Surpassing Religion


In this part of the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus moves from identity statements (“You are the salt...”, “You are the light...”) to issues that the disciples and the crowd are very familiar with (“You have heard it said...”). Although the topics are familiar, they are presented to the listeners with HIGHER expectations than they have ever encountered. Let’s step up and live in this HIGHER place that Jesus is calling His disciples to.

From Series: "Higher"

We'll be looking at one of Jesus' longest sermons on record -- the Sermon on the Mount. So, yes, we'll be doing sermons on a sermon...not 5 but not 30 either! Just 10. Ten weeks of covering the multitude of topics that Jesus talks about in Matthew 5-7. If you're fine with "just getting by" in your walk with the Lord, these words of Jesus' might make you squirm a bit. He raises the bar high; higher than what the world thinks is sensible. Maybe higher than what we think is sensible. But there's life within life within life when we follow His ways! It's going to be a great series!
