daily scripture and thoughts

For I tell you, unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:20 HCSB)

Dear Ones- 
Unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Scribes and Pharisees you will never enter the kingdom of heaven-

What does that mean? 

Well at the time of Christ the most righteous people where the ones who read the scrolls and interpretted the scrolls which were the Scribes and Pharisees- and in that time they were the "righteous" ones  because of their wisdom, though they did not manifest the Words of The Lord in their lives or even interpretted the Word correctly. In their culture they were righteous. Though Christ called them hyprocrites because of the lack of the Word manifesting in their lives- these Words were to give us a comparison how righteousness. 

Many of us do not know what righteous is, what it looks like or how to manifest in our lives.
We seek for our leaders within the church to guide us and manifest righteousness in their lives for us to follow. The Jewish people were no different.. except that many did not read, and no one had access to the scrolls, so they totally relied on the Pharisees and Scribes to manifest the truth for them. We are able to seek out righteousness through the Word for ourselves. Most of us can read, and see for ourselves what The Lord expects of us as Children of the King of Kings.

If you desire to live righteously, if you desire to know what the narrow path looks like - open the Word of Jesus Christ and allow His teaching to guide you.

Thank you Father- that you have shown us clearly what the path to righteousness is. Thank you that you have sent us your son! Lord guide us and open our eyes to truth.

In Jesus Name
