Jesus clearly says hearing and acting on His word is building your house, your life, on the rock of God. Hearing and not acting is building on a foundation of sand. Our study of the Sermon on the Mount closes as we consider the clear choice Jesus places before us.

What are the different areas that elders and preachers have to take responsibility for? In this study, we see how elders are to care primarily for the members and the preacher primarily for the teaching.
In this lesson, we briefly examine the great plan of God for our salvation. We find it to be wonderful, merciful and gracious towards those who do not deserve it because of His love for us, His creation.
Jesus taught by doing. At the last supper, he did the job the apostles surely thought themselves too good to do. They were not. He was not. We are not. In this lesson, we learn to serve with love from a place of both confidence and humility.
Jesus taught a very simple, yet profoundly important, lesson -- you will be judged by your fruit. What you do, not just what you wanted or intended to do is how you will be judged.
What are elders to take heed to? What are preachers told to take heed to? Both are admonished by the apostle Paul to first take heed to themselves. From there, the admonitions are different. Study with us how and why.

John's audience, like we are today, was being overwhelmed by know-it-alls. These arrogant folks mistreated others and denied basic tenets of the gospel based on godless philosophies and reasons.

Many religious leaders of Jesus' day gave charity, said prayers and fasted in a way to make sure everybody knew about it and gave them proper credit for it. But doing things to burnish your reputation and show yourself off while during religious duties were not the way of God.
Matthew 7, verses 1-12, can be summed up as living with a generous spirit, just as God does for us. The teaching about this kind of life concludes with the “Golden Rule.” The golden rule can never be followed, can never really be applied to our lives, while we give off a judgmental attitude to those around us.
