Entrance Ramp: Finding the Kingdom (Matthew 5:17-20)

Dr. Jason Noble, October 8, 2017
Part of the The Sermon on the Mount series, preached at a English Sermons service

The ramp you choose is the road you get, and not all roads lead to surpassing righteousness. Some people think you get to righteousness by doing all the right things. But, the righteousness Jesus expects his followers to pursue is a righteousness that surpasses doing all the right things.

Matthew 5:17-20

17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished. 19 Therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. (ESV)
