The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like [Moses] from among your own brothers. You must listen to him.—Deuteronomy 18:15
Jesus is everything to the Christian Faith. Without Jesus, we would have nothing to put our Faith in. We would not have salvation. We would be just a mere speck in the world.
There are over 300 predictions of Jesus in the Old Testement. This is just one of them. God promised it to the Jews and also promised it to us. This Prophet that is talked about is Jesus.
Jesus came and taught us God’s truth and he lived out the Gospel. He has taught us by example and has led us by his own actions. He teaches us through His abiding presence and through the Holy Spirit.
We are covered by God’s grace and are forgiven by the blood of Jesus. The righteousness that Christ earned is imputed to us. God loves us and we are saved. So why do we follow the teachings of Jesus?
What He teaches becomes more effective when we live by what He has taught us and what He continues to teach us. This is the fundamental basics of living a Christian life.
