Chronological Reading Plan for Oct 9, Mt 5-7

Today's readings are Mt 5-7. Tomorrow's are Mt 9 Lk 7.

The Sermon on the Mount is the greatest sermon in the Bible, the greatest sermon of all time.  Each paragraph is a block in the foundation for Christ's ministry, each a reflection, in some manner, of His character and nature.


When reading the Beatitudes (Mt 5:2-7), instead of seeing them as different types or groups of people that are to be blessed, look at them as various attributes of Christ, meant to rise up in each believer. With that premise set in these six verses, Jesus goes on to expand upon each of them, setting the tone and standards for the how we are to live out the gospel and be His witnesses. This entire, phenomenal sermon is based on the opening statements, the Beatitudes.
