The Sermon on the Mount is probably the most famous sermon Jesus
ever gave. The message contained within is for every person who desires
to follow Christ. The truth Jesus distributed on the mountain that day was
powerful and convicting.
The Bible tells us the life we live now is temporary, and one day all the
kingdoms of this world will pass away. We are simply passing through like
pilgrims. I imagine this life like a camping trip. We are currently living in the
temporary tents of our physical bodies, but one day our journey will be
over, and we will go home to heaven.
In the meantime, the Sermon on the Mount serves as a field guide for
out faith. This sermon teaches us how to live, what to avoid, and how to
navigate through this life by staying on the right trail that has been marked
for us by our Lord and Savior.
