Summer on the Mount: The Blessed Life Redefined

Pastor Nate introduces this series by answering this question: “Why is the Sermon on the Mount the greatest sermon of all time?” There are five primary reasons. First, Jesus is the preacher. Second, the sermon is timeless, relevant and revolutionary. Third, it is the true measuring rod for the Church. Fourth, these words of Jesus simultaneously bring comfort and make us feel uncomfortable. Finally, this sermon is a radical call to action. In Matthew 5:1-16, Jesus begins his sermon with eight mottos, called the Beatitudes, about the “blessed” or "happy" life in the kingdom of God. Ultimately, Jesus asks, “Will you follow me?”

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.
