In this fifth and last sermon in our series on the beatitudes, we ponder why we would ever be persecuted for "righteousness sake" and why a Christ follower experiences inner peace and joy while being persecuted.
Keeping in mind that these eight fruits of God's favor are descriptive of what he does rather than prescriptions for what we must produce via our own hard work, we'll take a closer look at how God empowers us to be pure in heart and to become peacemakers.
As we ponder what it means to be blessed by hungering and thirsting for righteousness and being merciful, we remember that these be-attitudes are God's gift, his handiwork, lived in our lives by and through Jesus.
We continue our series on the beatitudes by considering what it means to be blessed and by studying the beatitudes/blessings of mourning and of being meek.
Join us for this first sermon in our five-part series about the beatitudes. This message will discuss the blessing of being "poor in spirit" and provide an overview of all eight blessings that form the introduction to Jesus' Sermon on the Mount.
He Lives IN Us!
Muslims do not speak of Muhammad living in them, nor do Buddhists speak of Buddha inhabiting them. Yet as Christ followers we believe that Christ IN us is the hope of glory. https://www.ptm.org/mp3/FreeDwnld/RCWR445.mp3
The Cross – Anger or Love?
When the love of God is stripped away from the significance of the cross of Christ, revenge and violence is all that is left - but that anger is not the wrath of God. https://www.ptm.org/mp3/FreeDwnld/RCWR444.mp3
Samson and …?
The life of Samson is filled with scandal and sleaze, yet perhaps one of its great lessons for us is seen in the context of Jesus Christ, so that we realize that no matter how far we may have run from God, God is always near. https://www.ptm.org/mp3/FreeDwnld/RCWR443.mp3
Grace Poured Out
The elements of bread and wine/juice instituted by Jesus are symbols of the limitless favor and lavish grace of God, poured out on us without measure.
Grace = No Condemnation
There is no place in the gospel for continually finding fault, threats and intimidation, even when Christ-less religion says that the end justifies the means.
A 58-Word Sermon
How long must a sermon be, or how short can it be? Join Greg as he looks at the example of Jesus, and at how Jesus must be the center of all sermons. https://www.ptm.org/mp3/FreeDwnld/RCWR440.mp3
The Road Less Taken
The road, path or way we walk is a symbol of our commitment to the direction we are headed and evidence of our thanksgiving to Jesus who invites us to walk with him.
Trusting In God Alone
Though a husband or wife, son or daughter, parent or friend might fail or betray us - should the bank close and the stock market crash - though doctors are unable to perform miracles - we are assured that our ultimate and unreserved trust is in God alone. https://www.ptm.org/mp3/FreeDwnld/RCWR437.mp3
How Grace “Works”
God "works out" and produces his good purpose, workmanship and handiwork in our lives, because he has already "worked in" the life of our risen Lord. https://www.ptm.org/mp3/FreeDwnld/RCWR436.mp3
Let’s Make a Deal!
If you want to make a deal and bargain, then you'll want performance-based, Christ-less religion. Bargaining and making deals with God is the heart and core of religion. God doesn't do religion - God does grace! https://www.ptm.org/mp3/FreeDwnld/RCWR435.mp3
