Matthew 5:17-20

Is God's Law still relevant? In a world that wants to do as it pleases and a
gospel that speaks to the free offer of the gospel, this is an important question for us
to consider. Through His ministry, Jesus faced critics who accused Him of discarding the Law. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus spoke to revive the true nature of
God’s Law and to challenge the legalism of his time, where religious leaders were
obsessed with external compliance yet blind to their sinful hearts. Jesus peeled
back layers of false piety, revealing a deeper call to genuinely love God and our
neighbors. This is our call today. Jesus came to fulfill God’s Law for us so we could
genuinely please God. How, then, can we truly embrace the heart of God's
commands in our lives?
