Prayer. While thousands of pages have been written about it, Jesus preferred to offer a simple example with a few warnings. Join us in this week’s study of the Sermon on the Mount as we look at what Jesus taught about praying in Matthew 6:5-15.

Short version: keep it simple, and make sure you remember what you’re doing. When we pray, we’re praying to the Father, not playing to the crowd.

Talk is cheap! Jesus doesn’t let us off the hook with such a low price. He calls us to pay attention to what and why we speak. Join us as we discuss Matthew 5:33-6:4 when Jesus deals with oaths and our desire to be recognized by others. Jesus again gets straight to the heart of the matter and doesn’t let us wiggle away from his teaching. We aren’t supposed to be like the world!

Remember, if you’re near Dickson, TN, you can catch us on the air at WDKN 1260 AM or 101.5 the One FM on Sunday afternoons at 4pm. Next week’s show? Jesus on prayer in Matthew 6:5-16.

Get ready to be challenged by the words of Jesus as we continue our discussion on the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5:13-32.

Jesus talks about the nature of discipleship, his purpose in relation to the law, and the heart of the matter.  We discuss what it means to be salt and light and the permanence of God’s plan. Plus, we’ll step on all of our toes as we talk about anger and more!

Most people can name many of the miracles of Jesus, but very few people can name any of his sermons! We’re going to spend the next several episodes discussing Jesus as a preacher. What was his message? Who did he talk to? What did he have to say? How was his preaching different than (or the same as) ours?

The Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5-7 is one of the most significant passages of scripture. Lesson 22 will probably take us about 8 weeks to work through on the show…so join us for the ride!

This week we begin our study by looking at his preaching and the beatitudes in particular. Want to study ahead? Read Matthew 5-7!
