Musing Through Matthew- Old Garments Vs New Garments

Let us muse again today from Matthew 9:16 and the theme of Jesus the King. In our study for today we see a lesson on old garments versus new garments. Our Lord reminds the disciples about the garments of traditions, rituals, and Old Testament legalism. He says it is dangerous to try to patch up those garments with the new garments of righteousness. I feel the danger of keeping a list of dos and don’ts for the child God is more dangerous than being addicted to cocaine. It leaves you thinking no one has arisen to your level of Christianity but those who keep the rules you do. After a while you’ll look around and instead of folks looking like Christ they begin to look like you. So dangerous.
