As we conclude our walk with kings in the month of December, we will take some time to consider our Savior Jesus Christ, who was “born king of the Jews.”
As the nation once again is in the wake of more tragic violence, it’s important to take a moment and consider how we as Christians should respond to that violence. When we think about what Jesus taught concerning violence, it is clear that we should respond with love and prayer.
We serve a great God who has given us ample reason to come to him (Heb. 10:19-25). He also wants us to encourage one another, since we all know that a day is coming for which we must be prepared. Judgement Day is real, and we must be ready for it.
Today we continue studying the Sermon on the Mount, looking at Jesus teaching from Matthew 6, that we should store up our treasures in heaven rather than on earth. I hope you will grab a Bible and turn to Matthew 6 and join me in this time of Bible Study together.
In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus spends a great amount of time compared to other sections talking about the topic of prayer. He first teaches his disciples how not to pray, followed by a model prayer that we can use as an example even today, 2000 years later. Please grab a Bible and join me for this study from Matthew 6:5-15.
Lesson Text: Matthew 5:43-48
Jesus teaches in the Sermon on the Mount that while it may feel natural to us to only show love to those who love us in return, we are called upon to show love for everyone, even our enemies, just as God loves the good and the evil. In this lesson, we take a look at what Jesus means when he tells us to love our enemies. Grab a Bible and study with me.
