The Sermon on the Mount is Jesus’ way of exposing the deep, innate longing that all people have a desire for a “RIGHT-NESS” that is totally and completely out of their reach.

To make His point, Jesus showcases the reality that God’s standards are far higher than most people realize and human disobedience is far more extensive than anyone could have ever imagined. In His desire to set sinners free, Jesus exposes the totality and inflexibility of God’s Law, so that we might finally come to grips with our true condition and fully receive the free gift of grace that is extended to us through the finished work of Jesus.

Jesus' famous words spoken in The Sermon on the Mount are intended by God to kill us, so that we can finally and fully be made alive!
