Matthew – the Gospel of Fulfillment – Chapter 5 Think You’re Good Enough?
This is a great chapter in Matthew’s Gospel – lots to discuss and react to. But the 48 verses in this chapter can be summed up by 2 of the verses:
Verse 20 “For I say to you, that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes of and Pharisees, you shall not enter the kingdom.”
Verse 48 “Therefore you are to be perfect and you heavenly Father is perfect.”
here’s no way I can please God or become holy and perfect by my own efforts. But God loves us so much He provided a way to Him – Jesus.
