"The result was that when Jesus had finished these words, the multitudes were amazed at His teaching; for He was teaching them as one having authority, and not as their scribes." Matthew 7:28-29 NASB
Jesus had finished his "Sermon on the Mount." How did the crowd respond? They were amazed at His teachings. They marveled at the great truths that Jesus spoke. They recognized His authority to speak these great truths. How do we respond to the words of Jesus? Are we awestruck by His teaching? Do we recognize His authority to command us? Do we hear and understand His words? Do we follow and obey His words?
Lord Jesus, I humbly acknowledge the Bible as the guide book for my life. Help me to learn and apply Your Word in every part of my life.
