Sermon on the Mount (SOTM)
Pastor Chuck Wilson • Lower Lights Church • Sermon • • 214 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.

"An apple a day keeps the doctor away," but not when you have cancer. There are some folk remedies that do nothing to help you. There are others that do more harm than good. The Pharisees' folk remedy for sin was to obey the law, but their pretend perfection was a danger to their souls. Jesus tells us what we should really think about the law in his Sermon on the Mount.
Sermon on the Mount
Jesus' words in the sermon on the mount were counter cultural during His time. They continue to be counter coultural, yet we are to live by His words, still today. Today we look at Matthew 5:5 and discover that though the world says meekness is weakness, Jesus says the opposite is true. Meekness is power in control, but what does that look like?
