Reviling, Rejoicing, and Your Reward
Merry Christmas! We are currently walking through one of the most famous portions of the New Testament, perhaps even the Bible, Matthew 5-7. 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. They 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. rough it, Jesus reveals the way to true life, joy, and blessing.
