Matthew 5: 1-12
This is the first sermon in a six-week series on the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7). Dr. Bell initially speaks about the general importance of acknowledging the Lordship of Jesus Christ in our lives, noting that Christians are quick to claim him as their Savior but reluctant to claim him as Lord. Then, he turns his attention to The Beatitudes (Matthew 5:1-12), suggesting that they reveal a new reality in the Kingdom of God – not a list of character traits for all Christians, as is often thought.
