"Jesus is The Point"Stuart JonesArrows, an extended arm, a nod of the head, a sign, a compass, a GPS, MapQuest—all are methods of pointing us in some direction. We depend on these methods to find where a person lives or to find our way to an unknown neighborhood or city. We are fortunate that all they require is a correct address and the ability to follow directions. However, in the past, poorly drafted maps hindered people in finding the right destination. In Biblical times people were also hindered, even burdened, by what they had to follow—the law. While the teachers of the law made it difficult to find what someone was searching for—a Savior—the solution was simple. Those who taught the law didn’t use it to point people in the right direction because they either didn’t know or didn’t recognize one important thing—Jesus is the point of the law. Because of that one point, we are twice blessed. Today we aren’t weighed down by the law and are assured in God’s Word that a life with Him will not be a burden. We are reassured of this with Jesus’ words in Matthew 11:28-30, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
