Something Greater

We no longer live by the rules of the sabbath (see my old post), because something (someone) greater is here, Jesus! He is the temple, He is the sabbath, we are His body and we are a kingdom of priests!

He said to them, “Have you not read what David did when he was hungry, and those who were with him: how he entered the house of God and ate the bread of the Presence, which it was not lawful for him to eat nor for those who were with him, but only for the priests? Or have you not read in the Law how on the Sabbath the priests in the temple profane the Sabbath and are guiltless? I tell you, something greater than the temple is here. And if you had known what this means, ‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice, ’ you would not have condemned the guiltless. For the Son of Man is lord of the Sabbath.”
-Matthew 12:3-8

I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.
