Pushing the Boundaries: Pastor Reid Matthias

As the Sermon the Mount veers from “Blessed are…” to, “You have heard it said… but I tell you…” we begin to see the core of the cultural transformation taking place. When Jesus says, “You have heard it said,” it’s a quick and slight stab at those who are always quick to point to the minute details of the Law rather than the perspective of the Gospel that they bring. Law drives us to a need for God, a need for a Saviour and a desperate desire to know that there is something bigger than our mistakes.
Matt. 5:27-32
