Daniel: Living life of faith in a faithless culture
Intro Our culture has become one of talking points where it is “us versus them” and neither side can meet in the middle. Jesus teaches us another way: Go out. Go out and share your testimony, go out and interact with your brothers, go out and share, go out and ask. Become the Word in body as well as…
Message today is How to Change the World in One Easy Lesson. I believe Jesus wants us to change the World. Look at the sermon on the Mount. Jesus is teaching the Sermon on the Mount in Matt 5-7 .

As people, it is apparent that we are remarkably bad at choosing people for the best reasons. We are predictably drawn to what we see, to the outward appearance. This is often the natural inception of our understanding of others, and this is not always a bad thing. However, we have to move to a much more accurate assessment of someone by viewing who they are in the inside. When we miss this, we end up with all kinds of trouble. We elect, hire, marry, reward attractive people, or people who perform well, but miss the much more important beauty of so many who may not have the appearance of others. In the same way, we have learned to have the outside of our cups clean and decorated in specific ways in order to be accepted.

The way of Jesus, of His Kingdom, sets us free from the tyrrany of personal vendetta. We are free to forgive and love and help people who hurt us, who wound our pride, and who persecute us, who anger us. We are free to give away what we have knowing that God, who owns everything, is able to provide and protect and repay so that there will always be, in the end, justice, though we may see much injustice around us. God knows. Remember, while being hurt, Jesus neither fought back, nor ran away, rather he absorbed the hurt and forgave those responsible. The Spirit of Jesus is within all those who follow Him, trusting Him, those who've been born from above. LORD, help us to be different than we are.

As Jesus was leaving his disciples, his final words to them were some of our favorites and some of those we seem to observe least successfully/completely. As Christ is now risen from the dead, his disciples have met, in obedience, where he told them to go, at a mountain in Galilee. There, he taught them once more. Jesus was a teacher. To teach is to cause to know. It is clear that Jesus imparted what they were to know. They knew what he wanted. His teaching was effective and efficient. CCLI Streaming License CSPL085064
