The truth is that God loves us and that’s enough for us.

Truth is not just being factually correct, but also helpful. Helpful truth matters more than random facts.

“For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.” (John 1:17)

The law was no lie, but it couldn’t set men free from their sins.

Grace and Truth set men free from their sins and keep them free and give them new life.
That’s why keeping our eyes on Jesus is much more valuable than keeping our eyes on Moses.

Even Moses said to keep our eyes on Jesus.

“The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your fellow Israelites. You must listen to him.” (Deuteronomy 18:15)

“Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, whom we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest. He was faithful to the one who appointed him, just as Moses was faithful in all God’s house. Jesus has been found worthy of greater honor than Moses, just as the builder of a house has greater honor than the house itself. For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything. “Moses was faithful as a servant in all God’s house,” bearing witness to what would be spoken by God in the future. But Christ is faithful as the Son over God’s house. And we are his house, if indeed we hold firmly to our confidence and the hope in which we glory.” (Hebrews 3:1-6)

“So He said to the Jews who had believed Him, “If you continue in My word, you are truly My disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:31-32).

The law given through Moses is no lie, but it’s not the truth. The truth is that God loves us and that’s enough for us.
