Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:20-48)
Sermon on the Mount intended to drive us to our knees and to the cross
Being a Pharisee was worthless compared to having a relationship with Jesus
IF we fail to recognize how spiritually impressive the Pharisees were - we will remain blind to
the danger of becoming like them. - Larry Osborne.
Good things can have a dark side
Dark Side of Spiritual Passion: Our passion can drown out our compassion
Forsaken: Abandoned, departed, left
Love (Agape): Has nothing to do with feelings and everything to do with actions
Passion. Perseverance. Doctrinal purity
If you lost your compassion for others - you have lost everything
1 Corinthians 13
1 Corinthians 13:2 but do not have love, I am nothing
1 Corinthians 13:3 but do not have love, I gain nothing
Dark Side of Spiritual Passion: God’s grace only available to the deserving
Haughty eyes: Looking down on others
God’s grace available to all
Accidental Pharisee: More concerned about raising the bar and less concerned about making Jesus attractive
Jesus wants us to pursue and love and forgive
Grace and mercy must remain front and center
