Matthew 5:20-26

Our salvation does not come from obeying laws. Out salvation comes from Jesus Christ whose whole life was a life of love. Our outer conduct like that of the scribes and the Pharisees is worthless. What is needed is that we become poor in spirit and acknowledge that we are imperfect and that we are sinners. Our holiness must flow from our love for one another. The salvation of the world came about through a man who did not keep all the laws of Moses but who lifted them to a higher level and was willing to die for what he believed.
