    Matthew: Come Meet the King - Fasting for an Audience of One (Matthew 6:16-18)

    Matthew: Come Meet the King - Fasting for an Audience of One (Matthew 6:16-18)

    Steve Smith :: Creekside Church :: Sunday, May 31, 2020

    In today’s culture, fasting for health reasons is acceptable, but fasting for religious reasons is just weird. Temporarily redirecting our hunger to a focus and devotion to God is best understood by people familiar with their standing before Him. Steve Smith’s message from Matthew 6:16-18 highlights two contrasting forms of fasting, the kind practiced by those who make a public display of it and those who fast for an audience of One. Steve’s message is followed by announcements and a tribute to Creekside’s 2020 graduates.

    Matthew: Come Meet the King - For His Ears Only (Matthew 6:5-15)

    Steve Smith :: Creekside Church :: Sunday, May 24, 2020

    Jesus taught us to pray both secretly and sincerely. From Matthew 6:5-15, a passage that includes the Lord's Prayer, Steve Smith preaches on these two prayer principles in order to avoid hypocrisy and live righteously in God’s presence for His ears only. Steve's message follows several announcements by Alan Crim.

    Matthew: Come Meet the King - For His Eyes Only (Matthew 6:1-4)

    Steve Smith :: Creekside Church :: Sunday, May 17th, 2020

    “Beware of practicing your righteousness before men to be noticed by them... when you give to the poor, do not sound a trumpet...” In Steve Smith’s message from Matthew 6:1-4, Jesus teaches a for-God’s-eyes-only principal of righteous living and the practice of righteous giving—the kind that’s done in secret—by those living in the presence of God. Jesus prohibited hypocrisy and promoted secrecy in our charity. Steve’s sermon follows several announcements by Alan Crim and a remembrance of Creekside’s Ruben Martinez who recently sacrificed his own life to save another. This was our first public service held at Creekside since the COVID-19 outbreak encouraged public church meetings to close in March.

    Matthew: Come Meet the King - Love Your Enemy (Matthew 5:43-48)

    Matthew: Come Meet the King - Love Your Enemy (Matthew 5:43-48)

    Steve Smith :: Creekside Church :: Sunday, May 10, 2020

    “You have heard... 'love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies…" In Matthew 5:43-48, Jesus contrasts two approaches to dealing with our enemies. From Pastor Steve's message we see that the Scribes and Pharisees of Jesus' day taught restrictions on love and expansion of hate, while Jesus made clear that kingdom righteousness extended to loving our enemies as well as our friends. Steve also challenges us toward 4 responses to Christ’s command to love our enemies. Steve's message follows a video and word honoring mothers on Mothers' Day, as well as a few other announcements.

    Matthew: Come Meet the King - Honesty & Humility: Endanered Virtues (Matthew 5:33-42)

    Steve Smith :: Creekside Church :: Sunday, May 3, 2020

    Jesus taught followers to "make no oath at all…” and to "not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also.” Jesus’ teachings in Matthew 5:33-42 weren’t a ban on all oaths or self-defense, but rhetorical overstatements designed to help us evaluate our priorities. In Pastor Steve’s message Jesus reveals two additional manifestations of kingdom righteousness—one declaring truth and the other denying self—that challenge and compel believers to greater obedience as well as call unbelievers to repentance.
