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 – 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.
