Break out of the box

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said, “Unless your righteousness is better than the righteousness of the teachers of religious law and the Pharisees, you will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven.” So how can we break out of the box of law and religious rules? As Paul told the Philippians: “I didn’t want some petty, inferior brand of righteousness that comes from keeping a list of rules when I could get the robust kind that comes from trusting Christ—God’s righteousness.” Message delivered 6/14/09.
