Matthew 5:20 “For I say to you that unless your righteousness far surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.

            This statement by Jesus represents on the one hand a challenge to all the Pharisees who may have been eavesdropping on His moment here with His disciples, and perhaps the greatest monkey wrench ever thrown into the “works” of our own self-righteousness. Did you think that by sheer force of your will that you could ever be righteous enough for heaven? If that is the case then you have obviously never meditated on the beauty of the heavenly throne as described by the apostle John. My righteousness as Isaiah said (64:6) is “as filthy rags” (NIV).

            The point her being, in fact the point of the entire “sermon on the mount” is to drive us to our knees to seek the fullness of the Spirit of God that we might be accounted righteous before him.
