Happy Thursday! It's a brisk 58° in Roopville and guess what - tomorrow is Friday! You can make it!
Last night, we continued our work through the Sermon on the Mount where Jesus has sat with his disciples to teach what it looks like to be a citizen of the Kingdom of Heaven. Last night we saw how Jesus transforms our hearts and our lives by doing what we ourselves couldn't do! We also saw that God care about our hearts! The OT is often seen as a focus on doing right things, but Jesus helps us see that even then the focus was on the heart. In this section Jesus also paints a picture that our lives prove our hearts. Only you and God know the condition of our hearts. Your actions, though, proves your heart. Jesus get's super practical as he challenges his disciples, and all followers after, to not be angry but rather forgive, to not lust but rather kill sin, to not divorce but rather be faithful, to not make promises we can't keep but to keep our word, to not retaliate or hate but rather to serve and love. Needless to say, it was a packed night and a good night!
