Matthew 23

The rebuke of Christ to the Pharisees is applicable to those who have lost from the heart their first love. The solemn assembly for worship, the round of religious ceremonies, the external humiliation, the imposed sacrifice, all proclaim that the doer considers himself as righteous, but it is a deception. Works will not buy for us an entrance into heaven. The one great offering that has been made is ample for all who will believe.
Blessings to all.
