How refreshing it must have been for those original hearers of Jesus. They listened anxiously to words that could set them free from the very things that held them captive. Jesus spoke and they could tell that He offered what no man could; a path to a relationship with God, not just more religion. With many of the same challenges that we struggle with , they needed relief just like we do. His words would lead them towards what everyone needs - Forgiveness from God. It is good to be right with people, but it is critical to be right with God. Starting today, we invite you to see faith the Jesus way, as we examine the Sermon on the Mount.
