The Kingdom Manifesto
Matthew 5:1-2
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
The most famous and misunderstood message of Jesus is The Sermon on the Mount. Some arrogantly assert that this sermon is their own personal code of ethics while others say it's an impossible standard that won't be kept until the future Kingdom Age. Matthew 5 through 7 are some of the most challenging, convicting and comforting chapters to be found in all the Bible. If you're ready to live a radically different life then hold on for the next several weeks as we explore this great sermon together.

Dwelling Gently in the Kingdom
Matthew 5:5
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
The terms Kingdom and Meekness don't seem to fit in the same sentence. But the kingdom Jesus rules is refreshingly different from any other. The future Kingdom Age on earth will be inhabited and regulated by those who are mighty in meekness!

What's the Shape of Your Heart?
Matthew 5:8
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
The tin man in the Wizard of Oz longed for a heart and finally received one in the end. But his was only mechanical. So many people live mechanistic lives even many of those who ­attend church. What is it to be "pure in heart"?

Making What Everyone Wants
Matthew 5:9
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
The heart cry of this war-torn planet is for peace. There are songs for peace, marches for peace and even bumper stickers for peace. Everyone wants it, everyone needs it, but it seem so elusive, so out of reach. Where does peace begin and how can God's kids become those who make peace?

Happy Are the Hassled
Matthew 5:10-12
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Hold on! Brace yourself! This beatitude seems displaced even more so than all the previous ones. Since when was persecution ever a blessing? Jesus seems to give value to even the ill-treatment of others IF it's for the right reason.

How to be Influential and Beneficial
Matthew 5:13-16
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Everyone Wants to "leave his mark" on the world - to be remembered or at least noticed for some contribution he or she made on society. Jesus wants us to do that all well.  He wants us to make an imprint on the footpath of life so that people will say, "Hey! Look! God's kids walked here!" The analogy Jesus used for this is salt and light. Let's see what it all means:

What Did Jesus Think About The Bible?
Matthew 5:17-18
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
The Bible, the Koran, the Targums, the Upanishads, the Book of Mormon - is there any real difference between them all?  Don't all these books say the same things in different terms?  What makes the Bible so special?  Let's get the answer from Jesus Christ Himself.

How Does Heaven Work?
Matthew 5:19-20
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Jesus often spoke about both heaven and hell with the same forthrightness as He would about any reality. Most everyone thinks they'll be in heaven. Will they? How does this eternity thing work anyway? How does one go to heaven? What will our status be once we get there?

Medicine for a Murderous Heart
Matthew 5:21-26
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Someone once said, "When angry, take a lesson from technology; always count down before blasting off."  Tragically many people don't.  Anger is quickly transformed into rage and rage can burn out of control into murderous hatred.  What's the answer for aggravation? According to Jesus it is reconciliation.

When Sex Becomes a Problem
Matthew 5:27-30
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
"It is with our passions, as it is with fire and water. They are good servants, but bad masters." Sir Roger L’Estrange (1616-­1704). Everyone reading this understands how easy it is to become enslaved by passionate desire.  How do we keep from letting sex become such a master?

Marriage as an Endangered Species
Matthew 5:31-32
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Warning: This message today will not be an easy one to deliver nor listen to. This issue is always confusing and painful... But it's because divorce and adultery have invaded our culture as well as the modern church in epidemic proportions that the pain exists. Jesus' words are unmistakably clear.

How Good is Your Word?
Matthew 5:33-37
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
A promise is only as good as the integrity of the person making it. Because human nature is flawed in this regard, contracts are necessary. Lets consider today, the sanctity of a promise and how our word can become our bond.

Revenge! Sweet Revenge!
Matthew 5:38-42
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
When properly practiced, Christianity is the most counter-cultural lifestyle in existence. Nowhere is this distinctness seen more clearly than in these verses of the Sermon on the Mount. Nowhere is our need for the Holy Spirit’s power more obvious. These verses make perfect spiritual sense in light of the fact that the fruit of the Spirit is love!

