What's your passion? Are you intensely craving and seeking happiness? Good health? Love?

Passage: Matthew 5:7
Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 40 mins 54 secs
Me? Be kind, merciful, and forgiving even to hateful, mean-spirited people? That's not possible. Listen to this lesson to learn that the standards of righteousness Jesus taught in the Sermon on the Mount are impossible under our own efforts but are applicable to everyone who would be a committed believer depending on God's power. See how Jesus displayed mercy when He was on earth in a culture that was cruel and unforgiving. Note the distinctions between grace and mercy and how they relate to God's amazing attributes.

"All we're saying is give peace a chance." Sound familiar? Listen to this lesson to learn the many meanings of peace.

Discover three important questions that must be answered to gain peace and that peace at any price is not what is meant. Note that our mission now as believers is to tell others how to have peace with God so we will be peacemakers and called the sons of God.

Duration: 1 hr 5 mins 4 secs
A jar of salt doesn't sound like much of a paycheck but in the ancient world salt was sometimes more valuable than gold.

See the meaning of earth and how salt was a means of fertilizing agricultural crops. Understand that just as salt can become useless, Christians become useless if they bear no fruit. Examine how we become useful when we produce fruit through a consistent daily walk by means of the Holy Spirit.
