that others expect or that make us look spiritual. Help us examine our hearts and open them to the fulfillment of living the life in our spirit. Then our outer lives will be genuine reflections of the new spiritual nature inside us. In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen.
