Jesus' message was the same as the message of His forerunner, John the Baptist. That message was: 'Repent (metanoia-change the way you think) because the Kingdom of the Heavens has drawn near.' In the passage, classically referred to as 'The Sermon on the Mount,' Jesus teaches the people what Kingdom Thinking looks like. Not only are the standards of the Kingdom different and higher than those of the world, they are also definitive. The standards you follow define who you follow. Whose side you are on can generally be determined by honestly asking yourself two questions: 'Whose applause are you seeking?' and 'Who treasure are you seeking?' Today's message considers the first of those question. This message was presented on Sunday, September 23, 2018 by Bob Corbin.
