Psalm 119:126

Establishing The Law
By Pastor Dr. Ronnie W. Wolfe

Since man has done injustice to the law of God, has shunned it and broken it, hated it and made a disgrace of it; it is time for God to do his work. His work is to do righteousness in the world both in his blessing with mercy and judging in his righteousness court.

The law of God was perfectly fulfilled, or worked, in the coming of the Messiah, Jesus Christ, to bring righteousness to the world. He is our righteousness (Jeremiah 23:6); he is the righteousness judge (2 Timothy 4:8), and he imputes righteousness to believers (2 Corinthians 5:21), who have no righteousness of their own but must receive it from God in Christ, who is King of Righteousness (Hebrews 7:2).

Men have "made void thy law" by breaking every whit and whim of it, but by faith we do not make void the law, but we establish it (Romans 3:31).
