The Sermon on the Mount begins with Jesus giving a list of characteristics possessed by those whom God considers to be “blessed”. I say that God is the One who considers these to be blessed because most people wouldn’t.

“Blessed are the poor in spirit.”
“Blessed are those who mourn.”
“Blessed are the meek.”

To most of us the opposite is true, it’s the rich, the joyful, and the powerful that are rightly considered blessed. Jesus is describing a group of people to avoid. “You’ll never reach your full potential if you get too tangled up with those poor whiney mourners!”

I hope everyone will be able to join me this Sunday for, “Blessed Are They Who Mourn”.

A few more highlights from the sermon on the mount:

Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward

And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites…they have received their reward

And when you fast, do not look gloomy like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces that their fasting may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward.”

Clearly, Jesus is teaching that heavenly rewards are for those who do the right things - in the right way! 
Would that be an accurate assessment of the message of the New Testament? 
Should there be a new Christian catchphrase? #justdoitright 

Please join me this Sunday at DCC for “Sermon on the Mount IV”.

”Those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son.”

The desire to be more like Jesus is something that all Christians experience but few ever feel like they are achieving. By this time shouldn’t I at least be getting close? Is it possible that I am not trying hard enough? Is God as frustrated with my failures as I am? What if my next train-wreck is the last straw for Him?

Unless we remember that justification precedes sanctification and that both are the work of God in and for us - the Sermon on the Mount can leave true believers feeling hopelessly discouraged.

 I hope you will all join me for more on this in The Sermon on the Mount - Part III
