Sermon on the Mount – Pt. 4

Raising the bar. This portion of the sermon on the mount digs into the heart of what the Mosaic law was trying to get to. We find that often the things we may think are “not such a big deal” often are.

Sermon on the Mount – Pt. 1

From time to time we become aware that there are gaps between the world we live in and the way Jesus has taught us to live. In this new series, we will explore Jesus’ teachings from his sermon on the mount.

Let There Be Light – Pt. 4

Jesus is the light of the world. As His followers, we are also called salt and light. Just as the children’s song says, we need to let our light shine in the darkness of this world.

Let There Be Light – Pt. 2

Light brings a feeling of warmth. Even when it is cold outside, the sight of the sun can bring a feeling of warmth with it. Jesus is the Light of the world. He does not reflect the light like the moon does. He is the source of light like the sun!

Going Public – Pt. 5

As Christians, we also have the opportunity to go public before authority figures. It is important to remember that authorities have been placed in the positions they have by God. We must therefore show proper honor and respect, regardless of whether we feel they deserve it or not.

24/6 The Rest of God – Pt. 3

If anyone could justify not resting, it would be Jesus. He had three years to start a movement that would change the world. But He still chose to rest. We should follow His example.

24/6 The Rest of God – Pt. 2

Creating a rhythm between work and rest is important. However, we must be sure that we do not confuse “rest” with “leisure.” We can be just as out of balance by not working enough as we can by not resting enough. Sometimes the challenge is trusting God with our rest during the time of harvest.
