Helper’s High
You are listening to the sermon from 06/25/17
Faith Wesleyan Church in Rockford IL.

Scripture texts: Matthew 5:6

Synopsis: As Christians, we must be the ones who offer meaningful help and support in our world. It is wrong for us not to. The Bystander Effect is a human trait. One scientist said that most of us will succumb to this effect. But we Christians must overcome our human traits, because Jesus, in the Sermon on the Mount, is calling us to be more than human. This hunger and thirst for God and for spiritual things are really a gif. We are not conditioned to think of hunger or thirst as gifs or blessings. If we were not hungry for God, we would not seek Him. If we were not thirsty for spiritual fulfillment, we would not seek it. Let’s give thanks for a hunger and thirst that drives us into the presence of God.
