Judge Not | Matt 7

This week Jesus in the sermon on the mount continues to warn his followers of what can detract and derail their walk with God. While we hold opinions on many things and topics, Jesus warns about crossing over to levying judgments on others that are rooted in pride in the heart.

Anxiousness | Matt 6

Jesus continues in speaking to the subjects of life that distract us from our faith. Last week it was the excessive wanting of things, this week the worries of life. Jesus’ antidote is to seek the greater, the kingdom of God and when we do all of the lesser things of life will be added.

Treasured Treasures | Matt 6

Jesus continues in the Sermon on the Mount, warning his followers that there are distractions and detours in our journey with Jesus Christ. The first one he wants to address are the treasures of this world that so easily grab our hearts.

Righteous Fasting | Matt 6

Jesus speaks to the third way we can practice our faith in Matthew 6... fasting. “Do not do it like the hypocrites do but in secret." A challenge for all who call themselves Christian to deny themselves in this physical world to then connect with God.

Righteous Prayers | Matt 6

As we follow Jesus through the Sermon on the Mount he is now addressing the question, “How does one practice their faith?” This week his answer is prayer, but not like the hypocrites of his time, but an urgency to spend time with our heavenly Father in secret.

Righteous Giving | Matt 6

In the first verses of Matthew 6, Jesus begins to answer the question about how we are to practice our faith and what it should look like. The first topic is our generosity to those in need, may we be merciful givers as our Heavenly Father is a merciful and generous giver.
