We need more than Jesus the Teacher …

We need more than Jesus the Teacher. We need Jesus the Saviour. We read the Beatitudes (Matthew 5:3-12), and we find ourselves thinking, “This is too much for me. I cannot possibly live up to this.” When we think a bit more about this, we start to feel, “This is bad news. It shows us that we’re very far from God what wants us to be.” The Beatitudes bring us to an end of ourselves. They start us thinking, “Is there any good news?” Thank God – the gospel is more than the Beatitudes. The gospel is good news. It tells us that Jesus loves us. It tells us that he died for us. It tells us that he forgives our sin. It tells us that he is our Saviour.
