In a world of loud messages, it’s easy to ignore Jesus’ words.
Being a follower of Jesus has never been easy, there is always a cost.
We are called to take the words and commands of Jesus seriously. In the gospel of Matthew, we read the account of the Sermon on the Mount, which gives clear instruction about how we are to live and love in this world.
As Christians, we are to submit to the authority of Jesus, who ultimately has our best interests at heart. His authority is unprecedented, and there is no comparison to any other ‘experts’ who may seek to guide us.
Written within the beatitudes, are not just commands or suggestions, but ways in which we can announce the Kingdom of God on earth.
