Go the extra mile to pursue peace.

  1. Don’t make it your job to be everyone’s judge. (Matthew 5:38-39)
  2. Go the extra mile when:

3. Peace brings healing to the relationship.

Matthew 5:38-42 New International Version (NIV)

Eye for Eye

38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’[a] 39 But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. 40 And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. 41 If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. 42 Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.

Jesus: Our Good Shepherd — Sermon Video

Psalm 23 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 23

A psalm of David.

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
    He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
    he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
    for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk
    through the darkest valley,[a]
I will fear no evil,
    for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
    they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me
    in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
    my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me
    all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
    forever.

What’s Coming Out The Pipe? — Sermon Video

Key Idea:

Your lifestyle is a reflection of your heart.

1) Purity is more than just physical action; it’s a heart matter.

2) Purity will come when you take care of the clogs and backups.

How do we do that?

     There is no substitute for knowing Your Bible.
       Prov 6:23-24, Ps 119:9-11

     Jesus wants to change your heart.
       Rom 6:13-14, Rom 12:1-2, Rom 13:14

So what?

What is coming out your pipe? What is coming out of your heart will impact your life.


Matthew 5:27-30 New International Version (NIV)
Adultery

27 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’[a] 28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.

The Playful Ones — Sermon Video

Pastor Amos shares his heart and vision for U18 Ministry using IMAGINATION, PLAY & STORY.

Luke 18:15-17 New International Version (NIV)

The Little Children and Jesus

15 People were also bringing babies to Jesus for him to place his hands on them. When the disciples saw this, they rebuked them. 16 But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 17 Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”
