Sermon preached on Sunday, June 10, 2012 at Garden Valley Chapel during our morning worship service based on Matthew 7:28-29.
In these last two verses of this chapter we are told by Matthew what effect this most famous Sermon on the Mount produced upon its listeners.
What was their response? What was the result of the sermon?
Short as it may be, these two verses are of great importance in examining the Sermon on the Mount.
There are given to us not as an act of human will, the will of man on the part of Matthew, but as an act of the Holy Spirit who moved Matthew to pen these divine words (cf. 2 Pet 1:21).
They come to us as inspired words of God.
It is here where our gaze turns from the Sermon to the Preacher.
We have spent a considerable amount of time looking at our Lord´s teaching, especially in this last chapter as He makes an urgent appeal to those listening against false prophets and self-deception, against being merely a hearer of God´s Word and not a doer.
But now as we look to the One who preached this Great Sermon we ask, what was the response to that Great Sermon?
Was there a great revival? How many converts?
Listen in for the conclusion of our study of the "greatest sermon every preached by the greatest Preacher who has ever lived, the Lord Jesus Christ" - the ultimate and final authority.
28 And when Jesus finished these sayings, the crowds were astonished at his teaching, 29 for he was teaching them as one who had authority, and not as their scribes. (ESV)
