This sermon of Jesus, found in the book of Matthew, is as relevant and striking in the modern world as it was when the Lord first delivered it. As we take a closer look at what Jesus preached that day on a hillside overlooking the Sea of Galilee, we find a revolutionary message about the Christian life. Those who follow Jesus will do life much differently than others do, that being �countercultural.� They will think differently, talk differently, and live differently. In doing so, they will bring the culture of the kingdom of Christ into the present, making this world a better place. May this devotional draw you to a deeper understanding of the Christian life as it was meant to be lived�radical and transformational�for the salvation of all and for the glory of God.
