Sunday, January 31, 2021. Matthew 5:17-20 | “You Will Never Enter.” Jesus makes a shocking statement: “You will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” You may be surprised to learn that this is not an evangelistic appeal to the lost. It is a statement to those who are called — His followers! Entrance into the kingdom of heaven is restricted to those who have a “surpassing” righteousness. What we do with what we’ve been given matters. Listen as Jesus teaches and turns a declaration of condemnation into a conditional statement, pointing us to the gospel message and the righteousness He offers.
