Manifesto (noun): a statement declaring publicly the intentions, motives, or views of its issuer.
Jesus came on a mission with a message of "Follow Me". He promises not only a new life, but a new way of living in the here and now. A life that transforms and transcends. Even so, we all have questions about the details of following him. How do I really follow Jesus everyday? How does following Jesus affect my relationships, my finances, my attitude, my fears - you know, all of life? Jesus had a lot to say in his famous Sermon on the Mount; on what it means to follow him in the here and now. Among Jesus' teaching, the Sermon on the Mount is perhaps the most beloved, the best known and the least understood. What does it mean to say "I follow Jesus?" Join us as we discover the life changing words of Jesus. January 5th - June 1st
"You have heard that it was said, 'You shall not commit adultery.' But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into hell. And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body go into hell.
Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.
"I have made a covenant with my eyes; how then could I gaze at a virgin?
if my step has turned aside from the way and my heart has gone after my eyes, and if any spot has stuck to my hands,
"If my heart has been enticed toward a woman, and I have lain in wait at my neighbor's door,
For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin.
"You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his male servant, or his female servant, or his ox, or his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor's."
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
