The Sermon on the Mount


“Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, and he began to teach them.” —Matthew 5:1-2

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus addresses prayer, marriage, and the narrow gate. He describes the eternal impact of loving our enemies and giving to the needy. Jesus uses his words to paint a picture and set a standard for what living as we’re called to be ought to look like. We see a glimmer of the Kingdom we were created for.

And in that glimmer, we not only see just how far from the mark we are, but also the blameless Savior who fulfills every law on our behalf because we can’t on our own.

Jim Keller | Herndon Campus

Jesus came to give us life— spiritual life. It’s a life that is a call to action. It’s a narrow path, it’s producing good fruit, and it’s making the one who gave us life the foundation on which we build.

Week 12

Zach Van Dyke | Herndon Campus

This passage encourages the honest asking of God in prayer— a simple, asking prayer with a loving father. The focus and revelation of the prayer points much more to God's provision than our part in asking. If we ask, seek, and knock, he will give and open.

“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?

Matthew 7:1-3

Week 10

Zach Van Dyke | Herndon Campus

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

 Matthew 6:25-26

Week 9

John Parker | Herndon Campus

God has opinions about our opinions on money. He knows that how we view money has a direct impact on the mastery and leadership of our lives, not to mention the affection of our hearts.

For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

Week 7

Jim Keller | Herndon Campus

The Lord's Prayer focuses on God as the one who furnishes our physical life, forgives our relational life and frees our spiritual life.

Week 6

Zach Van Dyke | Herndon Campus

When Jesus talks about giving, praying, and fasting in secret he is exposing our motivation. Our hearts have to be supernaturally changed in order to have righteous motivation. And that change can only happen through repentance.

Week 5

Zach Van Dyke | Herndon Campus

In Matthew chapter five, Jesus exposes how sin has affected the masculine heart in the form of lust and divorce. But, Jesus shows us true masculinity by laying down his life for us.

Week 4

Jim Keller | Herndon Campus

We are called to be peacemakers. We are called to kindness and sacrifice, allowing God to be the ultimate judge of those with whom we disagree.

Week 3

Zach Van Dyke | Herndon Campus

The Law is the Word of God. Jesus is the point of the Word of God— he came to fulfill it, not abolish it. Apart from Jesus the law condemns us, while the law in Jesus changes us.

Week 2

Zach Van Dyke | Herndon Campus

The world is dying and decaying. But Jesus calls us to be salt & light in it— light that exposes what is most real and salt that brings out what is most true.

Week 1

Kailey Newkirk | Herndon Campus

If Jesus is who he says he is, then he is the only one with the authority to say who is in God's kingdom and what those in God's kingdom do. It is our decision whether or not we accept that.
