This week, we begin a new sermon series: "Jesus Answers the Headline News." When we pick up the newspaper or turn on the news, we see an array of crises, from war to poverty, disease, politics, and more. How should followers of Christ respond to such challenging headlines?
Jesus came not to create a political dynasty but God's kingdom on earth. Through this sermon series, we are going to explore Jesus’ blueprint to change the world through transforming hearts. The core of this teaching can be found in Matthew 5-7 known as the Sermon on the Mount, and the heart of this message is outlined in part of the Lord's Prayer: "May your kingdom come; may your will be done; on earth as it is in heaven" (Matthew 6:9-13). These are the values Jesus wanted to instill in his followers and wants to instill in our hearts.
The purpose of this series is not to provide all the answers but to open a dialogue on what Jesus calls us to do as individuals, members of society, and members of Brick Church. You might find things you agree with or disagree with in the sermon, but I hope you'll enter a conversation with us on Wednesday evenings so that together, as we wrestle over what it means to be a faithful disciple of Christ, we can grow stronger in our vision as a community to be Jesus' light for the world.
Amid the noise of the headline news, I hope you will hear the words Jesus came to broadcast, filling your heart with hope and God's vision for your life.
