Righteousness

“Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets; I have come not to abolish but to fulfill. For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth pass away, not one letter, not one stroke of a letter, will pass from the law until all is accomplished.Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, will be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven” (vv. 17-20).

Foolish Galatians

In verses 1-9, Paul reminds the Galatian church that Abraham’s belief was credited to him as righteousness.

He emphasizes the fact that it is faith, not hard work, that prompts God’s blessings.
