We have been studying one of the most important and life changing passages of Scripture in the whole Bible...A Sermon spoken by Jesus Christ Himself... While living on this earth as a Human...
The Sermon on the Mount!
What Jesus has done in this sermon...Is take every thought and every action that you and I ever have... Good or bad...And measure the importance and impact of them... In His eyes...Based solely upon one thing... The deepest motivation of our heart!
We are in the middle of our study in one of the most important sections of Scripture in the Old and New Testaments... The Sermon on the Mount! So far Jesus has told us that...
Way too many Christians are focused on outward behavior (religion) and not the heart...
And unless we realize that...We truly are hopelessly selfish without Him...And our actions are hollow and meaningless without the REAL love that only HE can give to us...We are living an insincere and dark life that will end in damnation! The first few parts of the sermon have powerfully peeled back layers of religion in many of our lives... And left our souls bare!
This next section peels even another layer away...With such relevance...That I can just about guarantee it will affect everyone here drastically...With open hearts led by the Spirit... Let's delve in again!
To Judge Or Not To Judge?
We are on our fifth week exploring Jesus' Sermon on the Mount. We will delve into the next deeply probing section of how Jesus' taught we should be living out His Words. Jesus has just finished illustrating that the heart from which all of our actions stem, good and bad, shows the true condition of our souls. Now He begins to focus on the things which our misguided hearts will often latch onto instead of Him and His love.
In a continuation of the series on the Sermon on the Mount Pastor Doug explains how the Pharisees and scribes had twisted the law into an uncaring instrument for showing one's outward "righteousness" far from the guide for interacting with those around us in a caring manner it was meant to be. We still do the same thing today and just like the Pharisees of old we have missed the boat!
