Odusote Daniel's comment on 2014-06-05 05:12:53:

Jesus was telling us to stop believing that we can fulfil all righteousnesst by adhering to the law. But what we need is mercy of God. Therefore, Any man who breaks the law does so because they have no strenght of there own to fulfil. So, all you need is God 's Mercy. It is not sacrifice to your sin but mercy of God. Ask for it now and you recieve it.
