Sermons on Matthew
Listen as Taylor Hammett, guest pastor from North End Collective, brings a message about being an apprentice of Jesus! Pastor Taylor speaks about how Jesus doesn’t just invite us to believe in Him or applaud Him for what He’s done for us, but to be more like Him in all aspects of our lives! So, who is Jesus calling you to become?
Many of us find ways to avoid being alone. But moments of solitude can be rich times of being fed by God. Student Pastor, Taylor Housel, looks at how Jesus sought out times alone with his Father and how you can purposefully pursue the same.
The new year is approaching, and with a new year, new changes are sought after for many of us. Similar to a car needing an alignment, we need maintenance, in the form of constant encouragement. Matthew 6:33 helps put perspective on seeking Him and encouraging us to be more like Jesus.
The birth of Moses was in the middle of a painful and difficult season for the Hebrews. Yet God was not absent from them. He was already unfolding a plan to deliver them.
Depression is like a cave. It is a dark place with no clear road map out and many pitfalls. To experience depression does not mean you aren’t loved, you don’t love God enough, or you aren’t saved. We are invited to bring our pain to Jesus because he knows how it feels and he can relate to us.
All creation brings pleasure to the heart of God. We must find moments to enjoy and marvel at creation. In doing so we marvel at the power and beauty of God.
Don’t believe that just because your foundation is Jesus that storms will not come. They come against everyone. Instead, take the words and teachings of Jesus and say “This is how I am going to make decisions in my life. This is what I am going to stand on.”
Sometimes we can cast judgement and not even realize we’re doing it. While it is natural to have an initial reaction when someone does something to harm us, offend us, or even talk bad about us, let’s change our perspective by incorporating these three ways to walk in the way of Jesus when it comes to judgement.
Do your actions matter? Yes they do. But motives, the stuff that is hidden, the stuff that can be deceptive, matters even more. Listen as we uncover three acts of righteousness to help us understand.
Instead of retaliation towards your enemies what if you gave them public praise? With God in your heart it is possible. Jesus has asked us to come at this world in a different perspective. Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.
We’re living through a time of uncertainty that can produce much anger. Jesus has something to say to help us grow to the next level of our faith and add healing to our relationships.
Am I willing to grow to the next level of my Christian walk? What does it look like for you to move to the next level with God? Trust God in his salvation. Rely on Jesus. Know Him, Trust Him, and feel the freedom when you do. Keep you eyes on Him. He is a loving father.
