Summer on the Mount: Love Redefined

In Matthew 5:38-48, Jesus redefines what true love is all about. A life marked by radical love - not self interest - is the essence of what it looks like to be a Christian. The PATH of radical love is proactive, showing love in the face of hate and injustice. The PRACTICE of radical love begins with understanding that we too were enemies (of God). This enables the Christ-follower to seek restoration, practice hospitality and pray for our enemies. The PURPOSE of radical love is to model God's love, showing we are properly related to our heavenly father.

From Series: "Summer on the Mount"

In this most famous sermon of all time, we will learn what life looks like when lived according to the Kingdom of Jesus Christ. We will also learn just how just how revolutionary Jesus' teaching was and still is in our culture today. Jesus sets a high bar when it comes to topics like judging others, lust, marriage, false religion, money and how we treat others. While we will never live up to the holy standards set forth in this sermon, Jesus practiced what He preached, fulfilling these standards in our place. Jesus now calls us to live as members of His kingdom so that the world sees Him.
