    THE MERITS OF MEEKNESS MATTHEW 5:5 INTRODUCTION: Maybe there is no other beatitude, spoken by Jesus, that is more confusing than the one we study today. “Blessed are the meek...” Why is it confusing?

    All of life is a preliminary to the dawning of that day of the Lord, when He shall come riding on the clouds to claim His own. This place is not our home. We are pilgrims passing through, and we shall not rest until we rest IN HIM.

    Biblical Text: 2 Thessalonians 1:11-12 “Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of His goodness, and the work of faith with power; that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in Him, ...read more

    If we do not merit God’s blessings, then how is it that those who are obedient are more likely to see their prayers answered?

    This morning, we continue our series of messages on prayer. I’ve chosen this topic to begin the year because of its great importance. Prayer is absolutely foundational to the Christian life. It’s basic to our identity as Christians. Prayer is a necessary practice for anyone who wants to know and ...read more

    based on 60 ratings
     | 5,759 views

    God gives his gifts, not based on our merit, ability of achievement, but based on his generous grace.

    It’s hard to miss the hype of a TV show like American Idol. I haven’t really paid much attention to it in the past three seasons, but it caught my eye a couple of weeks ago. It has a lot of interesting elements: the fairy tale ‘rags to riches’ angle; the off-beat personalities; the actual ...read more

    The riches of a relationship with the true God through faith in Christ alone cannot compare to the bankruptcy of merit religion.

    Dead Religion or New Life? (Philippians 3:1-3) INTRO 1. Many of you know that I love the music of the 20’s and 30’s and old time radio from the 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s. 2. Because of MP3 formatting of discs, I have discs with over 100 shows on them…all available Jack Benny programs (the greatest ...read more

    based on 66 ratings
     | 3,298 views

    God’s grace is dependent on what Christ did for us, and not on what we do. It is given without respect to merit, worh, or accomplishment.

Over these next three Sundays, we will be focusing our attention on this one single doctrine, because a correct understanding of God’s grace is at the center of our faith. It is absolutely foundational. A clear, ...read more

    “Lost people” have done a cost-benefits analysis and have determined that they do not get enough positive benefits from church participation to merit their continued involvement.

    MEMBERSHIP IS NOT AN OPTION Why do some people who have grown up in the church or having started out so well after being saved as adults run aground or drift away from the Lord? What lures them away? What compels them to leave the church? And why is it the Church in America is having difficulty ...read more
