Sermon In A Sentence: Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount is not to be obeyed in hopes of obtaining salvation; but lived out as evidence that one has salvation.

The pure in heart are blessed, for they will see God. The peacemakers are blessed, for they will be called sons of God. Those who are
persecuted for righteousness are blessed, for the kingdom of heaven is theirs. You are blessed when they insult and persecute you and falsely say every kind of evil against you because of Me.
