Gospel of Matthew – Blessed are the Persecuted

Our message is entitled Persecuted Christians and will come from Matthew 5:2-12. We’ll focus on the last two verses. This is the last of the beatitudes, so Jesus gave us a double saying, and encourages us to press on when we come into conflict with the world. I pray we will be challenged and encouraged by the words of our Lord. The sermon will…

Gospel of Matthew – Peacemakers

Our sermon continues from Matthew 5, we will arrive at verse 5:9 and will cover the concept of being peacemakers. How does peacemaking fit into the beatitudes, how does it model Christ, and what is our responsibility as peacemakers? We’ll cover all of that in the following sermon segments: Intro What is Peace? Being Peacemakers Why does Jesus say Peacemakers are God’s…

Gospel of Matthew – The Pure in Heart

This week’s message will be entitled “The Pure in Heart” and is taken from Matthew 5:8. We return yet again to our study of the beatitudes with this very stirring proclamation that men may see God. What a truth to ponder! But we do not always have such undivided attention and a heart that truly believes, what is it that we can…

Gospel of Matthew – The Mercy Test

Our sermon this week comes from the fifth beatitude found in Matthew 5:7. We will examine a lot of scripture this week as we enter “The Mercy Test.” This is a very convicting topic for me personally, and I pray it will be for you as well. Please pray that we would come with tender hearts to receive the Word of God…

Gospel of Matthew – Hunger and Thirst for Righteousness

Our sermon is entitled Hunger and Thirst for Righteousness and is the fourth beatitude, taken from Matthew 5:6. This message has at its core several challenging questions about our priorities. It is the culmination of the previous three statements by Jesus, and we will find great exhortation here. Our outline will be: Blessed Righteousness Exhortation How? Public reading: Psalm 107:1-9; Benediction: Matthew…

Gospel of Matthew – Meekness

This Lord’s Day we get to look at Matthew 5:5, the beatitude of meekness. How on earth do the meek gain the whole earth by inheritance, and what is it to be meek? These are our questions. We’ll ask two questions, first, what is it to be meek? Second, why do we inherit the earth, and during both we shall cover the…

Gospel of Matthew – Those Who Mourn

We come to the next beatitude, “blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” Here we discover the reality of Christian life – that though our burdens are lifted by the cross, we still mourn. And we mourn over the remaining sin in our lives, the sin all around us and the sin that so destroys. What does this look…

Gospel of Matthew – Poor in Spirit

Our message follows on from last week’s intro to the Sermon on the Mount. We get into the Beatitudes for the next eight weeks, a series of blessings pronounced by Jesus, and will begin with the first one here. Our sermon, then, is aptly entitled, Blessed are the Poor in Spirit. What does it mean, how does it apply, how does it launch into the…

Gospel of Matthew – Breaking the Status Quo: An Introduction to the Sermon on the Mount

This week’s sermon is a continuation of our study of the gospel of Matthew, but since it is a Fifth Sunday Topical, providentially, we have a topical sermon. In this message, we will introduce the Sermon on the Mount. The message is entitled “Breaking the Status Quo: An Introduction to the Sermon on the Mount” and is launching from Matthew 5:1-2. We will…

Gospel of Matthew – Follow Me

Our sermon is entitled “Follow Me” and will be taken from Matthew 4:12-25. As we move through the gospel verse by verse, here we encounter the calling of the first four disciples. This is an easily overlooked passage in the gospel of Matthew, the meat of the story of Christ’s introduction is over, and the Sermon on the Mount begins in the…
