"Laying Down the Law" Matthew 5:17-20 (Matthew: The Preaching of the King)

As we continue deeper into the Sermon on the Mount Jesus broaches a new topic: The Law and its place in the Kingdom of Heaven. When you consider the concept of God’s Law, what is your response? Security? Frustration? Confusion? Despair? As we ponder the words of the text for this week it is my hope that we’ll see the beauty of the Law that has been laid for us as a foundation and likewise see the aspects of the Law that can be laid aside in light of who Jesus is and what He has done.
