    Everything 2: Go Further

    Everything 2: Go Further

    Everything 2: Go Further - Matthew 5:17-20
    If Jesus were to sit in on one of our family dinners or spend a day with us at work, would he find something uncanny about our Christianity – something that’s just off enough to make him question whether it’s true?
    Is there a chance that we’ve lowered our standards to make us feel better? How far is the life Jesus described in the Sermon on the Mount really asking us to go?
