The Old Testament Law was fulfilled by Christ. He didn't change anything about it, He completed it. Here, Jesus stressed the essential nature of the attitude of the heart. Following the law is not simply a matter of avoiding doing wrong, it is a matter of doing right, from the heart.
The truth of Christ ruling our hearts is what truly sets us free. It is a paradox of faith. “Breaking free” is actually accomplished by submitting and kneeling before our Lord. What we break free from is ourselves!
