The Sermon on the Mount is practical Christianity. With one critical teaching after another, Jesus cuts through centuries of tradition, laws, and culture to reveal a picture of life in God’s kingdom. He overturns outward formalism and impossible religious codes, speaking directly to the heart of the gathered crowd. His path is different than anything they have seen or imagined.
Even today, the Sermon feels countercultural. The world system favors the powerful, the proud, and the self-serving. But Jesus blesses the meek—the peacemakers that hunger for His righteousness. If we, by his grace, walk the path shown here, we become salt and light in a world of decay and darkness. Jesus calls us to hear his words, do good, and reflect the Father's glory.
