Be Ye Therefore Perfect

Be Ye Therefore Perfect

41 min | Matthew 5:48

Be ye therefore perfect,
even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Matthew 5:48

Comment: There is so much confusion over our “law-keeping” and our good works (“God-wrought” or otherwise). Brother Potts delivers a blessed sermon that refutes the errors and distinguishes “law-keeping” (as men interpret it) from true, Gospel obedience. The former is legal and carnal despite the objections that many make… whereas the latter is Christ-centered and based upon both what our Lord has already done and our eternal vital union with Him. When the focus is on law-keeping because “well, we have to keep the law,” we miss the boat. When the focus is on Christ and Him alone, we affirm that we already have His perfect righteousness and that this righteousness will manifest itself in our Christian walk without our having to make an idol out of our deeds and doings.
