How do you find meaning, purpose, and hope when things don’t turn out like you’d envisioned—when God’s plan is so very hard and nothing like you thought it would be? What do you do to press on?
Nothing Jesus stated was ever more profound than His Sermon on the Mount. In the section of Scripture we’ll examine in this lesson, Jesus discussed the Christian’s relationship to the Mosaic Law. At the heart of His instruction is righteousness—the state of having sufficient grounds to stand before a holy God.
What kind of faith can blossom in a country closed to the gospel? Ney Bailey says it’s the kind that makes people willing to sit and wait six hours for a Bible teacher to arrive to teach them.

This inductive study is designed to create a better understanding of finding and giving encouragement. For the next 30 days read the questions and allow them to spark deeper personal reflection and life change.
Chuck and Ney discuss where a life of faith comes from. Taking God at His Word doesn’t mean we’ll never be fearful, but as we face fear with faith and see God act, our faith grows.
We can read Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount in 15 minutes or less. No teacher or preacher has ever packed more truth into such a brief period of time.

Chuck Swindoll introduces us to his old friend, Ney Bailey, who has served God faithfully in ministry since 1961. God called her to minister for a time behind the Iron Curtain.
Of all the sermons that have been preached, none is more famous, more profound, or more convicting than the one Jesus preached on the mountain. It is timeless, ever-relevant, and never dull.
