Sermon Overview

Date: May 5th, 2019
Speaker: Pastor Michael Larrabee
Location: Full Gospel Mission Stanley-Boyd, WI
Series: The Gospel
Scripture: Matthew 5:17

Summary: We know as Christians that Jesus died and was resurrected from the dead. We spend a great deal of time, as we should, talking about how Jesus gave His life for us in His death of the cross. But another great truth is that Jesus did not only die for us, Jesus lived for us.

The Law prohibts evil, but it also demands righteousness. We fall short not only in that we do what should not do, but we also so not do what we should. Despite our best effort, us on our best day have an earned righteousness that the Bible describes as filthy rags. So Jesus lived the life we could not live and died the death we deserved, that we may stand in His place as inoccent before all, clean and pure in the eyes of the judge of all the earth.

Jesus fulfilled the Law on our behalf.
