True Blessedness: a Sermon on Matthew 5:1-12

True Blessedness: a Sermon on Matthew 5:1-12

November 20, 2019

This message is based on Matthew 5:1-12 and looks at what Jesus teaches it means to be truly blessed, in contrast to the messages from our wider culture. We're blessed in our helplessness as well as our helpfulness, and most of all we're blessed in Christ.

Here's the text:

Matthew 5:1-12, "When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain; and after he sat down, his disciples came to him. Then he began to speak, and taught them, saying: ‘Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. ‘Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. ‘Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. ‘Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. ‘Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy. ‘Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. ‘Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. ‘Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. ‘Blessed are you when people revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you."

Man Outside the Garden of God (Cain and Abel): A Sermon on Genesis 4:1-15

Man Outside the Garden of God (Cain and Abel): A Sermon on Genesis 4:1-15

September 7, 2019

This sermon is on the account of Cain and Abel in Genesis 4:1-15. There we find a sobering message about the darkness of the human heart and where anger, bitterness and resentment can lead. However we are also lead to Jesus Christ - the new and better Abel - whose shed blood speaks a better word of grace and forgiveness. In Him we are transformed into people who are free from hate and anger to truly love our brothers and sisters.

Streetwise for Eternity: a Sermon on Luke 16:1-9

Streetwise for Eternity: a Sermon on Luke 16:1-9

August 26, 2019

Luke 16:1-9 is sometimes called the parable of the dishonest manager. It's one of Jesus' more challenging parables where he uses the example of a unrighteous person to teach his disciples. So what's the lesson? Jesus is teaching his disciples to be streetwise like the people of this world, but with a very different end and goal in mind, namely eternal life.
