Dangerous Living

Topic: General Verse: Matthew 5:3

BEWARE OF THE CHURCH!
“Dangerous Living”

Pastor Duane Cross | 01.25.15

 

A Commitment to Kingdom Living:

We believe that God is calling us to be a Kingdom Church as described in the Beatitudes (Matthew 5: 1-12). This includes coming to Jesus as broken sinners in need of God’s amazing grace. It means being transparent, honest, authentic people who come to the Savior “just as we are.” It means being accepting and loving and grace-giving to those who are hungering and thirsting after righteousness. It means living our lives in total submission to our King, Jesus Christ.


THREE CHARACTERISTICS OF A KINGDOM CHURCH



I. BROKENNESS

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” - Matthew 5:3 (NIV)

 

II. POVERTY

“A Begging Dependence”

“I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.” - Luke 18:14 (NIV)

 

III. GRACE

“But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions - it is by grace you have been saved.” - Ephesians 2:4-5 (NIV)

 

“Blessed are the poor in Spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.” - Matthew 5:3 (NIV)
