    Are You Blessed?
    The Sermon on the Mount is probably the best known and most studied discourse in history. Pastor Chip looks closely at the Beatitudes and explains that they are not a list of rules for getting into Heaven but rather a description of what Christian life looks like. Jesus shows us that true blessings are usually the opposite of what the world thinks.

    Follow Me
    When Jesus calls his first four disciples, Peter, Andrew, James and John, he is not inviting them to "accept" him. He's calling them to follow; and it's not safe. He calls them to leave everything, including their comfortable, safe family and career, and to follow Jesus, even to death. He calls us in the same way. As Gary Haugen says, "safety kills," and Jesus says, "whoever would lose his life for my sake will find it."

    If…
    When Jesus is baptized the Father says out loud, "This is my beloved son." In the very next scene Satan tries to cast some doubt saying, "IF you are the Son of God, show some miraculous sign." Satan always tries to cast doubt on our trust for God, saying, "If..."

    My Beloved Son
    At the baptism of Jesus we find all three persons of the Trinity present. When Jesus comes up out of the water, God the Father says, "This is my beloved Son. With him I am well pleased." In our baptism we are united with Christ so that we hear God say to us, "you are my beloved in whom I am well pleased."

    Where Is the King?
    The wise men arrive from the east and ask only one question: Where is the king? That's the question that the whole book of Matthew attempts to answer and the question we should each be asking in our own life.

    The Family Tree
    In the genealogy of Jesus at the beginning of Matthew we discover that God has been at work through every generation to bring about His plan, even in the times that we would call "bad." Ultimately we find that Jesus, the long-promised and long-awaited Messiah, was born at just the right time, the Son of David (royalty) and the Son of Abraham (Jewish).

    What Do You Expect?
