DAILY DOSE OF EMMET FOX #essentialsofrecovery

THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT

The setting forth of the Sermon on the Mount is an almost perfect codification of the religion of Jesus Christ. It covers the essentials. It is practical and personal. It is definite, specific, and yet widely illuminating. Once the true meaning of the instruction has been grasped, it is only necessary to begin putting them into practice to get immediate results. The magnitude and extent of these results will depend solely upon the sincerity and thoroughness with which they are applied. That is a matter which each individual has to settle for himself.

If you really do wish to become a different person altogether in the sight of God and man, then Jesus, in his Sermon on the Mount, has clearly shown you how it is to be done.

If you are prepared to break with the old man, an start upon the creation of the new one, then the study of the great Sermon will indeed be to you the Mountain of Liberation.

…But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves (James 1:22).
