Sermon on the Mount: Conclusion

Sermon on the Mount

When Jesus had finished these words, the crowds were amazed at His teaching; for He was teaching them as one having authority, and not as their scribes” (Matthew 7:28-29).

When Jesus finished speaking, the people knew that there was something different about Him. He taught with authority. They could tell that His message was one to which they should listen. The same is true today – we must also listen to Jesus’ message and do what He instructed.

Sermon on the Mount (Part 6): A Different Life

Sermon on the Mount (Part 6): A Different Life

In this sixth and final lesson, we are going to look at how the life of a disciple is a different life. Our lives are filled with choices that we need to make. These choices reflect who we are. As Jesus’ disciples, we are to make choices in line with His will. This will invariably make us different from the world. In the end, these choices come down to deciding between what is right and what is wrong. We must be different by choosing what is right. Furthermore, we must be willing to be different for the sake of what is right.

Sermon on the Mount (Part 5): A Just Life

Sermon on the Mount (Part 5): A Just Life

In this lesson, we are going to consider how the life of a disciple is a just life. The word just means to be fair. As we will see, this does not mean that we treat everyone the same. This may sound surprising, but misunderstanding this about “justice” is common. Politically it is seen in systems like socialism. Culturally it is seen in the acceptance of sins like homosexuality. Jesus was not advocating some sort of “social justice” or instructing us to be tolerant of sin and error. Instead, He taught that we should be just in our lives. This passage explains what that means.

Sermon on the Mount (Part 4): A Focused Life

Sermon on the Mount (Part 4): A Focused Life

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus described the life of a disciple as a focused life. The Lord does not expect His people to drift aimlessly through life. We are to live with focus and determination. However, we must also be careful about what we choose as the object of our focus. It is possible for us to focus on the wrong things. In the verses we will consider, Jesus explained what a disciple is and is not to pursue in this focused life.

Sermon on the Mount (Part 3): A Sincere Life

Sermon on the Mount (Part 3): A Sincere Life

As we continue our study, we will consider how the life of a disciple is a sincere life. Though the word sincere is not used in the verses we will examine, it is certainly the concept under consideration. One who is sincere is one who says what he genuinely feels or believes and is not dishonest or hypocritical. A disciple of Christ cannot be a hypocrite. Our outward actions must be in harmony with our inward thoughts and motivations. The Pharisees were known for their hypocrisy (Matthew 23:2, 13) and Jesus said our righteousness must exceed theirs (Matthew 5:20). As He explained in these verses, the life of a disciple must be a sincere life.

Sermon on the Mount (Part 2): A Righteous Life

Sermon on the Mount (Part 2): A Righteous Life

After describing the life of a disciple as blessed, Jesus directed His message to a discussion of righteousness. He touched on this in the Beatitudes (Matthew 5:6). As we noticed in the previous lesson, to be righteous is to be right by God’s standard, not man’s. The verses we will consider here expand on that idea. We can see from Jesus’ words that the life of a disciple is a righteous life.
