    Be who God created you to be.

    “The Heart of God” Matthew 5:38-48 This morning’s Gospel Lesson is right-smack in the middle of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount.

    Love your enemies

    There is a sign in the Princeton University Store basement which cleverly suggests: "Love your enemies—it will drive them crazy." Jesus’ ethical teaching is higher than this example because love of enemies is not a consequentialist ethic, hoping that the other person will change. Love more

    Often there are two attitudes a Christian has toward serving Christ. The possibility of growing wearing and why do we have to do so much.

    Most of the New Testament was written to the disciples of Christ. Jesus taught from every angle to build His disciples. These Jews knew the Old Testament. He wanted them to know that He did not come to destroy the moral laws of God, vs. 17. He actually came to add to them. His conversation went more

  • Christian Challenge Sermon V: Make Or Break Situations Demand Integrity Series

    Contributed by Charles Cunningham on Dec 12, 2019

    In times like these, Christians are challenged to speak the truth in love and to act with integrity even though to do so may be costly in terms of likeability, yet rewarding in terms of glorifying God.

    CHRISTIAN CHALLENGE SERMON V: MAKE OR BREAK SITUATIONS DEMAND INTEGRITY “Cross my heart and hope to die!” Did any of you ever use that phrase to swear to a friend that you would keep a promise? As kids, we engaged in such promise making, except that we might have done so with more

  • The Sermon On The Mount (Part Twelve) Series

    Contributed by Derrick Tuper on Nov 18, 2019

    Throughout the sermon on the mount, Jesus clarified misconceptions. He explained the deeper implications of the law and broadened their understanding so they could conduct themselves according to God's intentions. Today, Jesus does this regarding retaliation.

    THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT (part twelve) Matt. 5:38-42 Jane Vajnar writes the story about her friend's four young boys. They were always full of energy; even in church. But the sermon her minister preached on turning the other cheek got their undivided attention. The minister stressed that no more

  • The Christian And Revenge Series

    Contributed by Grant Adams on Nov 13, 2019

    Revenge might well be called the battle cry of the modern age. Everyone wants to get even or get back or get to someone else. The world is full of inequality and always will be.

    Revenge might well be called the battle cry of the modern age. Everyone wants to get even or get back or get to someone else. The world is full of inequality and always will be. There will always be good and bad, rich and poor, famous and unknown. Perhaps, I should riot because I do not have as more

    Contributed by C. Philip Green on Oct 17, 2019
    based on 1 rating

    Kingdom Justice says, don’t retaliate. Specifically, accept insults with patience, judgment with generosity, hardship with grace, and demands with willingness. But in order to do that, you must accept God's grace with humility.

    A mother ran into the bedroom when she heard her seven-year-old son scream. She found his two-year-old sister pulling his hair. She gently released the little girl's grip and said comfortingly to the boy, “There, there. She didn't mean it. She doesn't know that hurts.” He nodded his more

  • Renew Violence Series

    Contributed by Robert Butler on Oct 9, 2019

    While Jesus forbids the use of the sword as a means to advance the kingdom of God, the New Testament does not teach an absolute or principled pacifism.

    Violence – we are a culture awash in it. Violence is on our TVs and devices, whether in the form of entertainment or the nightly news. We can’t go a day without hearing about some new statistic about the death rates in “CHIRAQ” or Chicago or about another ISIS moment in the Middle East. For many of more

We are not going to do anything unless its fair or we are treated fairly. We show up to do something for God and then get angry because not enough showed up so we more

  • That's Not Fair

    Contributed by Gary Holt on Sep 21, 2019

    “That’s not fair” Matthew 5:38-42 Here are some things we always see in the news: There was a mass shooting There was another bombing A church fought and split over who got to be in charge Cruel words were spoken, doors were slammed Tears were shed, and bones were broken Hearts were broken, more

  • The Worship Of Waiting (Psalm 37) Series

    Contributed by James Jackson on Aug 26, 2019

    We know God wins in the end. But what do we do in the meantime, when evil seems to be winning?

    The Worship of Waiting (Psalm 37) Good morning! Please turn in your Bibles to Psalm 37.
