Matthew 5:1-2 NIV
Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him,  and he began to teach them.
As we start the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus goes up a mountain and teaches how to live in a relationship with God – just as Moses did all those years before. This is not accidental – like Moses, Jesus comes offering us a new relationship with God just as he did.
Father, thank you that through Jesus I can call you just that, Father!
