    "Worry Wart"
    Matthew 6:25-34
     

    This is one of those sermons I would like to avoid. Most of us who are preachers, find that we are usually preaching to ourselves. In the context of today's text, I am especially preaching to myself. Confession is good for the soul, and if I am going to be honest, I must confess that one of the things I struggle most with is worry. Jesus specifically addresses the subject of worry in the Sermon on the Mount. Do you ever struggle with worry? Where does worry come from? Is it a sin for Christians to worry? What can we do about it? What does Jesus say to do about?

    “A Little Salt and a Little Light Make a Lot of Difference”

    We usually think of Jesus being a teacher, a rabbi, a prophet and a healer. However, we usually don't think of him as a "preacher" but he obviously preached to the crowds. The success of any gifted preacher lies in the ability to use simple, ordinary illustrations and object lessons that the average person can understand and relate to. Such is the case as Jesus begins his most famous sermon by talking about something that everyone was familiar with and understood. Salt and Light. Things so common that over 2000 years later, we as disciples and followers of Jesus living in 2017 can understand and relate to. This morning Jesus reminds us that WE are SALT - WE are LIGHT!

    Sermon on the Mount
    Dramatic Monologue
     

    This morning I will be presenting the Sermon on the Mount in Dramatic Monologue. The "Sermon" as recorded in Matthew 5-7 contains some of the most familiar teachings of Jesus. In this "Sermon" Jesus calls his followers to live the incredible ethic of love. Over the next several weeks, we will be looking at passages from the Sermon on the Mount and how they speak to us today. Over the next several months, we will be looking at the stories and parables from Matthew and the teachings of Jesus about the Kingdom of Heaven. The Sermon on the Mount will set the stage for the coming weeks and months. Today, imagine yourself as one of the people who gathered long ago on that hillside overlooking the Sea of Galilee as Jesus spoke these unforgettable words.
