And seeing the large crowd, He went up into the mountain: and after He sat down, His disciples came to Him. And He opened His mouth and taught them. And it came to pass when Jesus concluded these teachings, the people were amazed at His doctrine.
Jesus said, "If you love me, you will keep my commandments." In these three chapters, Jesus gave us His commandments. The Apostle Paul referred to these commandments as the Law of Christ. Most professing Christians today have been taught that since we are not under the Law of Moses, we are free to "work out our own salvation." We have thrown out the proverbial baby with the bath water.
While it is true that us non Jewish believers were never under the Law of Moses, Jesus did not leave us lawless. In 1 John 2:3-6, the Apostle John had this to say, "And by this we know that we know Him, if we obey His commandments. He that says, "I know Him", and does not obey His commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him."
In the book, "The Sermon on the Mount: The Believer's Handbook", brother David Broom takes us back to the basics of Christianity and shows us the great teachings of Jesus, the same teachings that left the crowd present at that time "amazed." Learn why untold numbers of professing Christian's are on the broad road to destruction, while only a few are on the rough road that leads to the narrow gate.
After reading this book, the one thing you will walk away with is this, "If we love Jesus, we keep His commandments", and "If we do not keep His commandments, as presented in His teachings in His Sermon on the Mount, we are not saved." Are you truly saved?
