Today's sermon was titled "Beyond The Letter Of The Law" and was based on Matthew 5:17-20. Here are a few points to take away from the message.
1. Jesus didn’t come to abolish God’s laws but to fulfill them that is to complete them. (Matthew 5:17)
2. Because of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross he has atoned, or paid the price, for all our sins. (Hebrews 7:26-27) yet we still need to be obedient to all the ethical laws God has laid out.
3. Jesus taught us we need to not just follow the letter of the law, such as with the Ten Commandments, but to surpass them and we do that through love. (Matthew 22:37-40)
