When he calms the storm, we learn Jesus brings the power of God to rescue His people from the vast destructive forces of nature. The miracles of Jesus have a message: Jesus brings the mercy of God for healing and deliverance.

Matthew introduces us to two potential disciples. One says: "I will follow Jesus if it pays off now."  The other says: "Now is paying off, I’ll follow Jesus later." The opportunity to decide to follow Jesus is now. One day it will be too late.

Matthew has just quoted Jesus as claiming to have authority from God. Now he turns our attention to how Jesus acts with God's authority, by performing miracles only God can perform. These miracles confront us with a choice to believe Jesus is who he says he is.

How did Jesus had to our understanding of what should we do or not do on the Sabbath? He taught that Sabbath is a rest that is given, not earned, and that our “job” is to enjoy it, not to live up to it.

Sabbath rest is yet to come —the rest we enjoy today anticipates the real Sabbath rest that awaits us in the kingdom. That future rest is granted to those who have saving faith in Jesus Christ.

How do we keep the Sabbath? The simple command is not to work. We stop the activities we do that sustain our lives and instead we do the things that most foster our relationship to, understanding of and dependence on God.

Sabbath is about who God is. It’s not about what we need to live healthy lives. It’s not about making sure we get our rest so that we can be productive at work, be nice to our family and stay awake during Bible Studies (though none of those things are bad things). Sabbath reminds us who God is. Because as we’ll see, on the Sabbath, we rest to remember God.

What if God has called me to something and I'm just plain afraid to follow?  What if the path He has put before me seems too frightening or overwhelming?

How do you accomplish great things for the kingdom of God and quiet that inner voice that says whatever you're doing, it's not enough? In 2Kings 5 we see a series of contrasts between how the world measures greatness and God measures greatness.

Habakkuk first asks why God would let evil go on so long among His own chosen people. Confused by the Lord's answer, Habakkuk then asks how the Lord can let the wicked trample the righteous? Again, the Lord's answer is not what Habakkuk expects.

The Old Testament book of Habakkuk speaks to two of the most fundamental questions of the Christian faith: 1) How long will God let His people suffer? and 2) Why should we keep believing Him if we're not spared the tragedies of life?

Matthew 7:12-29 summarizes two great themes we've seen in this sermon: 1) You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 2) There is a road that seems right to us, but it leads to destruction.

Ask God for the life He has promised and you will receive it. Seek the good things that He has promised and you will find them. Knock on the door to the kingdom of heaven and it will open to you. These words are powerful because of the difficult battle they represent. Believing and acting on these promises is the central struggle of the Christian life.

In Matthew 7:6, many people understand Jesus to be saying something like: you don't need to share the gospel with hostile, unworthy people. However, I agree with the minority who understand Jesus to be saying: don’t be the kind of fool who throws away what is beautiful and precious.

The log in your own eye versus the speck in your neighbor's eye is a powerful image of willfully living a lie. Jesus warns that if you condemn other people for their sins, you are ignoring a fundamental truth about yourself in a way that is almost impossible to imagine.
