Intro Sometimes life slows down and refuses to move. We feel stuck on pause. There is a gap between what God has promised and the circumstances we find ourselves. God doesn’t seem to wear a watch or seem to care much about our alarm that we have set up to tell him when and how things should run for us.…

The kingdom of God comes into being wherever the kingly authority of God is acknowledged. Although God is always sovereign, Scripture looks to a future “realm” or “reign” of salvation. This has come in Christ and yet will come in its fulness only when Jesus Christ returns.

The Sunday before the first Sunday in Advent is known as either Christ the King, the Reign of Christ, or the very prosaic Sunday next before Advent. When I was growing up it was also known as ‘Stir-up Sunday’, because in the Anglican tradition the collect appointed for the Sunday next before Advent is…
Behold, thou art called a Jew, and restest in the law, and makest thy boast of God, And knowest his will, and approvest the things that are more excellent, being instructed out of the law; And art confident that thou thyself art a guide of the blind, a light of them which are in darkness, An instructor…

Sermon on the Mount (SOTM)
Pastor Chuck Wilson • Lower Lights Church • Sermon • • 100 views • 42:28
Pastor Chuck starts a new sermon series about the “Sermon on the Mount”. He describes how Jesus uses “The Beatitudes” help to us redefine what God wants us to admire in the world. Pastor Chuck provides a unique concept for us to use the Beatitudes as “not the attitudes we should have, but the attitudes we should be.” This week, Pastor Chuck’s topic is “Blessed are the Poor in Spirit.” Pastor Chuck describes how being “blessed” is a continuous spiritual condition of spiritual prosperity (being rich in spirit), contentment, and satisfaction in your life, not a physical feeling or state of physical material possession. Pastor Chuck will explain “one who is ‘poor in spirit’ has humbly recognized they have a deep need for God because they know they lack His Holiness and have a need for His forgiveness, grace, and mercy, and need Him as a Savior.” Pastor Chuck encourages us to become more aware of our desperate everyday need for God and to invite Him into our lives more every day.
