Taking Jesus at His Word

There’s a version of Jesus in the world, that he was just the “teacher of love” – a caring, nice guy who just wanted everyone to get along, disinterested in the law. But don’t be fooled by a marketing campaign. Jesus didn’t come to loosen the law or make it more acceptable. He actually tightened it, saying, “You must be perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect” – articulating a standard we can’t possibly meet. Did Jesus really mean that? So what’s the point? Should we even try?
