Sermon on the Mount: Matthew 5:6

on September 19, 2023

Pastor Matt walks through Matthew 5:6 and dives into what it means to hunger and thirst for righteousness, and asks the question:

“What consistent spiritual disciplines are acknowledging, nourishing, and satisfying the appetite of your affections?”

Key takeaways:

  • It’s not natural for us to be Christ-like, we were born sinners.
  • God gives us an appetite to change when we put our faith in Him. Only He can satisfy us through righteousness.
  • Christ is our only hope!

“The desires that rule your heart determine how you evaluate your life, how you make small and large decisions, and, most importantly, how you think about the goodness and faithfulness of God.” – Paul David Tripp
