SERMON ON THE MOUNT (I)


介绍

1. 今天开始,我们要学习在马太福音里耶稣的登山宝讯

2. 当耶稣在地球上时,他讲神的国将近了,人们要忏悔自己的罪

3. 在登山宝讯中,耶稣简单介绍了一下神的国和神国里人们的生活。在神国里的人是以神为中心而不是以自己为中心。神国里的人将把神视为国王。

4. 犹太文士用摩西传下来的律法严格地教训人。但是耶稣告诉人们遵守神的律法不是展示给别人你的信仰,而是要从心里遵守神的律法。

5. 世人教导人们高兴和满足是来自身体的健康。文士教导人们要想获得神的祝福只有通过遵守信仰的规条。耶稣教导人们喜悦并不可能从遵守律法或高收入高社会认知度来获得。

6. 获得喜悦和祝福的关键是要把生命与神放在一起

7. 人们应该去更深地追寻灵里的品质,包括如同情心、 耐力和谦卑。

8. 当我们把神放在我们生活中心时,我们将会成为世界的光和盐(马太 5:13-15)

盐能够调出食物的味道,盐也能够防腐 我们作为盐能够把神的味道从人生中调出来让世人知道神的爱 通过我们的见证,我们能够防止世界的不良来影响我们 在神国里的人是世界的光 – 我们要用神的话来照亮世界以至于他们看到自己的罪。通过我们,把神的光指向世人

9. 在登山宝讯中,耶稣强调他来不是为废掉律法而是成全律法。他教导人们不应该只是在外表上遵守律法,而是要从内心上去理解神的律法。耶稣希望我们去实践他的教导。

10. 他提醒我们通往神国的路是窄的,这与现在文士告诉大家神国的路是宽的相反.

11. 我们要记住耶稣来到地球上不是作为老师,他来是作为我们的救恕者。如果耶稣只是我们的老师,你会发现他的教导不可能遵守,只会让你更迷惑.

12. 耶稣不仅给我们带来了我们要遵守什么,而且他和我们生活在一起,通过他神视我们为义. >>>


INTRODUCTION

1. We begin a series of lessons today based on the teachings of Jesus found in Matthew 5 – 7 commonly called “The Sermon on the Mount”.

2. When Jesus came to earth, He announced that the Kingdom of Heaven (or the Kingdom of God) was near and that people should repent and turn from their sins. (Matthew 4:17)

3. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus gave a brief explanation of the meaning of the kingdom of God and the qualities of lives of the people who are in this kingdom. People who belong in the kingdom of God live lives that are God-centered and not self-centered. People in the kingdom of God have taken God as their king.

4. The Jewish religious leaders at that time were teaching that people should follow strictly the Laws given by Moses. Jesus, however, taught that obeying God’s law is not just a show to impress others that you are religious. Obeying God’s laws must come from the heart.

5. The world teaches that happiness and satisfaction in life is found in wealth and status. Religious leaders teach that we can only find blessings when we do our religious duties. Jesus, on the other hand, taught that happiness could not be attained by being religious (following the laws) or by being rich or by having high social status.

6. The key to true happiness and true blessedness in life is to live a life with God being at the center.

7. People should seek deeper, spiritual qualities such as compassion, endurance and humility.

8. When we allow God to be at the center of our lives and we seek deeper qualities, we will become the salt and light of the world. (Matthew 5:13-15)

Salt brings out the flavour of food. Salt is also a preservative – it prevents food from turning bad. We are to be salt of the world by bringing out the flavor of God to others so that they can “taste and see that God is good” We are also salt of the world – by our witness, we contribute in preserving and preventing our friends and family members from destruction because of their sins. People in God’s kingdom are light of the world – we shine the truth of God’s word in people’s lives so that they can see their own sin and rebellion against God. Then, by our testimony, we shine our light and point them to Jesus.

9. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus emphasized that He did not come to abolish the Law, but to fulfill it. He taught that we should not just try to be religious on the outside, but the people of the kingdom of God should be concerned about the real meaning and purpose of God’s Law. Jesus wants us to practice what He preached

10. He reminded us that the path to the kingdom of God is narrow and few will travel on it. This is in contrast to what many religious leaders teach today that the road to God is broad and that there are many ways to the kingdom of God.

11. We need to also remember that Jesus did not come to earth to be our teacher. He came to be our Saviour. If Jesus Christ is only your teacher, you will find that His teachings are impossible to follow. His teachings will only lead you to frustration.

12. Jesus did not come to give us a set of ideals to follow, but He came to live His life in our lives so that we can have God’s righteousness through Him. >>>
