Erica the librarian bought a few new books
Jews that sing

Need an audio man Jonathan says
It is well with my soul
The Lord transforms lives
He hideth my soul
Why do people talk so much about songs when the songs speak for themselves
Broken Lives Never asked to be rich
"Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have not come to abolish these things but to fulfill them. I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth pass away not the smallest letter or stroke of a letter will pass from the law until everything takes place. For I tell you, unless your righteousness goes beyond that of the experts in the law and the Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 5:17-18, 20 NET
These were the most discouraging words from Jesus. The Old Testament was all about recording failure.
What's good news? A grandfather god with 6 commandments.
Jesus said he is not here to apologize for God's law. Jesus fulfills.
1. What's the purpose of the law? Why does Jesus raise the bar? We have all broken the law of God. Why did God make rules people can't keep? Was he having a bad day?
1 John 3.4 to miss the target is to sin whether it's a cm or km
If you miss your plane by one minute you still missed it. God is not so concerned about by how much we miss the mark.
The law is a target. Romans 3.23 everyone falls short of the glory of God.
What is the glory of God? The character of God.
John said we've seen the glory in Jesus. We saw what God was like.
Loved the kids. Sat next to an embarrassing woman.
Gentle, patient, understanding, loving, is to see God.
Understand what God is like. We were created in God's image. God is not a thief, adulterer,
The law was not arbitrary but to clarify what God's character is.
2. The effect of the law
To show us our failures. Moses was shocked at the golden calf. God was not. Romans 3.20 For no one is declared righteous before him by the works of the law, for through the law comes the knowledge of sin.
Romans 3:20 NET
Look at a woman and you commit adultery.
They were amazed at his teaching.
3. How does Jesus fulfill the law? Christ in you the hope of glory. My Spirit in you.
Hit the target in Jesus. Live the life of the Spirit.
Can we be perfect? No.
And we all, with unveiled faces reflecting the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another, which is from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
2 Corinthians 3:18 NET
We've been given a ticket to heaven and the Spirit to live in us. Restore
You are living in me.
Song In the morning when I rise to meet Him
