Sermon on the Mount
The teachings of Jesus reveal something much greater than we constantly hear from the world. Jesus shows us ways we can withstand the pressures of life and change our perspective on what a good life looks like. But what is he offering us? How can we put it into practice?
Jesus’ teaching in the Sermon on the Mount turned the wisdom of the world upside down and showed us a better way of living that only exists when we put our trust in him. This radical new way is dedicated to God and free from hypocrisy and judgment.
