Today on Karl and Crew Mornings, the team begins a week of raising the bar. In Matthew 5, Jesus continually raises the bar for those who follow Him. Today we look at how He raised the bar for anger. The law says not to murder which may seem pretty easy for most people. Yet, Jesus tells us that not reconciling our anger with someone is just as bad as murdering. So why does Jesus raise the bar? He raises it so we are positive we cannot do life on our own power. We will fail at these bar raises so many times, but it is only the grace of Jesus that will get us over that bar.
Start your day with spiritual encouragement, fresh conversation, and the power of prayer. Join Karl and Crew weekdays from 5 to 9 a.m. Moody Radio in Chicago.
