In Matthew 6 Jesus continues to emphasize to the Jewish crowd that merely DOING the law of Moses isn’t enough. You must also WANT TO do it from you heart. In The Lord’s Prayer Jesus points out the “things” that are lacking in the Old Covenant, but that are fully supplied in the New. Instead of a life of empty prayers, the Church should be declaring that the promise of life has been fulfilled!

Believer, you are pleasing to God. Doubting this in any way can only be attributed to the tragic misrepresentation of the true Gospel. By placing your trust in Jesus to make you perfectly righteous and absolutely holy you have met God’s exacting requirements for perfection! Now you can finally cease from the vain pursuit of righteousness by the flesh, and instead enjoy the reward of righteousness by faith!
