    You are the Light of the World (Sermon on the Mount Series - Matthew 5:14-16)

    You are the Light of the World (Sermon on the Mount Series - Matthew 5:14-16)

    When Christians begin living like Christians, it affects the world around them. We are light to a dark world. Jesus is the light of the world (John 8:12), and He is a great light that has come to those dwelling in darkness (Matthew 4:16).


    Because of Christ's work in those of us who are in Christ, we are now light, and we're to live as children of light. We are to have nothing to do with darkness because we've been delivered from its domain (Colossians 1:12-13). We who were once not just in darkness, but we were darkness, now have the glorious privilege to be light in the Lord. 


    Our text today is Matthew 5:14-16:
    You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven

    The Salt of the Earth (Sermon on the Mount Series - Matthew 5:13)

    The Salt of the Earth (Sermon on the Mount Series - Matthew 5:13)

    In this next episode of the Sermon on the Mount, we start with two common pictures we're all familiar with from everyday life. No matter your location in the world—you know what salt and light are. We are to be salt, and we are to be light or better to state as the scripture states - we ARE salt, and we ARE light. 


    We're going to take these one at a time, so today, we're just working through Matthew 5:13:


    "You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people's feet

    BITESIZE: Practical Tips to Overcome Self-Pity

    BITESIZE: Practical Tips to Overcome Self-Pity

    Self-pity is a selfish tendency that takes our eyes off Christ and puts them on ourselves. We forget “God works all things together for good to those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.” Are we able to give God “thanks in all things”?

    Blessed are Those Who are Persecuted (Sermon on the Mount Series - Matthew 5:10-12)

    Blessed are Those Who are Persecuted (Sermon on the Mount Series - Matthew 5:10-12)

    As we hunger and thirst for righteousness, it will lead us to be persecuted for righteousness' sake. A true Christian will suffer persecution in one form or another.


    Today we are on the eighth beatitude in Matthew 5:10-12:
    10 "Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 "Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. 12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
