Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount shows us the way to life, and it turns out it’s also the way to live. It’s not a set of rules, or ethics, to live by…it’s so much more. It’s not a path to self-improvement…it’s so much more. Jesus envisioned a new community radiating an uncommon and even impossible way of life that is both convicting and compelling. Jesus did more than envision it, He created it, and invites you to join the way.
In the last few days before he was arrested and crucified, Jesus was focused on making his disciples ready. They needed to be ready for his death, resurrection and ascension. They needed to be ready for what would happen to them after he was gone. But most of all, they needed to be ready for his return. Are you ready?
