Teaching on Sermons (Page 37)

Blessed Are the Despised

Luke 6:22-23 We are studying the beatitudes, which is the introduction to Jesus’ most well-known sermon.  The, this introduction to the sermon, I think, it my mind anyway, it’s been nothing short of revolutionary.  Not in the political sense, not in any social, economical, or political statement.  Any of that would be too shallow for this.  Jesus, this is revolutionary in the…

Blessed Are the Weeping

Luke 6:21 “Luke 6:21: Blessed are you who weep now for you shall laugh.”  Want to begin though, as we have been doing, by reading the whole section, the beatitudes in Luke’s gospel, “Luke 6:20-26.”  And, I think probably by now you ought to have these beatitudes memorized, because we keep reading it week after week.  And I, personally, never get tired…

Blessed Are the Hungry

Luke 6:21 Luke Chapter 6.  Today, we’re looking at the second beatitude in Luke’s account of the Sermon on the Mount.  We spent, as you know, the last two weeks on that first beatitude, “Blessed are you who are poor, you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God.”  And that really is the thesis verse for the beatitudes and…

Joy in the Wealth of Poverty

Luke 6:20 This morning, we’re really continuing a message we began last week.  We want to understand more fully, more completely what Jesus meant by what he said and implications for us.  It’s been 12 years since sociologist Christian Smith published his book called “Soul Searching: The Religious and Spiritual Lives of American Teenagers.”  The book came out in, back in 2005,…

Blessed Are the Poor

Luke 6:20 We are back in the Sermon on the Mount this morning in Luke’s account, so go ahead and turn there to Luke 6:20. We’re going to read that introductory portion again.  As we’ve said, the Sermon on the Mount is the most widely known of all Jesus’ teachings.  A very profound teaching, very searching, provoking in our hearts.  Because of…

How to Hear the Sermon on the Mount

Luke 6:20-49 How to Hear the Sermon on the Mount. It’s impossible to overstate the significance of the Sermon on the Mount. And in light of how significant it is, I feel,  personally I feel a twinge of nervous excitement in facing this portion of Scripture. It’s a daunting task because this teaching is so incredibly profound and searching. It’s so penetrating…

Jesus Ministers to the Masses

Luke 6:17-19 This happens to be the fourth pause that Luke has provided us, which is sort of a short summary and allows us to stop and ponder. Allows us to look at the big picture, reflect, before we wade deeply into the waters that are ahead in the Sermon on the Mount. We’ve just been through a study of the Apostles.…
