Build Your House on the Rock

We recognized and tried to honor our mothers on Mother’s Day but I did not bring a Mother’s Day message this year. We have spent a number of weeks on Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount and this is the final sermon in that series.

Enter the Narrow Gate

Broad is the way that leads to destruction and there are many that go in. Enter the narrow gate. It’s not as easy, but definitely worth it.

Ask, Seek and Knock

“Ask and it shall be given…” Would you be surprised if I told we need to consider that verse in context?

Judging Others

Jesus’ statement to “judge not lest ye be judged” is one of the most quoted and also misused verses of scripture. People pull it out like a trump card without considering the whole counsel of God. Let’s consider this statement in context and see what else Jesus and other New Testament authors had to say about passing judgment before coming to a conclusion.

Do Not Worry

We continue today in the Sermon on the Mount and finish Matthew 6.

Think of not worrying as practicing a spiritual discipline. It’s something we have to be consciously aware of and perhaps work hard at. It worry is a problem in your life pray that the Holy Spirit would you through it just like with all other wisdom and understanding.

Lay Up Treasures in Heaven

Part 5 in the Sermon on the Mount series.

We need to understand the command to lay up treasures in heaven in the context of what has just come before in Jesus’ sermon. The first half of chapter 6 has been about giving, praying and fasting in secret, not before an audience but in the sight of God who will reward openly.

The Lord’s Prayer

Part 4 in the Sermon on the Mount Series.

The Lord’s Prayer in Matthew 6 is part of a larger discourse on not doing things the way others do them which includes giving, praying and fasting. Click here to read Peter Smythe’s “The Lord’s Prayer is so Old Testament” which I reference during the sermon. I printed the list of scripture references and handed them out to my congregation but you can view the list as well as read the full article.

What Jesus Said

There are several passages in Matthew 5 that begin with Jesus saying “You have heard… but I say to you…” Jesus is not compelling his audience to do a better job keeping the commandments. He has an entirely different motivation than the Pharisees. He wants people to change their thought process about what it means to be God’s children.
