Judges 17:6..“In those days there was no king in Israel. Everyone did what was right in his own eyes.”

1 John 4:4..“The One who is in you is greater than the one who is
in the world.”

Matthew 5:17-20..“Don’t assume that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For I assure you: Until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or one stroke of a letter will pass from the law until all things are accomplished. Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commands and teaches people to do so will be called least in the kingdom of heaven. But whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I tell you, unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven”

Sermon In A Sentence: Don’t miss the kingdom of heaven by assuming that God is okay with your own standard of righteousness.

Jesus Taught That, Depending On Your Relationship To Scripture:
-You may be called least in the Kingdom of Heaven
-You may be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven
-You may not be allowed to enter the Kingdom of Heaven

Hebrews 10:25..“Do not forsake the assembling of yourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhort one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.”
