SERMON: Blessed to Be a Blessing

PREACHED:  10/11/15
TITLE:  Blessed to Be a Blessing
TEXT:  Genesis 11:27 – 12:9
LOCATION:  24 Church – Pleasant View, TN

SYNOPSIS:  As the people of God, we have been blessed by God to be a blessing to the entire earth. Regarding Genesis 12:1-3,Tim Chester & Steve Timmis make the startling statement that, “It is impossible to overstate the importance of Genesis 12:1–3 in understanding the succeeding biblical narrative . . . In many respects, the rest of the Bible story can be read as an exposition of these verses, a demonstration of their accomplishment and fulfillment.”

SERMON: Jesus on Lust

PREACHED:  09/21/14
TITLE:  Jesus on Lust
TEXT:  Matthew 5:27-30
LOCATION:  24 Church – Pleasant View, TN

SYNOPSIS:  In the portion of the Sermon on the Mount known as “the antitheses” Jesus helps us to understand the true intent of the Old Testament Law. Both in Jesus’ time and our time we are prone to follow the form of rules but to forsake the heart behind those rules. When it comes to sexual sin, Jesus says it’s not just our actions but also our thoughts that matter. These are hard words, but there is hope! We must fight lust with drastic action. And drastic action is not just a new strategy for avoiding temptation, but heart surgery. Faith in the gospel is heart surgery we need!
