This Sundays message comes from Matthew 7:13-23. We continue to discover the richness of the sermon on the mount. In these verse Jesus calls us to take care in our life choices. In particular we are to choose to enter the narrow gate, to treat others with kindness and grace. We are also to choose our teachers carefully for there are many false teachers and we are to choose to walk daily with Christ. May God give each of wisdom that we will daily make Kingdom choices.

We live in such a turbulent time where the road ahead seems uncertain. But we have a wonderful hope to celebrate! This Sunday we will look at Jesus’ promise to us revealing the power of persistent prayer. In this sermon Jesus has been revealing to us how radically different the life of the disciple is from the world. As we consider these things we are left wondering how can I live up to these expectations. Jesus answers that question by saying “Your Father knows how to give you good gifts.” He is our sources of righteousness and hope. As we journey in faith, we are never alone.

This week we move to Matthew chapter 7 to work through the final major division of the Sermon on the Mount. The message from the first verses I have titled, The Splinter and the Log. Jesus calls us to have a caring rather than a critical heart towards others. Jesus’ teaching challenges us to face our own judgmental hearts with the words, “Judge not, or you will be judged.” How do we live out that command? How do we protect relationships and the Gospel. Again, Jesus goes with to the Heart of the Matter.

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.

The invitation to sit at the Lord's Table is an invitation that comes by grace. We don't deserve a place, but God has invited us to a seat at His table that we might be sons and daughters of the King!

In our Biblical consideration of the "Lord's Supper," we frequently talked about the importance of preparation as we come to the table. One preparation and prerequisite discussed is Baptism.
Baptism is also an ordinance that the Lord has given the Church. Therefore, it is important that we also understand it's meaning and relationship to the Lord's invitation to, "Come to the Table."

When Jesus instituted the Lord's Supper, He took the bread and broke it saying, "This is My body which is broken for you." In this message we look back to John chapter 6 where Jesus identifies Himself as the Bread of Life, and in His teaching we discover that He satisfies us, sustains us and saves us.
