Tonight, Dave continues our series on the Sermon on the mount, by exploring Jesus words in “Matthew 7:15-23” where he teaches on the tree and it’s fruit. Tonight we see Jesus’ desperation for disciples to fully experience the kingdom and so he warns to guard against deceivers, and in turn speaks to take care not to be deceived.
Tonight, Dave focuses on Matthew 7:12-14, looking at the golden rule. Jesus leads us as His disciples that if we are going to be those who engage fully with the Kingdom life then we must love God and love others as we love ourselves.
Matthew 7:7-11. Often we feel we don’t get answers to prayer. We need to learn that our incentive in praying must be relational rather than merely functional. Effective prayer is built upon the Father heart of God and our Sonship relationship to Him. Also effective prayer is built on the goodness of God and that He wants to give us good gifts. We need to change our mindset from a functional view of prayer to a relational one.
Tonight Dave continues our theme by exploring the words of Jesus in Matthew 7:1-6 where we are directed to not judge others.
Dave continues on from last Sunday night where we explored the teaching of Jesus for his disciples to simplify their lives, to go with less so that others could go with more. We recognized that one of the main barriers to this is the area of anxiety and worry that is produced in many hearts as they think about doing this. We recognized that the 3 teachings of Christ that overcome this are to:
1. Practice thankfulness
2. Live a life of faith
Seek first the kingdom and his righteousness
Tonight, Dave continues our series on the sermon on the mount. We look at the command of Jesus to not store up treasures. As we explore the life of a disciple and how Jesus’ desire is for us to live fully alive in the kingdom, the question we asked together is how do we SIMPLIFY our lives so that others can go with more?
Tash tonight teaches on the Lords Prayer as part of our series on the Sermon on the Mount.
This evening Ryan Continues on with the series “166” and the study of the Sermon on the Mount”
Robbie teaches on retaliation from the Sermon on the Mount, found in Matthew 5:38-42. He teaches us the context into which Jesus was speaking and how we can implement His teaching into our lives. He reminds us that Jesus was teaching the importance to respond not with anger or hatred, but with love and grace.
Divorce is such a reality today. To answer their questions about divorce, Jesus takes us back to the beginning. God’s design - one woman, one man, one flesh, for life. Divorce was never an option; it wasn’t even in the picture. While I don’t want anyone feeling condemned or guilty over a failed relationship. I don’t want anyone to go away feeling that marriage vows are anything other than permanent and binding before a holy God. Some will think I’m too liberal, some will think I’m too hard. That’s just the nature of the subject. So, I am going to try to BIBLE this as much as I can.
How do you prevent a foothold becoming a stronghold in the area of sexual temptation? In the latest part of our ‘Sermon on the Mount’ series, we explore Jesus’ teaching on lust.
Tonight, Dave continues to explore the Sermon on the Mount by looking at the passage of Matthew 5:17-20 on how Christ came to fulfil the law.
Tonight Tara continues our 166 theme by looking at teaching on “Salt and Light” from the Sermon on the mount. (Matthew 5:13-16)
Tonight, Dave continued as part of our 166 theme to explore “The Sermon on the Mount” and looked at the well-known passage in Matthew 5 on the Beatitudes. Tonight, we explored about how Jesus references the blessing of the Kingdom and how it was for every person.
Tonight, we began our new series by exploring the first two verses of Matthew 5 in the introduction to the Sermon on the Mount. Dave tonight looked at three main points:
1. the difference between crowds and disciples
2. the call to come away with Jesus in the midst of life’s difficulties
3. the need to listen to the word of God for people who are in the midst of struggles, rather than simply sharing human wisdom
