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!
Just in case you were not with us last week, I’m very excited about this new year. In 2019 we are going to journey all the way through the Bible together.

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.
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…

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 . He teaches the Beatitudes: Blessed are the Poor in Spirit… those who mourn... When Jesus preached that sermon,…
Learning to Pray
Who are you? is the question. And until we understand both answers to that question our life will be stunted, frustrated, and dull. Both answers you say? Yes, both answers. One of them applies to ourselves, and one of them applies to the one we are addressing. If we do not understand who we are and if…
Back to the Basics
This study is about relationship. Don’t think of this as a study of someone who walked this earth 2018 years ago. Any study of Jesus is a relationship building study.
