Jesus Preaches the Sermon on the Mount – Its teachings replace and transcend some aspects of the law of Moses – All are commanded to be perfect like their Father in Heaven.
There is so much in Matthew 5 that you could study it for weeks and never find all that is in it.
3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Notice in the first 12 verses, the progression that is there. Notice where it starts and then in verse 12 where it ends. As you read those verses ask yourself if that verse describe you?
As you think about sharing the Gospel consider 13-16, the best way to share the Gospel is by living it, that type of preaching is so much louder than words. If you find this uplifting to you please share it with your friends
