The Sermon on the Mount
Who is this Man?
We're not strong enough to hold onto the cross in the storms of life; the gospel is that Jesus is holding on to me.
Founded on the Rock
Obedience doesn't always manifest itself in obvious ways, and so the counterfeit Christian may easily pretend to be real.
It is a false peace when the word of the Lord is not bringing us to a genuine peace with God.
There is earthly wisdom growing in bitter envy and strife, and there's heavenly wisdom, pure, peace-loving, submissive, full of good fruit, compassionate and sincere.
The Golden Rule
The golden rule is in fact unique to Christianity, given the theological and moral framework of the Bible which defines its parameters.
Asking and Receiving
Coming under God's fatherhood, we have the right of petition, and all necessary gifts He will grant.
To judge others by human standards is both hypocritical and self-blinding. Whoever judges by the word of God begins his censure with himself.
Lamps, Masters and Money
A healthy mind and heart is governed by God and His Word. It’s full of light, right thinking, and righteousness.
Treasure in Heaven
Many Christians have a false and misguided vision of escape from the world and its activities. On the other hand, Christians easily become consumed by the concerns and pursuits of the world.
Deliver us from Evil
Moral evil is defined by modern humanists not as an offense against God’s order, but as things which are harmful or unpleasant.
Forgive Us Our Debts
This petition is a Jubilee prayer. In the Old Testament, God set aside the seventh year and the fiftieth year for the cancellation or forgiveness of debts, and the release of slaves.
