Jesus continued teaching on the mountain (38):
The spirit that God wants reflected to the world by your life is revealed in the law of Moses and the teachings of the prophets.
Take these things seriously. Consider carefully their relevance for your life.
Live in obedience to them.
Don’t just give them lip-service, like the teachers of the law and the Pharisees.
In order to live as God’s child, you must be faithful to the essential spirit of God’s word as recorded in the inspired scriptures.
(38) Matthew 5:17-20
