The Sermon on the Mount: Life in God's Kingdom
Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5–7 is beloved by Christians and admired by many in society. Yet its teaching is remarkably difficult—anger is equated with murder, lust with adultery, and hardest of all, we are commanded to “be perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect.” Jesus teaches with such authority that the crowds are amazed.
Thankfully, Jesus is not setting the bar for how we enter his kingdom; rather, he is describing life in the kingdom so that we can learn to faithfully follow him. The sermon is primarily addressed to disciples, those who acknowledge their need for God’s grace, share in kingdom life, know him as Father and practice spiritual disciplines. More than declaring laws, King Jesus’ commands explain how disciples ought to live under his authority, since he has arrived and begun to reign. Of course, we will fail at meeting his standard. But as God’s children, through our growing obedience ‘we give evidence of what, by God’s free grace and gift, we already are’ (John Stott).
This sermon series runs from April 21 through August 18
