What is a false prophet, and how do we recognize them? Are we bearing good fruit, or will Jesus say of us on the last day “I never knew you”? Intern Hunter Quinn concludes his series on the Sermon on the Mount with Jesus’ warnings about those who claim to follow him but do not live the life he commands.
Intern Hunter Quinn reminds us of our need to live out a Christian life as set forth by Jesus, but not based on our own merit – rather, God hears us in our need and provides all we need to follow the narrow way he has set before us.
Anxiety and worry are common among us all, but Jesus makes it clear that they have no place in the heart of the gospel believer. Intern Hunter Quinn continues his summer series in Matthew as we learn how our Father in heaven provides for our every need and eliminates all cause for worry.

Intern Hunter Quinn continues his series in Matthew as Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount turns to address more issues of the human heart and what a holy heart truly treasures.
Intern Hunter Quinn continues his series in Matthew as Jesus teaches about fasting. Is there a place for fasting in a modern Christian’s life, or was it a mere ceremonial relic of the Old Testament?

Intern Hunter Quinn continues his series in Matthew as Jesus addresses prayer. In learning about the right (and wrong!) ways to pray and the purpose of prayer, we find assurance in the gospel of God’s continual faithfulness and mercy toward us, which is starkly contrasted with the uncertainty and fickle nature of the pagan gods.
As believers we are called to be generous, but generosity is not solely the act of giving – our motivations and how we give matters. Intern Hunter Quinn continues his series in Matthew as Jesus teaches us how we are to give and the ways in which we fall short, along with the ever-present gospel message of complete forgiveness when we inevitably fail to give as we ought.
Intern Hunter Quinn continues his summer series on Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount with a reminder of how God expects us to treat our enemies. In realizing our duty to others, we simultaneously realize God’s abounding grace by the fact that he adopts us, his enemies by nature, as children.
Intern Hunter Quinn continues his series on Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount convicting truths about the nature of lies. As Jesus explains the true demands of the law, we find our own words and actions inevitably falling short of that standard – a realization which should drive us to the forgiveness of the gospel.
