Jesus' message to us - the Sermon on the Mount - is about one thing: what it means to live a just, right, and good life - a life of faith. At the conclusion of His message to us, Jesus warns us that it is not easy to follow Him and pursue righteousness.

Matthew 7:12-29

One of the most popular verses in the Bible is Jesus’ command to not judge in Matthew 7. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most misunderstood. Should we never judge the beliefs and behaviors of others or is there something else going on here? And what should we do when we’re tempted to be critical?

Matthew 7:1-6

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus teaches us why we shouldn’t worry, what to do when we worry, and what to do with our worries. According to Jesus, there is good news for those of us who struggle with worry and anxiety.

Matthew 6:25-34

Prayer is not a show we put on proving how religious or righteous we are. Nor is prayer a means by which we cajole God into doing what we want. Prayer is simple submission to God as our heavenly Father.

Matthew 6:5-14, 7:7-11

In the sermon on the mount, Jesus has strong words for the way money competes for our attention and affection. How should the Christian relate to money and what kind of attitude marks out Christian giving?

Matthew 6:1-4, 19-24

This week we welcome Karol Joseph, a friend and missionary with Jews for Jesus. As the Sermon on the Mount continues, we look at 'turning the other cheek': the importance of saving relationships rather than winning the fight.

Matthew 5:38-48

After speaking about marriage, adultery, and divorce, it seems out of place for Jesus to focus on commands that have to do with truth telling. But just as fundamental to a life that is just, right, and good is the need to speak simply, honestly and straightforwardly. When we say yes, mean yes; and when we say no, mean no.

Matthew 5:33-37

Jesus takes great exception to the casual approach to marriage and divorce in Israel. He roots the meaning and significance of marriage back to God's original intent in Genesis 1-2, that a man and woman are to come together and unite as one in marriage and in life.

Matthew 5:31-32

A look at Jesus' high view of sex, keeping right desires in the right places, and guarding our dignity and humanity.

It's hard to find people who are pro murder, and often we feel very good about ourselves for being people who avoid unnecessary killing. In the sermon on the mount, Jesus comes along and asks us some difficult questions about whether or not we have become too comfortable with the very kind of anger that leads to violence.

Matthew 5:21-26
