03 January A.D. 2021 Matthew 5:17-20 – Morning (Rev. Michael Grasso)

Some say that because the gospel is gracious and offers forgiveness from sins this means the law no longer plays a role in the Christian life.  Does the gospel nullify the law?  This was a common charge against Christ and those who followed him, namely, that what they preached undermined following Moses.  Jesus addresses this issue in Matthew 5:17-20 and shows that, far from undermining the law, Jesus in the gospel gives the law its full significance and shows that it is still applicable to the life of the believer.
