Just because we are forgiven doesn’t mean we despise God’s holy Law, but we strive to keep it all the more because Christ kept it for us.

Scripture: Matthew 5:17-20

ESV Text: Matthew 5:17-20


KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 5

     17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 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.(KJV)

8. Grant that our days, while life shall last, 
In purest holiness be passed, 
Be Thou our Strength and Tower. 
From sinful lust and vanity 
And from dead works set Thou us free 
In every evil hour. 
Keep Thou Pure now 
From offenses Heart and senses; 
Blessed Spirit! 
Let us heavenly life inherit.
