Message: The Golden Rule

 

We’re all probably familiar with the Golden Rule.

Matthew 7:12:

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.

This is a very interesting statement by Jesus. It is an active way to express love.

Message: On Earth as it is in Heaven

In the Lord’s prayer, Jesus teaches us to pray, “Your kingdom come, you will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”

That is a very challenging and exciting prayer.

Message: On Earth as in Heaven

As we enter the Christmas season, we are reminded that God invaded the earth when Jesus was born in Bethlehem.

It doesn’t get a whole lot more radical than that!

This Sunday we are going to look at an aspect of the Lord’s Prayer where Jesus tells us exactly what we should be doing and thinking about.

To prepare, read Matthew 6:9-15.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Message: Thanksgiving & Gratitude

We just celebrated a holiday that is all about giving thanks and gratitude. It’s actually a great idea– and biblical, too! We are called to give thanks on a regular basis.

But, sometimes this can be challenging. We tend to struggle in this area (at least I do!).

This Sunday we are going to practice gratitude.

To prepare, read Matthew 26:26-27 and Psalm 100.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Message: Salt & Light-The Problem & Purpose

Jesus tells his disciples that they are to be salt and light in a decaying and dark world.

He also gives a warning about a problem that can hinder our saltiness and brightness.

Message: Salt & Light/Problem & Purpose

This week we will continue to ponder what Jesus was saying when he told his disciples, “You are the salt of the earth… You are the light of the world.”

We discovered that salt can represent purity, flavor, purification, thirst, and preservation. We have also seen that light comes from Jesus, and should be intentionally visible to everyone- to bring clarity, order, direction, and safety.

This week we will see the problem Jesus identifies in this passage and the purpose of being salt and light in the first place.

To prepare, read Matthew 5:13-16.

I also want to thank Michael and Tasha Hasty for opening their home for our potluck brunch after the service last week. It was a great tie with great people and great food!

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

What about light? What was Jesus telling his disciples to be and do?

To prepare, read Matthew 5:13-16.

I also want to remind you that we are having a potluck brunch after the service from 11:30-1:00 at the Hasty’s (2636 Wimbledon Pt Dr.)! Bring something to share if you can and enjoy being together.

Looking forward to Sunday!
