Read Mt 5.13-20 – “For I say to you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.” Another shocking statement from Jesus! Later in His discourse He would says something that sounds even more preposterous! “Be perfect as your Father in heaven is perfect.” (Mt 5.48) What?! Impossible!!! That is, unless you understand the Great Exchange; “He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” (2 Cor 5.21). Jesus made our “Mission Impossible” possible through His substitutionary death on the cross. Are we resting in His righteousness to free us up to be more like Him?
