Our Only Hope Is in Christ’s Righteousness (Sermon from 2009)

Our Only Hope Is in Christ’s Righteousness (Sermon from 2009)

Today’s sermon text is taken from Matthew 5,

20 For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

God demands nothing less than perfection and holiness from you in regard to His commandments. Your only hope, then, is not in your own goodness but in the goodness of Christ, who did not come to destroy the Law and the Prophets, but to fulfill them for you. In Christ, your righteousness does indeed exceed that of the scribes and Pharisees.
