A fulfilled life

12 01 2013

And Elijah appeared to them with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus. Then Peter answered and said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good for us to be here; and let us make three tabernacles: one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah” — because he did not know what to say, for they were greatly afraid. And a cloud came and overshadowed them; and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is My beloved Son. Hear Him!” Suddenly, when they had looked around, they saw no one anymore, but only Jesus with themselves.
Mark 9:4-8

In this passage, we see Elijah and Moses in the presence of Jesus Christ. It is a picture ofJesus as the fulfillment of biblical prophecy. You see, Elijah represents the prophets and Moses represents the law. And here they are, both finding the glory of God in the presence of the Only Begotten Son. Jesus, Himself, said, “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill” (Matthew 5:17).

You can find encouragement in the law and the prophets. But the only true glory in life — and in eternity — is being found in the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ. True joy, fulfillment, and peace in your life come when you have a relationship with Him. Paul said, “For me to live is Christ but to die is gain” (Philippians 1:21). This is a two-fold promise. Living every day withJesus is such a blessing. And knowing that when we die we will be with Him, face-to-face, for eternity is even better! So until we are with Him for eternity, we keep serving Him.

Jesus fulfilled everything in the law and everything in the prophets. And Jesus can surely fulfill everything in your life when you surrender it to Him.
