Kevin Harvey, regional director of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and chaplain of the Philadelphia 76ers, draws lessons from Acts 4:13 about courage, supernatural ability, and the recognizable way we are changed when we’ve been with Jesus. Message delivered 6/21/2009.
In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said, “Unless your righteousness is better than the righteousness of the teachers of religious law and the Pharisees, you will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven.” So how can we break out of the box of law and religious rules? As Paul told the Philippians: “I didn’t want some petty, inferior brand of righteousness that comes from keeping a list of rules when I could get the robust kind that comes from trusting Christ—God’s righteousness.” Message delivered 6/14/09.
Jesus told his listeners, “You are the salt of the earth” and “You are the light of the world” in the Sermon on the Mount. But our saltiness is worthless unless it is added to the world to season and preserve, our light is wasted if it’s hidden. Message delivered 6/7/09.
