Sermons on Faithfulness

Unless Your Righteousness Exceeds the Pharisees’

Matthew 5:20 If we are not to relax even the least of the commandments, then what about the fourth commandment? Are we guilty of this? I mean if our righteousness is to exceed the Pharisees and the scribes righteousness, didn’t they take the Sabbath really seriously? What does this mean?

Abraham Believed God and was Counted Righteous

Galatians 3:6-9. Paul moves on in his defense of justification by faith alone to an example from the scriptures, the ultimate example of Abraham himself. The Jews believed that in order to be a child of God, one must first become a child of Abraham, and that required circumcision. Paul shows this to be in error and a wrong understanding of scripture by examining Abraham’s life. Feel free to like and share our content!

Justification Through faith

Galatians 2:16 How can a man be right before the Lord? Paul rebukes Peter for falling back into thinking that adherence to the ceremonial law somehow justifies him before the Lord, and in one of the clearest statements in the New Testament, Paul stresses that justification is not in any way by works of the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ.
