We have looked through a lot of eyes in the past 6 weeks. Watching people meet Jesus, see afresh His love, marvel at His ability to heal, be confused, and offer praise. I hope this has been a time of epiphany and discovery, or seeing through different eyes how Jesus manifests and reveals the Father to those around Him.
The next two weeks, before we start into the book of John during Lent, we are going to work through the Sermon on the Mount. I picture Jesus standing up to talk and share His vision for life done right. To share principles and values that reflect His kingdom, a very different kingdom than the one we inhabit here on earth.
We are going to use the Know, Be, Do method of study to work through these verses. I want to encourage you to really sit in these verses, soak them in and imagine life lived differently.
And because Jesus is teaching about His kingdom, where His will happens – we learn a lot about Him, who He is, and what He values. Be on the lookout for more epiphany.
Read Matthew 5:1-12
KNOW (what does the text say about God?)
BE (What does the text say about us?)
DO (what is the text calling me to do?)
Take time today to think through those questions from this passage.
