This sermon answers the question: “Who is worthy to enter God’s kingdom and go to heaven?” I know a lot of people in the world do not consider this question RELEVANT as of the PRESENT, but whether we like it or not, IT IS GOING to be RELEVANT!
Every year we celebrate our birthday, we are a YEAR CLOSER to our DEATH DAY and whether we like it or not, WE WILL HAVE to answer this question one day. If we do not even attempt to answer this question, we will regret it FOR THE REST of ETERNITY.
I would like to share two things to you today as it relates to the passage on hand:
I. The RIGHTEOUSNESS that is INADEQUATE
1. The inadequacy of the Pharisees’ righteousness (Gold standard of the Jews)
2. The inadequacy of all other righteousness (less or equal to the righteousness of the Scribes and Pharisees)
II. The RIGHTEOUSNESS that is ADEQUATE
Praise God that God’s STAMP of APPROVAL marks Jesus Christ and praise God that He IMPUTES it upon those who place their TRUST in CHRIST!
For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes in Him will not be disappointed.”
