We are currently looking at the teaching of Jesus in what is called ‘The Sermon on the Mount’ from Matthew 5 to Matthew 7. It is probably the best-known part of Jesus’ teaching, though arguably it is the least understood and obeyed.
So what does it mean to seek first the kingdom in our relationships, values, ambitions, finances, and commitment to God? Jesus’ answers amazed those who first heard the Sermon on the Mount and still challenges us today.
We are looking at some of the key teachings of Paul as he writes to a church in Rome in his first-century world that still has great relevance to us all living in the 21st century.
In the first-century Roman Empire, Paul’s letter to the Romans was a bold and dangerous manifesto. He wrote to followers of Jesus living in the capital of the empire, confessing allegiance to Christ over Caesar. Announcing better news than the military victories of Rome, Paul explained how the resurrected Son of God had conquered death. For the life that will never end, he offered access to a new identity in Christ; freedom from the failures of rule-based living, and a way of living forever in the Spirit and love of God.
