Sermon on the Mount
Today we start the 3 topics that Jesus discusses as our Christian service to God; giving, prayer and fasting. Jesus explains that these things inthemselves are not bad at all in fact what we should do. The issue is that we often do the right things but with the wrong motives. It goes back to the heart. Won't you prepare your heart in prayer before you listen today? May the Lord speak to you today as you listen!

Gospel of John
God really knows who believes and what’s really in our hearts.

Sermon on the Mount (SOTM)
Pastor Chuck Wilson • Lower Lights Church • Sermon • • 241 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.
Where do we start? 10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. 10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those who do His commandments; His praise endures forever. What do we tend to fear? The unknown…
Is baptism for physical cleansing? Is baptism a work that earns our way into Heaven? Is baptism in order to get salvation or is it because of salvation? Why was Jesus baptized?
Sermon on the Mount
Today we recorded the communion led by Pastor Daryl, a testimony by our own Darby Whatley and message by Pastor Chase. The message today comes from Matthew 7:15-23; False prophets and False Disciples. May we be examining our hearts and lives through this passage.
How long does it take to build a solid trusting relationship with someone? Does it take a little amount of time or a lot of time? What if I told you that you had a half hour to get to know a complete stranger and that after that half hour you would be required to make a decision about whether or not…
The Changing Times 21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy…
Jesus holds the power to fix our lives. He rules, even over sickness and death. But we need to engage in an "instigating action," a demonstration of our faith that Jesus does, indeed, rule in our lives. We see a model of that in both Jairus and the anonymous woman who touches Jesus's cloak on the way. What else can we learn from these two?
Design for Discipleship
Today Pastor Chase continues the series on "Your life in Christ" and discusses the Work of Christ. Follow along and discover how Christ accomplishes this work through His status as Prophet, Priest and King.
1 On that day Jesus went out of the house and was sitting by the sea. 2 Such large crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat down, while the whole crowd stood on the shore. 3 Then he told them many things in parables, saying: “Consider the sower who went out to sow. 4 As he sowed, some…
