Dealing with Adulterous Hearts (Matthew 5:27-30 - Sermon on the Mount Series)

Dealing with Adulterous Hearts (Matthew 5:27-30 - Sermon on the Mount Series)

November 23, 2021

We live in a culture today that is obsessed with sex and sensuality. From tv ads, magazines at grocery store checkouts, perfume ads, images of women in their undergarments in store windows, to the songs on the radio that glamorize infidelity—how is it possible to live a life of purity in such a society?

Our text in today's episode is Matthew 5:27-30:
27 "You have heard that it was said, 'You shall not commit adultery.' 28 But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body go into hell.

Adultery always first begins in the mind. In Matthew 5:28, Jesus has laid out to the Pharisees here and us that sexual purity doesn't just involve the physical act of indulging in sex outside marriage, but he gets to the heart of the matter. 

Sexual sin begins in our hearts, and we need to radically do some major surgery to live a life of purity in the world we find ourselves in today.

Being Keepers of Our Homes

Being Keepers of Our Homes

November 9, 2021

One of the ways we adorn the gospel (as it states in Titus 2:10) or make it beautiful is by the care and keeping of our homes. We have been given the responsibility, as Christian women, to the care and management of our homes. 

In this episode, the hope in our time together is that we capture the reality of God's hand in every aspect of our lives as workers at home. There is purpose ladies being worked out in our normal day-to-day life. God is always at work behind the scenes.

The Sin of Anger (Matthew 5:21-26 - Sermon on the Mount Series)

The Sin of Anger (Matthew 5:21-26 - Sermon on the Mount Series)

October 26, 2021

Are we always mindful as we think of our sinful anger, even though it doesn't lead to physically murdering someone, is committing murder against another person in our heart, and will also be judged by the Lord? 

One commentator stated: "We would learn that we actually do worse things than these if we could only see our hearts as God is able to see them." 

We are all murderers. Have you ever lost your temper, harbored a grudge against someone, gossiped, neglected their needs, spoke unkindly about them or to them, or have you been jealous? 

We can destroy others in our thoughts and with our words, and as those who profess to be known and loved by Jesus, this should not be.

Jesus, the Law and the Christian (Matthew 5:17-20 - Sermon on the Mount Series)

Jesus, the Law and the Christian (Matthew 5:17-20 - Sermon on the Mount Series)

September 21, 2021

Jesus did not come to do away with the Law—He came to fulfill it. As we continue on in our series on the Sermon on the Mount we will see how Christ fulfills the scriptures and what place the law has in our lives as His followers

Our text today is Matthew 5:17-20:
"Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished. 19 Therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

Getting Things Done: A Walk Through Ephesians 5:15-16

Getting Things Done: A Walk Through Ephesians 5:15-16

August 31, 2021

Do you, as a Christian, plan your days, so you're using your time wisely (Ephesians 5:15-16)? We don't just want to live to get things done or get the most things done; we want to get done what we should be focusing on or prioritizing. 

Come listen in as we walk through Ephesians 5:15-16 together:

Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.

BITESIZE: God’s Blessing Does Not Depend On Our Performance

BITESIZE: God’s Blessing Does Not Depend On Our Performance

July 7, 2021

"If God’s favor to us were based on our performance—we’re in trouble because even our best days are flawed with sin. We don’t always have pure motives and really in some way we are always looking out for ourselves.”

You are the Light of the World (Sermon on the Mount Series - Matthew 5:14-16)

You are the Light of the World (Sermon on the Mount Series - Matthew 5:14-16)

May 25, 2021

When Christians begin living like Christians, it affects the world around them. We are light to a dark world. Jesus is the light of the world (John 8:12), and He is a great light that has come to those dwelling in darkness (Matthew 4:16).

Because of Christ's work in those of us who are in Christ, we are now light, and we're to live as children of light. We are to have nothing to do with darkness because we've been delivered from its domain (Colossians 1:12-13). We who were once not just in darkness, but we were darkness, now have the glorious privilege to be light in the Lord. 

Our text today is Matthew 5:14-16:
You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven

The Salt of the Earth (Sermon on the Mount Series - Matthew 5:13)

The Salt of the Earth (Sermon on the Mount Series - Matthew 5:13)

April 26, 2021

In this next episode of the Sermon on the Mount, we start with two common pictures we're all familiar with from everyday life. No matter your location in the world—you know what salt and light are. We are to be salt, and we are to be light or better to state as the scripture states - we ARE salt, and we ARE light. 

We're going to take these one at a time, so today, we're just working through Matthew 5:13:

"You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people's feet
