Sermons from October 2017

Protecting Holy Longings

Matt 5:27-30 Jesus loves us. He really loves us. And, he tells us what he tells us in the Sermon on the Mount because he loves us and wants the best for us. This week, he protects the covenant of marriage by showing us that true righteousness, righteousness that surpasses that of the religious authorities, requires dealing with those steps that lead up to adultery, namely lust. It’s a tough word from Jesus, but he tells it to us because he loves us.

Quickly Deal With Anger

Matt 5:21-26 What does it look like to live Right-side up in an Upside-down world? Jesus, the relationship protector, will tackle six heavy topics to show concretely what it looks like for our right-relationships to surpass the Scribes. He begins by tackling anger. How are we to tackle anger? Quickly deal with it (key word = quickly).

Surpassing Righteousness

Matt 5:17-20 We enter back into the Sermon on the Mount this Sunday. What does it mean to live Right-side up in an Upside-down world? We see the preacher on the mount say in our text this week that it means that our righteousness must surpass that of the scribes & Pharisees. How can that be? Come Sunday to discuss this shocking statement.

Discipleship Through Relationships

Matt 28:16-20 This Sunday we finish our PBCC Family Values series looking at Discipleship through Relationships. At PBCC, we aim to be a discipling community because in the Great Commission (Matt 28:16-20), Jesus commands his followers to do one thing – make disciples. But, how do we make disciples? And, what is the nature of this discipleship? Join us as we discuss these questions this Sunday.

Participation in God’s Work

Eph 4:11-16 This Sunday we return to our PBCC Family Values series looking at Participation in God’s Work. The concept of God’s Work is easily misunderstood, so what do we at PBCC mean by God’s Work? What do we mean by Participation? And what does it look like for us at PBCC to Participate in God’s Work?
