Passage: Matthew 5:20 & 2 Corinthians 5:21

Except Your Righteousness Be Perfect

For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven

(Matthew 5:20)

Beloved, it is by the doing and dying of Christ that we are saved. Indeed, through the death of His sin atoning blood and the life of His perfect righteousness as our substitute, we are and SHALL BE SAVED. (Matthew 1:21)

It is not enough that you have your sins forgiven, in fact you must be made the perfect righteousness of God! Through Christ, through His perfect life as a man, our Heavenly Father made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him (2 Corinthians 5:21).

All the Scribes, all the Popes, all the Buddhas, Mohamed and all who follow them—all need a righteousness that exceeds their own to go to heaven; they need the perfect righteousness of Christ.

Reader, God give you grace to hear and believe His Son, for without His righteousness, no one comes to the Father, as our Lord plainly tells us “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).

Beloved, it is by the doing and dying of the Lord Jesus Christ that we are saved—for if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of His Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by His life [Romans 5:10].

To you who believe; rest with us, for we have received double of the Lord’s hand! Not only do we have a full and complete pardon of all our sins; much more beloved, He has removed our iniquity from us and clothed us with His perfect life; indeed His perfect righteousness. AMEN! (Genesis 3:21; Isaiah 40:1-2, 54:17; 1 Corinthians 1:30)
