Sermon on the Mount
Martyn Lloyd-Jones once said: “If only all of us were living the Sermon on the Mount, men would know that there is dynamic in the Christian gospel; they would know that this is a live thing; they would not go looking for anything else. They would say, ‘Here it is.’ And if you read the history of the Church you will find it has always been when men and women have taken this Sermon seriously and faced themselves in the light of it, that true revival has come. And when the world sees the truly Christian man, it not only feels condemned, it is drawn, it is attracted. Then let us carefully study this Sermon that claims to show what we ought to be. Let us consider it that we may see what we can be. For it not only states the demand; it points to the supply, to the source of power. God give us grace to face the Sermon on the Mount seriously and honestly and prayerfully until we become living examples of it, and exemplifiers of its glorious teaching.”
In our journey to know how we are to live in dependence on Jesus, the Sermon on the Mount provides a clear map. Throughout this series we will explore Jesus’ teaching, and find along the way what it means to live as distinct gospel people.
