Matthew 5-7 contains some of the most famous portions of the New Testament, perhaps even the Bible. It records one of Jesus’ sermons that took place on the northeast shore of the Sea of Galilee that has come to be known as the Sermon on the Mount. These important words of Jesus reveal the counter-cultural nature and character of the kingdom of God and are meant to help us live as citizens of God’s kingdom now, under His gracious rule, even while we yet remain in the kingdom of the world. Through it, Jesus reveals the way to true life, joy, and blessing!

The sermon series begins with the Beatitudes where we are reminded that the characteristics stated therein are a result of our faith in Jesus and continue to grow in our relationship with him; rather than earning grace by being moral or good. Jesus then proceeds with several clarifications of the Law, getting past surface obedience to the heart of the matter. In the center of the sermon, Jesus revolutionizes how we understand and approach prayer through “The Lord’s Prayer” and closes by talking about who or what we are living for, the foundation of our lives, and the roads they lead to.
