Prepare Our Hearts- April 19

This Sunday morning we are beginning our study of the Sermon on the Mount.  We are looking specifically at Jesus' words in Matthew 5:1-16, and what it means to live in "the Kingdom of Heaven".  Reading Matthew 4 (the beginning of Jesus Ministry) and Matthew 5-7 (the entire Sermon on the Mount) will give you a greater understanding of the context of this passage within the book of Matthew.  Looking at Psalm 24, Psalm 1, Exodus 19 & 20, and 1 Kings 8 will give a broader perspective from the whole Bible.  While you are reading pay close attention to two things; the ...

Verse 2 for Memory Work- Colossians 3:13

Second Verse for Memory Work- Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you all has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave all of you. YOU are forgiven!  All the times you have broken relationship with God and others- sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry, anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language (Col. 3:5, 8)- ALL of those are taken away by the Love of God through the work of King Jesus on the cross.  Meditate upon the glorious gift that is God's forgiveness. Then take a moment to ...

First verse for memory work- Colossians 3:12- Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Take a moment to meditate upon what it means that we are God's chosen people that are Holy and Dearly Loved by God!  If we are to "clothe" ourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience how should we look?  What "style" are we sporting if these are our clothes?

What is Missional? Part 3

This is the last installment of our discussion about What does Missional Mean?  Last month we saw that Jesus commanded his disciples (and by extension all Christians) to go in to all the world and make disciples, teaching them to obey everything that Jesus commanded.  We saw that the summary of that teaching is Jesus is King, and Life is Different in the Kingdom. It is important to understand the entire context of the Gospels- Jesus came as the King, showed us what his reign is like, and then was wrongly executed because he claimed to be King.  Yet this happened so ...

What is Missional? Part 2

Now to continue our discussion about What does Missional Mean?  To sum up from last month, Jesus proclaimed, and instructed his disciples to proclaim, “The Kingdom of God has come near!”  This was explained briefly by saying “We are to show the world what it means to be under the Reign of God.” This is less than helpful, for most of us are a little fuzzy about what the Kingdom of God is.  Plus, since the Great Awakening the “Great Commission” has been used to describe Christian living; “All authority in Heaven and on Earth has been given to me.  ...
