What about the Law? Part 3

We have been looking at the mission of Jesus and what he has been revealing concerning our relationship to the Law. In his teaching, he is clear that the Law is our guide to healthy relationships. The Law reveals our sinful nature and that we cannot meet even the basic requirements without fault. Jesus reveals that sin starts well before actions and originate first in our thoughts, which if not dealt with takes root in our heart and manifests in words then action. Understanding this gives us opportunity to examine ourselves and mend our relationships before they are destroyed and we are left with unwanted consequences. Today, he expands that to guarding the gateway to the mind.

What About The Law? Part 2

Text: Matthew 5:21-26, 22:37-40

The whole of the law and the prophets can be summarized by one word – relationships. First with God, 2nd with our neighbors, 3rd with animals, and 4th with our environment. In our passage today, Jesus illustrates that the key to loving God and our neighbor begins in the mind long before it moves to action.

Introduction to the Sermon On The Mount

The sermon on the mount is the longest sermon of Jesus recorded in the Scripture. In it Jesus describes the traits he is looking for in His followers. These traits are direct contradictions to the cultural norms and Jesus explains that to embrace them will stir up controversy and opposition. For the next several months we are going to study what Jesus is saying and striving to understand how it applies to us today.
