God would have us enjoy the riches of His Kingdom and Jesus warns us of the soul impoverishing anxiety and worry that the world offers us. In Jesus' Sermon he goes to the heart of the matter and He challenges us to question where our treasures are.

In the sermon on the Mount Jesus gives us this wonderful teaching on prayer. He first teaches us to be sincere in our prayer and then He teaches us how to pray. As we look at His instruction together my hope is that we be called to a life of prayer.

This week’s installment of the “Heart of the Matter” closes out chapter five with a message on Surpassing Love. Jesus challenges our ideas on relationships and retaliation. He calls us to speak the truth in love, deal with offenses in love and even love our enemies. These attitudes and actions then reflect the heart of our King and become the proof to the world that we are citizens of the kingdom of heaven

This week we continue in the Sermon on The Mount with Jesus’ words about divorce. This is the third illustration of how those who think that they are righteous are in-truth unrighteous in their hearts. Jesus is focusing our broken relationships that come from anger, bitterness, unwillingness to forgive, lust and adultery. Divorce and broken promise follow. Each of these destroy relationships. The kingdom of heaven values loving and growing relationship and so should we.

This week, Jesus continues to reveal to us one of the most important teaching of the Bible, the doctrine of sin. We do not like to talk about this, think about this, and definitely hear about this doctrine. Here in the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus makes it clear that all of us have sinned in the worst ways. Most people think that they are above sin, especially grievous sins like murder and adultery. But Jesus tells us that we have all committed murder and adultery in our hearts. At the same time, He calls us to living like citizens of the Kingdom of Heaven - forgiven and pure.

We continue our series of messages from the Sermon on the Mount. We will look at the first 3 illustrations that Jesus gives us to his statement in Matthew 5:20 that, "unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Scribes and Pharisees you will never get into the kingdom of heaven.” That was a radical statement that would shock all who heard it. This week we look at how Jesus points us to the heart of the matter.
