Reading: Matthew 5: 1-12, 38-48
Title: Sermon on the Mount Series: God’s People and God’s Ethics
Synopsis: A lot of ink has been put on paper related to the Sermon on the Mount. That being said it would make sense that we would want to spend considerable time with it in the next several weeks. We will be talking about this famous message of Jesus both in worship and in Sunday Seminars starting next week. By way of introduction, this morning we will reflect on how the sermon calls for his people to be identified by their character more than their culture and how Jesus call for a certain ethical framework for his people to operate with and in.
