Fulfilled

In Matthew 5:17, Jesus makes clear that he came not to destroy the Law, but to fulfill it. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus teaches his disciples what a "fulfilled" life looks like in practice. In this sermon series, we will be looking at key teachings from Jesus' Sermon on the Mount, seeking to understand how Jesus' words apply to our lives today.

NEXT STEPS

1. Think of a time when you retaliated against someone.

2. Reflect on that time. What happened?

3. Was there a way you could have not retaliated?

4. If possible and/or appropriate, reach out to that person and apologize.

StoneBridge Extras

Periodically, Pastor Jon does a podcast series entitled "StoneBridge Extras." StoneBridge Extras looks at themes or concepts from a scripture passage that couldn't make it into the sermon. This season, Pastor Jon looks not just at the Sermon on the Mount, but the issues it can raise for Jesus' disciples.
