The Sermon on the Mount contains some of Jesus's most powerful and penetrating words in the Gospels. The words Jesus spoke within the Sermon confront us in numerous ways and challenge the status quo we often settle for in our faith. Jesus leaves no stone unturned, challenging all who claim to follow him to evaluate what it means to live in faithful obedience. As you read, you will find yourself challenged and encouraged to live as a citizen of Christ's kingdom.
Each page within this book is an invitation for you to dive deeply into the message of the Sermon and allow yourself to be confronted by Jesus's words. Moving through the devotional, you will explore each verse individually, allowing time to dwell on the depth each verse deserves. However, you will explore each verse as it relates to the broader themes and movements of the entire Sermon, providing a comprehensive picture as well. As you go through this devotional, may you be challenged and encouraged by the words of Christ, creating in you a desire to heed Christ's invitation to follow him.
