Hear and Do

Jesus teaches in the Sermon on the Mount that living for God is about more than the rules. The rules they knew so well had purposes behind them. Understanding those purposes better helps us understand Him better. Living those purposes out helps us to be more of who He created us to be.  


Jesus begins the Sermon on the Mount by describing people who are blessed in various ways. Being blessed is not about how well life’s circumstances are going. It is a result of God being sovereign in your life.  


As we begin a new year, we take a look at how Jesus started His ministry. Following His example will help us begin well.

God With Us

Matthew begins his gospel with the genealogy of Jesus to tell the human side of His birth story. He then moves to the fulfillment of prophecy to emphasize the divine part of the story. Jesus comes to earth to be God with us.  

Family Tree

We begin a study of the Gospel of Matthew this week with a part of the book that is sometimes overlooked: the Genealogy of Jesus. God orchestrates this family tree from an unlikely cast of characters to bring our Savior to earth.
