August 15 – The Sermon on the Mount – Matthew 6
The Sermon on the Mount is continued in chapters 6 & 7. In chapter 6 the topics covered are giving, prayer, fasting, life values, and anxiety or worry. Do you know what Jesus thoughts are on these topics? I Corinthians 2:16 states that we have the mind of Christ: “For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.” As we hold the mind of Christ in our hands, we must understand it is absolutely worthless to us unless we read and apply the words of Christ. Let’s apply the mind of Christ to our lives. Pick a topic and study that group of verses today. What warning does Jesus express? What actions are the right actions to take in the topic you have chosen? What principles can you find regarding your topic? What is the correct attitude when approaching that topic? Answer the questions and apply what you read to your life.
