In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus gives His followers—and by extension, Christians of every era—a clear picture of how to conduct themselves in a fallen world. The believer’s role can be summarized in one word: influence.

In four short verses from Matthew’s gospel, the Lord spells out the responsibility and power that believers have to use their earthly lives for eternal good. Let John MacArthur show you the Bible’s timeless principles for How to Live in a Dying World.
