The next verses (Matt. 5.7-12) show that Jesus continues to challenge the worldview of the people. He also begins to set the stage for confrontation with the Pharisees by mentioning the need for a pure heart (not just clean hands). But most importantly, Jesus is continuing to reveal what being a part of God's Kingdom truly means.

Our worldview reveals and controls a lot of what we think about life and the universe. Jesus came to give people a different worldview - one that focused on the Kingdom of God. But before He gives the commands on how to live, He uses relational terms to show that God loves us and desires a relationship with us.

Habakkuk 2.14 says that the knowledge of God's glory will one day fill the earth as water covers the sea. Once we experience that glory our life will be changed. Rick shares from Isaiah 6 on the glimpse of God's majesty Isaiah witnessed and the response it caused in him. Our response should be the same.

We begin a new series this week covering the Sermon on the Mount with a focus on the phrase "on earth as it is in heaven." This week serves as an introduction to the series with a look at how it came to be (in Andy's mind), a review of the setting, and the purpose Jesus had in teaching His followers this message.

This series on adoption ends this week, but not before the apostle Paul reveals an unbelievable aspect of being a child of God - we are co-heirs with Christ. The greatest gift is knowing God, but knowing God means He also shares all that is His.

Ultimately, the family of God is one big, blended family. But with Jesus' words in John 20.17, we can call God our Father once we receive the gift of knowing Jesus (John 1.12).

As our Father, God wants to bless us, but He also has expectations for us - as we relate to Him and to each other. This week, we "hear" from our big brother, Jesus, on how we are to live as family.

If God has a Kingdom, then He is King. But if God adopts children, then He must be Father as well (or at least one Person of Him is). As Father, how should we respond to Him? This week's post briefly shows God the Father to be personal, demanding, and trustworthy.

Adoption into God's family is possible because of only one reason - God's love. And because of that love, He invites us to call Him "Father."
