I just learned that Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount actually lasted for several days. He probably spent the better part of a week encouraging and instructing people about obedience, anger, divorce, integrity, retaliation, loving our enemies, the poor, prayer, criticizing others, money, Kingdom of heaven and faith.
One of the cool things about Jesus- was that He lived here. Which meant, they got to watch Him daily and nightly, to see Him walk the walk.....to see Him live out what He preached about.His wisdom and questions perplexed and amazed the intellectuals of His day.
The Bible records that people traveled for days to see Him – sometimes getting nothing more than a brief glimpse, or a momentary chance to reach out and touch his garment in hopes of being healed.
Why are we not doing the same?
God, forgive me for not making more effort to hear You.
