In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus reverses our natural, default response to aggression and opposition. In the human fallen order you retaliate! You return harm for harm! But in Jesus' Upside Down Kingdom, we, with new hearts, return good for evil and love for hate and give more than is required of us. This new way of living and giving has and will continue to change our entire world! Read more and watch this week's message on our blog.
