Lustful Eyes

Posted in Christ by LifeSpringChurch on January 29th, 2017

This sermon looks at a second of the "antitheses," that section of the Sermon on the Mount where Jesus repeatedly said, "You have heard it was said.....but I say to you."  In each of these antitheses Jesus explains that God's right intentions regarding the commands had been perverted.  Today's sermon explores, "You have heard that it was said, 'Do not commit adultery,' but I say to you, don't even lust."

Simmering Anger

Posted in Christ, Sermon on the Mount by LifeSpringChurch on January 22nd, 2017

The text for this sermon come from Matthew 5:21-26 and is the opening of a section of the Sermon on the Mount called the "antecedents" because Jesus repeatedly says, "You have heard it said before that...." followed by Jesus' expostion of what God's real and true intention was vastly different than what the religious leaders were saying.  Today's sermon examines the issue of simmering anger.  "You have heard it said that you shall not kill, BUT I say to you, don't even be angry with your brother (simmering anger) or call him a moron."

A City on A Hill

Posted in Jesus, praise, teaching by LifeSpringChurch on January 16th, 2017

This sermon comes from Matthew 5:13-16 and is the place where Jesus says to his disciples, "You and you alone are salt and light."  The sermon looks at how being salt and light reshapes a person's life in their discipleship to Jesus.  By being salt and light we bring glory and praise to God.  This is our divine purpose.

This sermon looks at the second four of the eight beatitudes in Matthew 5:  merciful, pure in heart, peacemakers, and the persecuted.  The beatitudes, in sum, give a picture of the transformation that occurs to those who take discipleship to Jesus seriously.

Realizing Our Need for God

This is the first of two sermons on the Beatitudes and the gateway to a Winter/Spring series on the teachings of Jesus from the Gospel of Matthew.  Each of the Beatitudes serves like a link in a chain, each link dependent on the previous.  The text for the sermon is Matthew 5:3-10.
