The scripture references below go with today’s post of A Nonchurchgoer’s Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom.
Matthew 5:20 (The scribes and the Pharisees were the most religious people of their day – the most outwardly righteous. But outward righteousness is not good enough. God wants love that permeates the heart.)
Romans 10:4 (Christ is the end of the law for righteousness because He Himself is the new standard. In the past, Jews had measured themselves against the Law of Moses. From that time forward, all measurement was to be against the Son of God.)
