Feb 17 Judging Others / Matthew 7:1-6

Brad Bell

Many have taken this passage to mean people should never judge others, and while non-believers are not held to the same standards, believers are called to speak truth in love and judge each other when necessary. What Jesus is speaking against is the hypocrisy of using different standards of judging… More

Feb 10 Anchoring Our Hearts to Him / Matthew 6:25-34

Brad Bell

When our eyes move to the things of this world, our hearts follow. When our hearts begin to drift away from God to the things of this world, anxiety comes because life is unpredictable.

Feb 3 What Do You Treasure? / Matthew 6:19-24

Pete Hingano

Whatever demands our heart and whatever we desire will be what we are devoted to and ultimately serve. As Christ-followers we like to say we value God, but our actions often say otherwise.

Jan 6 The Sin Beneath the Symptoms / Matthew 5:27-37

Mike Slayden

In this message we will look at how Jesus reinterprets Mosaic Law and ups the ante for what the life of a true follower of God looks like. The law was never meant to be obeyed mindlessly to check a box or appear good to others. Instead, Jesus changes the focus from the external behavior to the heart… More

Dec 30 2018 Salt, Light and Law / Matthew 5:13-26

Chris Schultz

Jesus didn’t come to abolish the law as if it doesn’t matter. He came to fulfill the law. If we are not living in obedience, it’s not a matter of modifying our behavior; it’s a matter of the heart. Out of the understanding of the fullness of Christ and the humility of what He has done for us, we… More
