Change of Heart
Mar 07 2021 • Greg Boyd, Guest Panelists, Tara Beth Leach
When we think about sin, we tend to think about our behavior, but Jesus sets the bar much higher. He says that in God’s Kingdom, we no longer follow the letter of the law, but the spirit of the law, and this must come from our hearts. In this series we look at how Jesus calls for a complete and total change of heart.

This sermon offers two preliminary words about two difficult issues that are hot topics in our culture: race and sex.
If we want to experience change in our life habits that are unhealthy and sinful, we need to learn to embrace the practice of confession. This sermon gives a clear path for entering into this little-adopted habit of the Christian faith.

In this sermon, Tara Beth Leach provides insight into Jesus’ practical teaching regarding what it means to live in righteousness and reconciliation with others.
In this sermon, Greg provides a recap to his teaching from last week and then invites a panel of three to provide input and practical direction to the role that anger might play in our lives.
Jesus taught that being angry or insulting another person leads to the same consequences as murdering them. This is a radical Kingdom teaching that goes beyond an examination of our behaviors. It focuses on our hearts.
