Welcome, Pat Abendroth, the lead teaching pastor at Omaha Bible Church as he walks us through the Rich, Young Ruler in Matthew 19:16-30 and reminds us how we are justified by faith alone in Christ Jesus alone.
“Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.” Colossians 3:13
Today we continue to put our church under the microscope of God’s word to see if our DNA is a match to the church Jesus founded and intended. In the book of Matthew we will find Jesus’ promise about His Church give rise to a command for His Church. This is a command that continues to be relevant to us today and one that must continue to shape who we are.
Your DNA explains who you are, how you are built, what makes you who you are. But what is the Church’s DNA and what is the recipe for what it is and how it’s built. Pastor Dustin kicks off a new series that explores this theme.
The Sermon on the Mount is justly deemed one of the greatest sermons ever given, if not the greatest of all time. This sermon is inspirational and gives us a world to aspire to. But there is more to it than that as it makes us think about why the world we live in is not the way it could be.
We have been forgiven of a monstrous debt of sin against God because Christ has lifted us up and made us righteous in God’s sight. And this should result in a grateful heart — a heart that is overflowing with joy and forgiveness towards others.
