Martyn Lloyd-Jones on

“Why Memorize the Sermon on the Mount?”

“He came — I say  — and lived and died and rose again and sent the Holy Spirit in order that you and I might live the Sermon on the Mount…

If only all of us were living the Sermon on the Mount, men would know that there is dynamic in the Christian gospel;

They would know that this is a live thing;

They would not go looking for anything else.

We are all meant to exemplify everything that is contained here in these Beatitudes…

This is not merely a description of the Hudson Taylors or George Mullers or the Whitefields or Wesleys of this world

it is a description of every Christian.

We are all of us meant to conform to its pattern and to rise to its standard.” ~ Martyn Lloyd-Jones
