Jesus had some work to do. He had to clear up some things. He had to set some things straight so that his disciples would have a clear understanding of the way God wanted them to be and to live in this world. He was chiseling them and shaping them by teaching them to the truth. So Jesus will also do for us as we study his words. Matthew 5:27-30
Whenever Jesus speaks, he says something big and something for us to pay attention to. Again, he does not disappoint. As we continue our walk through this Sermon on the Mount, Jesus continues to raise the bar. So, listen carefully as Jesus calls us to action, as Jesus calls us to shine, and then proceeds to set the bar for us. Matthew 5:17-20.
