"Perfection...Matters of the Heart."
August 14th, 2017 -Pastor Keith Cromie Ever ask yourself, perhaps in a moment of exasperation, “What does God want from me anyway?” You are trying your best to be the kind of person that God wants you to be. Then some jer…, er, fellow human being acts in a hurtful way. Then the pressure is on. How will you react? Will you stew and steam behind the scene? Will you give that person a piece of your mind that you can ill afford to lose? We live in a broken world. You don’t need me to tell you that. You don’t need anyone to prove that. We simply consider our own performance and realize we’ve got a long way to go. But what is the standard? What does God expect of us? We will be answering that question from the teaching of Jesus in His Sermon on the Mount (text included below). Jesus has been challenging our basic assumptions about our views on righteousnesswhile at the same time laying out the path that he himself will follow. What a teacher! What an example! What a Savior!view more
