The Mission of God’s People (2008)

The church’s mission picks up where Jesus left off: “to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion” (Isaiah 61:2-3a). How we can proclaim the fear of God in such a way that causes people to break down and get right with God, if we haven’t gone through it ourselves?

Jesus’ warning, “Judge not, that ye be not judged,” addresses the fatal self-righteousness that will block us from seeking the kingdom of God, his righteousness, and the mission to which we are called. Instead of selling out to Jesus,  most of us, without even realizing it, approach church as if we’re sampling desserts at the grocery store. Are you crushed by how you’ve treated God?

Hindrances to the Narrow Path (2008)

Today’s broadcast was the last sermon in a series regarding the Sermon on the Mount. Pastor Ray focuses on how to find the narrow path, which is hidden. Once you find it, Jesus warns us of the hindrances to watch out for. I pray that this is a great encouragement to those who are fully seeking to serve and live for Jesus.
