A True Christian Know How To Pray Part 2 – The Lords Prayer is a template on how to Pray properly. Christ gives us a guide on how to come before God in prayer. Matthew 6:9 shows us how we should address God, and why, along with why it is important to hallow his name.
A True Christian Know How To Pray – Prayer is a fundamental of the Christian walk, but are you doing it right? Christ outlines how we are to pray in Matthew 6 with the Lords Prayer, but first in verses 5-8 He gives some outlines that we need to consider when coming before God.
A True Christian will not seek to please others Part 2 – Nathan Tarrant looks at verses 2-4 of Matthew 6 in the second part of the sermon concerning practising righteousness before others and how we are to conduct ourselves as Christians when giving to others.
A True Christian will not seek to please others – Nathan Tarrant begins the second chapter of Christ’s sermon on the mount by looking at verse 1 of chapter 6 and explains what Christ means when He says that we need to beware of practising righteousness before others.
A True Christian Will Love Their Enemies – Christians are called to love their enemies, no excuses. Is this not a big ask? No. Nathan Tarrant explains not only why we must love our enemies but also how to love them. He also explains that there is a big difference between loving and liking and why we are not called to like everyone, but to love them.
A True Christian Will Deny Self –In this second sermon from Matthew 5:38-42 Nathan Tarrant shows Living Hope the 4 indicators of a true Christian. These four indicators are all about denying self and thinking of others. Because these are not natural habits to have and can only come from being born again, a person claiming to be a Christian must not have any problem having these indicators prominent in their life.
A True Christian Will Not Be Vengefu Matthew 5:38-42 is one of the most misunderstood and misquoted passages in the Bible. Nathan Tarrant explains what the Lord is actually saying when He addresses the issue of revenge by giving us three principles concerning how we react to this passage and what it is exactly talking about.
A True Christian’s Word is Enough – The scribes and the Pharisees had become so perverted in their oath making that Christ tells them in Matthew 5 : 33-37 to stop and simply allow their yes to mean yes and their no to mean no. The making of an oath is not wrong, but as Christians can you truly say that your word is enough? When you say you will do something do you do it, or do you have to back it up with false oaths that have no meaning whatsoever?
A True Christian Will Have Oneness With God – The scribes and the Pharisees had been perverting the law for their benefit and Christ gives his most direct challenge on the subject of divorce in Matthew 5:30-32. Why? Because divorce was never permitted by God and that is because it was always God’s intention for a man and woman to come together and be one flesh and for that to be an example for the relationship we are to have with Christ a relationship of oneness.
A True Christian Will Mortify Their Sin – Nathan Tarrant discusses how there are three aspects that make up our act of sin: The suggestion of sin, the taking pleasure in sin, and the consenting to sin. Christ addresses the suggestion of sin in Matthew 5:27-30 by showing that even if you simply give in to the suggestion of sin then you have given consent to it and the sin will be complete, therefore making it known to God in our heart.
