Reflecting Jesus

Sunday (3/5), gather with your church family as we continue our new series in the gospel according to Matthew (5:31-48). It is the first of four gospels that chronicle the birth, life, ministry, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

In the previous section (5:17-30), Jesus shared with the disciples that had followed Him up the Mountain that true righteousness comes from faith in Him, not a commitment to follow and, to the best of their ability, attempt to obey God’s laws.
He said the person who places their faith in Him for the forgiveness of sins would be different because they would have been declared justified in God’s sight. And consequently, they will act, think, talk, and be different. Their attitudes and values will be the opposite of what they were before Him.
The reason was simple. They were once in spiritual darkness, but now they have been brought into the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. They have been born again, and life will never be the same. So, He lays out before them that their marriage, speech, and reaction to injustices will be different as they walk with Him.
And the most important thing is that they will experience a love for all people, friends, and enemies that will flow from within the depths of their hearts that have been made brand new by Him.

I look forward to our time together. Please pray for a fresh
outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon the entire Calvary Chapel family.
There are several opportunities for worship. On-campus (10:00 am), drive-in church (92.1fm), and online (Facebook, YouTube:  Calvary Inverness); (website:
