The Subtle Enemy of Simple Faith

Artwork for Simple Faith: The Sermon on the Mount—A Study of Matthew 5-7

Jesus’ grand Sermon on the Mount remains timeless in its scope. No one would ever guess that His words were spoken more than 1,900 years ago! They drip with relevance and significance. His thoughts are so beautifully woven together that the sermon is a masterpiece of logic, persuasion, and brevity. The 10 verses we’ll examine in this lesson flow very naturally out of what our Lord had just finished saying. They represent such a complete unit that little is left to be added or amplified. And talk about an up-to-date subject! No one can improve on Jesus’ instruction on worry. If we would simply do as He says, our anxiety levels would reduce to zero and our joy would know new heights.
