Our preaching team is pleased to announce we are launching a 5-month message series on the most famous sermon JESUS ever gave, the Sermon on the Mount. In Matthew 5:1-2, the Bible says, “Now when He (JESUS) saw the crowds, He went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to Him, and He began to teach them….”
Concerning the Sermon on the Mount, one person said, “If we were to summarize the Sermon on the Mount in a single sentence, it would be something like this: How to live a life that is dedicated to and pleasing to GOD, free from hypocrisy, full of love and grace, full of wisdom and discernment.”
Another commentator said, “JESUS’ words are practical and concise; He was truly a master orator.”
Message topics will include the Beatitudes themselves, salt and light, fulfilling the law, anger, lust, divorce, oaths, retaliation, loving your enemies, giving to the needy, the LORD’s Prayer, fasting, laying up treasures in heaven, anxiety, judging others, prayer, the golden rule, a tree and its fruit, false salvation, building your house on the rock, and the authority of JESUS.
Concerning the Sermon on the Mount, on person said: “In the end, Jesus made it clear that His followers should live in a noticeably different way than other people because His followers should hold to a much higher standard of conduct — the standard of love and selflessness that Jesus Himself would embody when He died on the cross for our sins.”
Pray for us as we begin this message series this coming Sunday. Our Biblical text will be Matthew 5:1-7.
