Sermon on the Mount II: Towards Spiritual Maturity (Becoming Salt and Light) | Brandon Cook

Matthew 5:11-18

Brandon Cook. The Sermon on the Mount is a roadmap to life in the Kingdom of God, an invitation to be transformed. In this message, we examine Jesus’ statement that he came not to abolish but to fulfill the Law given to Israel, opening up the pathway to transformation. Using M. Scott Peck’s description of spiritual growth in four stages, we analyze Jesus’ statement to see how Jesus calls us out of mere law-keeping or performance and into a life deeply grounded in the love and generosity of God.
