The Sermon on the Mount is justly deemed one of the greatest sermons ever given, if not the greatest of all time. This sermon is inspirational and gives us a world to aspire to. But there is more to it than that as it makes us think about why the world we live in is not the way it could be.
We have been forgiven of a monstrous debt of sin against God because Christ has lifted us up and made us righteous in God’s sight. And this should result in a grateful heart — a heart that is overflowing with joy and forgiveness towards others.
