Matthew

Matthew 9:35-38 and 10:1-8

Matthew 9:35-38 and 10:1-8, March 08, 2020 The Harvest, The Twelve and Us  9:35-36 Compassion of Jesus. The statement they were like sheep without a shepherd is taken from Numbers 27:15-17 where Moses is asking God to provide someone to lead them so the Lord’s people will not be like sheep without a shepherd. Jesus saw the need, felt compassion and was moved by His compassion and acted on it as shown in the next two verses. All too often…
Matthew

Matthew 9:27-38

*Apologies for not capturing the audio of Angi’s sharing her missionary trip to Costa Rica and Honduras.  Many accepted Christ – and many recommitted.  Angi listened to God’s call to go out into the field….. Matthew 9:27-38, March 01, 2020 Healing and Missionary Message  Review:  9:18-26 Twelve and Twelve. Matthew gives these two miracles only 9 verses, while both Mark (5:22-43) with 22 verses and Luke (8:41-56) with 16 verses provide much more detail. Matthew quickly focuses on the faith…

Matthew 9:1-8

Matthew 9:1-8, February 09, 2020 Hearing and Seeing  Review:  8:28-34 Demons and Pigs. When the boat arrived on the Eastern shore of the Sea of Galilee something truly odd happened, two demon possessed men came out to meet Jesus and only Jesus. They had no interaction with the others, only Jesus. A number of things stand out about their meeting with Jesus. 1) They knew who He was, 2) they feared Him, 3) they knew a time would come for…

Matthew 8:18-34

Matthew 8:18-34, February 02, 2020 A Matter of Your Faith Review: 8:2-4 Healing/Cleansing of a Leper. 2 A man with leprosy came and worshipped Him and said, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.”  How do you imagine Jesus went about healing this leper? Recall lepers were to keep a minimum distance of six feet from those who were healthy, 150 feet if someone was downwind of the leper.  8:5-13 Healing of a Centurion’s Servant. 5 When Jesus had…

Matthew 8:10-17

Matthew 8:1-17, January 26, 2020 Power of the King Revealed 5:23-24 Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people. News about Him spread all over Syria, and people brought to him all who were ill with various diseases, those suffering severe pain, the demon-possessed, those having seizures, and the paralyzed; and He healed them. 8:1 After 110 verses (47, 34, 29 in chapters 5,…

MATTHEW 6:5-7:29

Matthew 6:5-7:29, January 19, 2020 Review: Jesus’ Foundation For Our Lives Let’s begin our review here 7:24-25  Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 2The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. We are talking about the foundation for your life.…
Matthew

Matthew 7:1-14

Matthew 7:1-14, January 5, 2020 Judging, Condemning, Deciding Review – 6:25-34 Look at where these verses are placed – right after the danger of possessions! Jesus chooses to deal with those who have little or much worrying.  Worrying they don’t have enough or how to keep or increase what they do have.  In fact Jesus says 3 times (v25, 31, 34) do not worry as your worry leads to distraction from and distrust of God, away from faithfully doing His…

Matthew 6:16-34

Note: due to technical difficulties, there is not a podcast for this message. Matthew 6:16-34, December 29, 2019 Your Heart and Your Priorities Review – The Lord’s Prayer and Your Heart Can we forgive others? Can we see our sins against God no matter how small we think they are, they are greater than any sin against us. Not sure what this means – look to what Jesus told us in Mark 11:25 and the comments of Spurgeon and Scott…
Matthew

Matthew 6:1-15

Matthew 6:1-15, December 22, 2019 It is All About Your Heart Review – Chapter five concluded with six examples that had to do with your heart. Murder begins with anger in your heart. Adultery begins with lust in your heart. Divorce begins with selfishness and a hard heart. Oaths are only necessary if you have a lying heart. Revenge is only necessary if you do not have a forgiving heart – more on this today. Loving your enemies is made…

Matthew 5:27-48

Matthew 5:27-48, December 15, 2019 Adultery/Divorce, Oaths, Eye for Eye, Love Your Enemies Review – SALT You are indicates only the genuinely born-again person is salt. For a Christian, the salt of the earth, to lose his or her saltiness, the Gospel would have to be diluted in his or her life. How? Maybe they mix the Gospel with other ideas or faiths or maybe they are skeptics, does God’s given rules really apply in 2019? LIGHT You are the…

Matthew 5:13-26

Please note:  Apologies – no podcast.  There was a glitch in recording this Sunday’s message.     Matthew 5:13-26, December 08, 2019 Salt & Light, Spiritual Law, Murder Review – What does it mean to be Blessed as in Blessed be throughout the Beatitudes?  It means to be happy, but not how we might perceive the word happy.  The relationship between the Beatitudes and grace, how to live as believers, as people who are saved with a changed life. Quick review…

Matthew 5:1-12

Matthew 5:1-12, December 01, 2019 The Beatitudes Review – John the Baptist called for fruit as evidence of repentance (3:8) while preaching Repent for the kingdom of heaven has come near (3:2). During his revival he said after me comes another more powerful than I whose sandals I am not worthy to carry.  4:17 Repent for the kingdom of heaven has come near. The message of John the Baptist (3:2) is now being proclaimed by Jesus. However, there is a…
