Brent Smith: Discipleship, Difficulties and Demons | Matthew 8:14-34

Jesus simply asks His disciples, ‘Why are you fearful?’ Now we can all think of at least a few reasons why fear might get the better of us. But though the storm is raging, Jesus is at rest. With Jesus in the boat, we don’t need to fear! Though trials will come, He will not let us drown. We need to take confidence in that.

Building On The Right Foundation | Matthew 7:21-29

Have you surrendered to Jesus? The day we stand before Jesus does not need to worry us or bring apprehension in our life. If you’ve accepted Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, the one who paid the penalty for your sins, then you are His.

Right Route, Wrong Root | Matthew 7:13-20

The root determines the fruit. If the root is bad, the fruit cannot be good. If a person is truly rooted in Christ, then good fruit is going to come. And these things become tests or indicators of where a person is at.

How To Treat Others | Matthew 7:1-12

The problem with the human heart is that we tend to think of ourselves as much better than we truly are, overlook sin in our lives, but be drawn to see the sin in others. For us to live the life that Jesus is laying out in the Sermon on the Mount, the Kingdom Way, we need help! If we’re going to live a life that’s growing in righteousness, walking in obedience, then we need to look to the Lord.

Why Worry? | Matthew 6:25-34

Stop worrying about your little kingdom, and start living according to His Kingdom. Put your eternal rewards ahead of anything this world can offer. When you get your perspective straight, you’ll see that the things you’ve been worrying about really are quite small and insignificant in light of Him.

Where Is Your Treasure? | Matthew 6:16-24

Jesus shows us that we cannot serve both God and money. We like to think we can have a healthy compromise, but one master will always prevail. We all have a choice to make. Who are you serving today?

Be Perfect? | Matthew 5:43-48

We don’t have to feel beat down and offended by threats or hurts against us if we are truly following Jesus and allowing Him to make us new. Be who He has made you to be, perfect and mature – a child of God who resembles your Heavenly Father rather than the god of this age.

Living A Life of Sincerity and Surrender | Matthew 5:33-42

God is not expecting us to be sinlessly perfect, though we should never think there’s a valid reason to succumb to sin. But what God does desire for us to be be moving on into maturity. Allow the Lord to keep perfecting you. This is the mark of the mature believer.
