I pray that God’s Word does not become rare in our culture . However, regardless of how prevalent or scarce it may be, God’s Word is always precious. It is always invaluable. In my opinion, His Word should always be precious to believers who have staked their eternal futures on its veracity and faithfulness. It is precious!" (Emphasis added)

Right now, we are studying The Sermon on the Mount and we may stay with this teaching for the next three months. In this study, as the Life Application Bible states that there are four ways to understand the Beatitudes, which comprises verses 5:3-12:
As one reference, we are using Sermon on the Mount by Vincent Cheung. It is included below: you may download it and study along with us. Another resource is John Stott's book, same title. Here is the link: As you study this portion of Matthew's gospel as well as the rest of the book, pay attention to Christ's intolerance to sin. And this intolerance is also noted in the other gospels as well as the epistles. And by the way, it should also be noted that this intolerance is seen in the Old Testament, beginning with Lucifer (Isaiah 14:12-17). To receive the blessings we deserve, we must follow Christ no matter what the cost, even persecution! Ouch! Question: Is Christ's teaching a direct contradiction of society's (non-Christians) typical way of life? Is a direct contradiction of the way of your own way of life? Are you the salt of the earth? What influence do you have on people? Do people see the Light in you?
