    The Beatitudes :: THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT

    The Beatitudes :: THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT

    Presented at Curwensville Alliance on 8/2/20 by Pastor Steve Shields.







    In this podcast, Pastor Steve discusses the many misconceptions concerning The Beatitudes. He will layout what Jesus said in The Sermon on the Mount when He gave The Beatitudes.















    Below is the benediction that sums up the podcast.







    You are blessed when you realize you have nothing before God and are completely dependent on his grace and mercy. You are blessed when you struggle in your recognition of the evil of this world and it causes you to mourn. You’re seeing clearly, understanding that the only solution is God’s goodness. You are blessed because you have stopped clamoring for your rights and you’ve begun trusting God – and you’re finding more than you would have hoped for. You are blessed because you have a sincere hunger and desire to be a better person – to be “right” before God. And God has made that happen because the desire itself was a prerequisite. You are blessed because you have been shown mercy. You’ve indicated that you understand that God’s mercy is what you must rely on. And it holds you and sustains you. And you are blessed because you have been cleansed and refined by God himself, made pure in heart – finding meaning and purpose in life. You are blessed because God has called you to join him in his mission of reconciling the world to himself. And you find happiness as a co-worker with Christ in the kingdom, helping others find what you have found: Peace with God. And you are blessed because you are willing to courageously stand in the gap, showing the kingdom of God to a world that needs this blessing. Take this blessing as you go from here today, in Christ’s name, Amen

    In this introductory podcast, Pastor Steve goes over the value of the Sermon on the Mount.







    As we go through the Sermon on the Mount in this series, we will see how Jesus addresses “Soul Questions” as He resists the way the world views life with this memorable Sermon ton the Mount.















    What are some of those questions? Why can’t I find lasting happiness? Why can’t I be the person I should be? How can I live above the kingdom of this world?







    In this podcast, Pastor Steve asks us to review these questions and prepare our hearts for the words that Jesus speaks through the Sermon on the Mount.

If we follow the pattern God lays before us we can see how important it is to pursue meaningful relationships, forgive personal grievances and restore lost relationships.

    The Priest Who Substitutes, Atones and Purifies :: PATTERNS

    The Priest Who Substitutes, Atones and Purifies :: PATTERNS

    Presented at Curwensville Alliance on 6/28/20 by Pastor Steve Shields.







    When you think of a priest, what comes to mind?







    The role of a priest is to facilitate the relationship between the people of God and God.







    In this podcast, Pastor Steve will show us the priestly patterns of Jesus. Jesus is the Great High Priest, and as such He gives us a pattern to follow.















    How do we follow this pattern in our own lives? We can help others in their relationship with God, intercede for others, help others to connect with God, be empathetic and gracious towards others, and live well.
