SUNDAY WORSHIP: SUNDAY, February 14, 2016~ 9 AM & 11 AM:
PREPARE FOR WORSHIP:
We are starting our Lent series and Bible study on the Sermon on the Mount. This
is found in the Gospel of Matthew chapters 5-7. Our sermon series will be entitled
"Making Life Matter", because in this passage Jesus proclaims how God can
transform our lives and our world. The elements found in these verses hold great
potential for us to continue the transformation process. In Matthew 5:3-16, Jesus'
sermon communicates the need for us to "Change Lanes" from the path of this
world, to God's path for us. Jesus shifts the priorities to God's coming Kingdom
and the blessing it will bring for our lives. As you read Matthew 5:3-16, where
does God challenge you to be transformed for the coming Kingdom: Matthew 5:3-
16: "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 be shown 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 because of
righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. "Blessed are you when people
insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of
me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same
way they persecuted the prophets who were before you. "You are the salt of the
earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no
longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. "You
are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do
people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it
gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before
others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
