Adultery of the Heart

Download PDF

One look at the bible text for today and you might imagine the preacher opening his or her Bible and proclaiming: “Jesus says—Stop It!” The words of Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount—including today’s section–were not intended either as prohibition or condemnation. Instead, Jesus is describing the Now and Not-Yet Kingdom of his heavenly Father, and invites us to participate in this beautiful kingdom with all the stuff of our lives—including our sexuality.

Jesus and the Law

September 25, 2016 – Rod Wilson

We begin a very important section of the Sermon on the Mount this week.  Jesus talks about how the Kingdom of God is not exactly like the law that preceded it even though there is continuity.  The example he uses is the relationship between anger and murder, a topic that all of us can understand if we look out and if we look in!  Don’t forget to go online to the CapChurch website to pick up your copy of the Study Guide for this series.

Compassion for Neighbour

September 18, 2016 – Kim Pierrot

As we continue in our series The Way of the Kingdom: Passion for Christ, Compassion for Neighbour we’ll talk about how Jesus calls his followers to conduct themselves in the world. Today, as we focus on the theme of “Compassion for Neighbour”, we will see that being “salt” and “light” in our world is as simple (and as complex) as participating with God and in God’s beautiful Kingdom the way the Beatitudes describe.

Passion For Christ

September 11, 2016 – Kim Pierrot

Join us this fall as we explore the “Way of the Kingdom”—the transformative teachings of Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew 5-7. Emerging out of our desire to cultivate passion for Christ and compassion for neighbour, we are focusing on the revolutionary words of Jesus also known as “The Sermon on the Mount”. To begin the series, we consider the often misinterpreted and misunderstood verses of Matthew 5:1-12 referred to as “The Beatitudes”. Some say these describe what being blessed looks like. Others suggest they outline how to be a good Christian. One famous televangelist claimed they were the keys for happiness calling them “Be Happy Attitudes”! What if these verses are not as much about our happiness or attitudes as they are about God’s character, the shape of His kingdom, and how we get to participate? (Kim Pierrot)

Prayer and Faith

August 28, 2016 – Shelley MacDonald-Lin

Wouldn’t it be fascinating if we could listen to Jesus’ brother talk about things he heard from his brother? What do you think he would tell us?  What would he emphasize?  Through the work of the Holy Spirit we have this opportunity from June 5 through to September 4 as we study the Book of James together.  Each Sunday we will have the opportunity to engage the book both by listening to the preacher but also by interacting with the preacher and each other so stay tuned for interactive sermons not monologues.  This Sunday, Shelley MacDonald-Lin will be speaking from James 5:13-20. The key personal question is: “How is prayer a manifestation of your faith in God’s power?”
