Sermons from May 2020
It has been clear in our journey through Matthew’s gospel, that some people receive Jesus and some reject Him… this week, Pastor Joe unpacks the first of a series of parables to show us why Jesus had this effect on people who engaged with His teaching.
Everyone wanted a piece of the Messiah, everyone had their own pre-conceived ideas about Him. Well in this passage, Pastor Ben will show us how the religious leaders of Jesus’ day let their ideas about the Messiah drive them to make a fatal mistake in how they treated Jesus.
Busyness is the new marker of success… if you are busy, it means you are kicking goals in life because you have something to be busy with. But Jesus wants us to see that there is more to life than busyness, and He came to give us rest. Pastor Joe helps us to see where our true rest can be found.
There are countless ideas about Jesus in this world. There are even countless ideas about Jesus across the varying manifestations of the church. So with all these different ideas, it is easy to doubt that we can truly know Him? Pastor Joe helps us to see the true Christ and have our doubts met by Him.
We have seen that following Jesus comes with a cost. This week Pastor Ben helps us to see the intimate details of that cost as he looks at the way Jesus calls His disciples to following Him onto the mission field.