The Truth About Love and Hate?
Matthew 5:43-48
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Can you think of someone in your life who really bugs you? That person is your antagonist-always has some ill-spoken word or body language that is not favorable towards you. How do you handle such people? Rather than dreaming up ways to slowly torture them with pain, Jesus tells us to do something that goes against our natural impulses - love them!

The Genuine Christian Life: Giving
Matthew 6:1-4
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Genuine is a word we like. It speaks of being solid and real as opposed to phony and superficial. In the next few paragraphs of the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus addressed genuineness in three areas.

The Genuine Christian Life: Praying
Matthew 6:5-8
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
When you think about a Christian activity or a Christian discipline, certainly prayer comes to mind. One of the first things any believer is encouraged to do is to pray. In His famous sermon, Jesus has a lot to say about communicating to God. What He says may surprise you - it's not the stuff found in most books I've ever read about prayer.

Pray This Way - Part 1
Matthew 6:9-10
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
This is the most familiar prayer of any in the world! It is memorized and repeated by millions. But rather than a piece of liturgy, it was intended to be a model of what genuine Christian prayer should be like. The first part focuses on God (vv 9-10); the second part focuses on us (vv 11-13). Notice that in this prayer Jesus not only gives us a pattern for prayer, but He also gives us a greater vision of the God we're praying to.

Pray This Way - Part 2
Matthew 6:11-13
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Think of it we have a God that tells us to ask Him for things that we need - and He will provide for us! How can we lose? Only if we never ask. And if we never ask, we'll never receive. Let's get some fresh insight into talking to God about ourselves, it can be liberating!

Fasting? Who Does That Anymore?
Matthew 6:16-18
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Face it - food is a big deal! It's part of the basic sustenance of life. Why then would anyone want to give it up? Could there be a reason, besides losing weight, to not eat for a period of time? These three verses help us to understand.

Owning and Being Owned
Matthew 6:19-24
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Many measure the value of an individual by what a person owns. That thinking creates a "keep up with the mentality. As one person put it, "It is difficult to save money when your neighbor keeps buying things you can't afford!" But Jesus measures your value by who or what is owning you.

The Woeful World of Worry
Matthew 6:25-34
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
"Worry is the only game in which, when you guess right, you don't feel any better!"  Right on! Worry saps life out of any project or any relationship. Worry isn't the same as genuine concern. According to Jesus, worry is really wasting today's time to clutter tomorrow's opportunities.

Can a Christian Be a Critic?
Matthew 7:1-6
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Now here's an example of the Sermon on the Mount being the most widely known, but least understood of Jesus' messages. How often have you heard these verses quoted whenever someone is confronted about an issue in their lives - any issue? Some think it means Christians should never evaluate and think with discernment. Far from it - let's clear up the issue.

Talking to the God Who Answers Prayer
Matthew 7:7-12
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Did you know that your personal prayer life is not all that personal?  Rather, the answers that come to you from such a gracious heavenly Father are to be examples for our gracious treatment of others.  The Golden Rule (v. 12) is based on the Silver Promise of answered prayer (vv. 7-11).

Wolves That Seem to Be Sheep
Matthew 7:15-23
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Anyone can say, "Baabhh" like Sheep and still not be one. Were told to watch out for such. There will be "false prophets" who will distort the notion of the narrow gate. They will seek to broaden it or narrow it down to their narrower system, thus confusing people. "The history of the church has been a long and dreary story of false teachers," wrote John Stott. Jesus surely anticipated this would happen and tells us what to do about it.

When Lips and Life Do Not Agree
Matthw 7:21-23
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Words - so powerful and often so persuasive. They can move nations (think of Churchill), convince juries (think of the 0.J. trial), and delight a young couple (think of wedding vows). But when we face God, He will have some words to say as well. At that time there better be more than words to bring as evidence of our relationship with Christ.

How to Build a Solid Life
Matthew 7:24-29
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
A storm will reveal what any structure is made of. The casual observer may not notice any difference between two homes in the same neighborhood but wind, rain and flood will tell all. Often a storm of crisis or calamity betrays what manner of person we are.  How solid is your life?
