All who are led by God’s Spirit are God’s sons and daughters. 15 You didn’t receive a spirit of slavery to lead you back again into fear, but you received a Spirit that shows you are adopted as his children. With this Spirit, we cry, “ Abba, Father. ” 16 The same Spirit agrees with our spirit, that we are God’s children. 17 But if we are children, we are also heirs. We are God’s heirs and fellow heirs with Christ, if we really suffer with him so that we can also be glorified with him.
The Sermon on the Mount and the Lord's Prayer are at the heart of the New Testament and the key to the message and life of Jesus. In this book, Rudolf Schnackenburg provides a clearly written and easy-to-understand exegesis of the Sermon on the Mount in light of the Lord's Prayer. By doing so, he demonstrates that the strenuous requirements for true discipleship as prescribed in the Sermon on the Mount are indeed attainable especially when read in the contest of Jesus' whole message.
