Living With a Single Focus  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 6: 24–34
Summary: Jesus recognizes that many listening to him are living lives of worry and despair, and points out that they are looking at things the wrong way. He offers a corrective when he tells them, “Seek first the kingdom [of God] and his righteousness, and all these things will be given you besides.”

Choose Your Reward Wisely  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 6: 1–21
Matthew 6: 1–18 for LFM
Summary: The ability to practice quiet piety depends upon our trust in our heavenly Father to reward us. Without that trust, we will seek the world’s praise instead of God’s approval. Spiritual disciplines require that we walk by faith, not by sight, waiting for God’s reward.

Who’s Watching the Show?  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 6: 1–18
Summary: Professional athletes forget that they are playing for the fans. Christians forget that they are living for God. Jesus instructed his followers not to make a show of their discipleship, but rather to pray, give and help in secret. We have to be reminded that as long as God is watching, no other audience is required. Lent can be a time for keeping secrets with God.

Now What Shall We Do?  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 6: 1–21
Summary: Lent ought to be a time for us to reappraise our spiritual life. What shall we do to enhance our walk and talk with Christ? Pray, of course. But how? Alone and going deep in the Spirit. Give and serve others, of course. But how? Without ostentation, without expectation of being honored or even recognized. Being primarily secret servants who work for God’s kingdom. Fasting, too, is relevant for growing strong spiritually.

Not Like Mike  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 6: 1–21
Summary: The Michael Jordan phenomenon has spawned the marketing slogan, “Be like Mike.” Yet, being like someone else is often an invitation to engage in mimicry rather than being inspired toward maturity. Jesus warns his hearers not to be enamored by a superficial awe of the Mikes of this world, but to develop lives of authentic spirituality grounded in true being.

Mammon, God and the Big Therefore  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 6: 24–34
Summary: This message from Jesus is not a call to relinquish or renounce anything. Rather, Jesus is offering us a choice. He tells us that we must choose between freedom and slavery. He urges us to choose freedom, and tells us how to take the first steps toward the only real freedom there is.

Summary: There’s nothing wrong with the things Jesus seems to condemn in this Ash Wednesday passage. Certainly it is good to give alms, to pray, to fast, to worship in public with God’s people. But now, during Lent, we must look within our hearts, not just at what we do, but at our motivations.

Follow Jesus, Mixed Motives and All  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 6: 1–21
Summary: Our reasons for serving God and doing good deeds may be mixed — a desire to please God coupled with a desire to look good for doing so. But we should not wait until our motives are pure to do what is right. We should follow Jesus right away, mixed motives and all.

Focus and Steer  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 6: 24–34
Summary: Jesus warns about having two masters. We cannot serve both God and money. To achieve freedom from worry and from slavery to money, we must put our true focus on Jesus’ kingdom and its values. God cares for his creation, so he will care and provide for us.
