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."
