words from the hill

Matthew 5–7


In his first appearance, Jesus’ mission was to reconcile all people to God the Father. He accomplished this by dying sacrificially for our sins and resurrecting gloriously to give spiritual life to those who receive God’s free gift of grace. As a result, we are transferred from the kingdom of darkness to God’s kingdom, and so we must learn how to live as citizens of heaven.


Jesus taught primarily in parables that, to many, amounted to riddles, but in what is known as the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus spelled out quite clearly what living in his Kingdom looks like—both for his glory and our ultimate satisfaction.
