    II. We must understand how destructive sin is. A. How are we supposed to “mourn”? 1. Like at a funeral of a lost family member? 2. Like when we did something wrong by accident or on purpose?

    Introduction: As we continue our series, let’s back up for a moment and consider what has just transpired in the life of Christ. In the last two verses of the previous chapter we can see that Jesus had become very famous with His healings and miracles. “Great multitudes of people” from more

    We don’t see much meekness in this world, but it was a meek and lowly life that Christ modeled for us. When we watch a movie depicting the life of Christ, we often see a soft spoken and gentle man. Perhaps that is the picture we have of meekness. Only

    Great things are always revealed to God’s chosen people on the mountaintop. There are many examples of this throughout the Bible. We haven’t the time to look at all of these, but we can continue to look at what Jesus spoke on the Sermon on the Mount. Again, what we should notice is the fact more

    In order to cope with all of the pain and suffering that goes on around us, we have learned to control our emotions and we don’t allow ourselves to dwell too long on all that ails this world. In the process however, we have become almost indifferent and m

    Introduction: We live in a world where it is easy to become cold-hearted, insensitive, and unsympathetic. With news available to us 24/7, we can see the tragedies almost as they take place most anywhere in the world. Constantly we hear of, and see the results of violent acts that have occurred. more

    The principle for peace is the same as the principle for the farmer’s crops. Never underestimate the power of a seed.

    Text: Matthew 5:1 thru 9 While driving down the road during the summer months we can easily see miracle after miracle. With every field of corn, wheat or soybean, we can see miracles taking place. If we take a small seed and put it under several inches of dirt, and give it enough water, more

    There are some who do not see the Christian life as one that involves physical or emotional pain. The popular message to preach nowadays is the “prosperity message.” That message satisfies a lot of people.

    As we continue our study on THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT, we will see tonight that the direction in which Jesus was teaching (in the first nine verses) takes a sharp turn in the highway. The verses we have already studied have been inspiring and uplifting for me, personally. But what we will read more

    Jesus warns us that we will have many trials and sorrows. We need to be prepared for those trials and sorrows. Not to worry over them, but not to be naïve. One of our greatest sorrows is when our friends or loved ones come against us for our commitmen

    Tonight we will conclude our study on The Sermon on the Mount. There is still much more that Christ taught in chapter five, but our focus has been primarily focused on the portion that includes “The Beatitudes”. Last week we looked closely at verse 10, and I would like to connect a final study more

    When Jesus spoke this message, He knew what our problem is. Whenever you think that no one else knows or cares about your problem, let me remind you remind you that Jesus knows it all.

    Many times it is hard for Americans to relate to the verse we will study tonight. That is, not many of us really have had to do without food and water for an extended period of time. Perhaps we have chosen to do this on a few occasions. Due to health reasons or even spiritual reasons we may have more
