Fulfilling The Law Perfectly

A  Topical  Study

            In a sermon addressed to His disciples, Jesus explained God's requirements for keeping the Law and He set the bar so incredibly high that one can't help but wonder if the goal is even possible. Jesus said that "their righteousness must exceed the righteousness of the Pharisees" and they must "be perfect just as their Father in Heaven is perfect." How could any of us possibly fulfill those requirements? Fortunately for all of us, Jesus also began this lecture by personally claiming responsibility for fulfilling the Law on our behalf and said, "I did not come to destroy the law, but to fulfill. For truly I tell you, till heaven and earth pass away, not one jot or one tittle shall pass from the law till all be fulfilled."

Persecuted For Righteousness Sake

A  Topical  Study

            When Satan's minions attack someone who is a follower of Christ, or someone who is advancing God's agenda against the agenda of darkness, they never admit it. They camouflage their persecution under deceptive accusations against your character. How many of you know what it feels like to be falsely accused of something egregious? How many of you know what it feels like to be excluded, hated and reviled for reasons that don't exist? If so, you're in good company. Jesus was accused of being a bastard, a false prophet, a drunk, a psychopath and demon-possessed. If it happened to him, it will happen to you on some level. Jesus said that when it does, REJOICE, for GREAT is your reward in Heaven.
