Living in dreamland? – The vision and the challenge of the Sermon on the Mount

Matthew's Gospel - LumoCan you imagine a world in which people love their enemies and forgive each other the hurts they cause? A world in which people are not caught up in the frantic hunt for stuff but instead learn a contentment and joy in what they have? A world in which people are not judged and brought down by others? Many people would say that it’s impossible, that folk who imagine such a world are living in dreamland. Well, that’s the vision which Jesus gives his followers in his teaching that Matthew records in his Gospel. Today we call it the Sermon on the Mount. Each Sunday in our morning services for the next few weeks we are looking at this amazing vision. How can it come to be? And that’s the challenge – because if we want it to become a reality, it needs to start with us. It needs to start with us admitting that if we’re going to live like this we need to be changed from the inside out. So, if you’re caught by the vision, or if you want to find out why Christians can seem like we’re living in dreamland, you’ll be very welcome to come along and join us, any Sunday at 11.00 am.
