Be Perfect as Your Father Is

When men will be saviors of themselves, when they look for righteousness by the law, Christ bids them go and keep the commandments…and this He does to humble them and bring them to Himself. But if men are humble and broken by a sight of their sins, then, without mention of the law at all, He comforts them with the free promises of grace, saying: “Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
