More Righteous than a Pharisee: Perfect Love

November 25, 2018

Matthew 5:43-48 | |

Whom do you love most in the world?  Perhaps you gathered with them over this holiday weekend.  Whom do you love least in the world?  Perhaps you avoided them this holiday weekend.  The goal of discipleship is conformity to Christ.  Jesus not only loved his friends but his enemies.  If we only love our friends, we are like the Pharisees.  But when we love our enemies we become like our perfect Father.
