Best Sermon Ever
Feb. 19 – Apr. 2
You can’t understand how good Michael Jordan was if you’ve never watched a video of him playing. You can’t comprehend the commanding stage presence of Taylor Swift if you’ve never sat in the crowd. You can’t appreciate the world-shaking message of Jesus if you’ve never studied his most audacious sermon.
Once upon a time, a Jewish rabbi stood on the side of a mountain, projected his voice to a multitude of people gathered beneath him, and delivered a sermon that changed the course of human history. In one brief sermon, Jesus taught about subjects as wide-ranging as prayer, justice, care for the needy, handling the religious law, fasting, judging other people, salvation, and much more. If we believe Jesus was inviting people into the best life possible, it’s worth studying the way he described how that life should look.
