Sermons on Matthew (Page 2)

Gospel of Matthew – Don’t You Judge Me!

You hear a lot of people say “Don’t judge me!” What they often mean is “leave me alone in my sin, you are making me feel bad, affirm me!” But what Christians must understand is what Jesus means when He commands us to “Judge not, lest you be judged.” It is clearly not a ban on discerning right from wrong, as the very next…

Gospel of Matthew – Anxiety and Providence

We continue with our Gospel of Matthew study with a section on Anxiety and Providence from Matthew 6:25-34. This is a challenging and comforting passage. Challenging to those of us who are prone to worry, and comforting for those who are convicted of the wrongness of worry. The general thrust of the passage leads us naturally to speak of God’s providence, and that’s the angle we will take.…

Gospel of Matthew – Treasures in Heaven

Our message is entitled, Gospel of Matthew – Treasures in Heaven, and we will cover Matthew 6:19-34, though we will focus on the first half of the passage this week, and next week we’ll tackle the sin of anxiety. Our message will look at materialism, and the either/or statements Jesus makes about what our relationship to the world says about the condition of our…

Gospel of Matthew – The Model Prayer: Our Father

Our sermon this week will be entitled The Model Prayer: Our Father. We go back to Matthew 6:5-13 to take time to step through what is commonly, but inaccurately called, “The Lord’s Prayer.” We’ll see why there are better names for this passage. We will also see why we need to be taught how to pray, touching on man’s traditions and his…

The Errors of the Pharisees

This week’s message is entitled The Errors of the Pharisees.  We will zoom out a bit from our study of Matthew and the Sermon on the Mount and examine this sect which had such an impact on Jesus’ ministry, and which drew so much of His criticism and teaching. Most importantly, we’ll discuss how many of the errors they made over 2000 years ago are…

Gospel of Matthew – The Rotten Sin of Hypocrisy

This week’s message is entitled The Rotten Sin of Hypocrisy and is drawn from Matthew 6:1-18. This just happens to be one of my favorite chapters in the entire Bible, thanks to the last section we will arrive at in due time, but it also contains the Lord’s Prayer. We will not address the Lord’s Prayer tomorrow, as it deserves its own sermon (and could…

Gospel of Matthew – Loving Our Enemies

Our message is entitled Loving Our Enemies and is the final of six examples of how our righteousness ought to exceed that of the Pharisees. It is drawn from Matthew 5:43-48, but as usual, we will touch on a number of other passages along the way. This final command is among the most difficult of Christ’s directives to His people, let us…

Gospel of Matthew – Retaliation

Our message continues our study of the Sermon on the Mount as we walk through the six different examples that Jesus uses to teach the proper understanding of the law of God, rather than the perverted law the Pharisees had made it out to be. In the week’s lesson, Jesus teaches about retaliation, and we cannot understand this without gaining understanding about…

Gospel of Matthew – Oaths, Vows and Integrity

Today we look at the fourth example of Jesus’ contrasting of the Pharisees’ version of righteousness with the truth in Matthew 5:33-37. Jesus wipes away devious uses of oaths and vows and gets to the heart of the matter, which is integrity and truth-telling. There is no room for willful deception among God’s people. Our task is to be people of forthright speech,…
