A Scandalous Kindness

The notion of fairness or justice is widespread throughout the world. From a very early age children learn the concept even though they might not understand it or apply it consistently. They know when they are being punished for something they didn’t do, or when a sibling plays with a toy longer than they have. This concept of justice extends into adulthood, hopefully refined. It reaches into our marriages, our jobs, our justice system, and even international politics. Injustice is scandalous. Yet what if the most unjust event ever was also the only path to the greatest kindness ever? What if the only path to ultimate good went through an act of scandalous injustice? Today, we conclude our talks on the book of Matthew by looking at the death of Jesus to consider what happened and why it happened. As we do this, consider the incredible meaning behind this act of injustice and ask yourself if you are a part of it.

Apocalypse Then

The idea of a cataclysmic and tragic ending to the world as we know it is a familiar one. There are some who believe it is brought on by some natural disaster, some worldwide plague, some great war, or even something from space entering our atmosphere. Almost everyone believes that the world cannot continue on as it is forever. Therefore many people have questions about what will happen, and when it will happen. These are not new questions. For generations people have turned to the Bible to see the Bible’s view of these things. That is why the book of Revelation is one of the most popular books of the Bible. But there is a lot of information about the end of the world in other parts of the Bible as well. Today, we look at some teaching of Jesus to his disciples about what they should expect at the end of the world, and how they should live because of this teaching. We join them, on the Mount of Olives, to hear these words of Jesus.

A Kingdom Worth Pursuing

Stories are common in all cultures. Some stories entertain. Some stories teach important things. Some stories are puzzles to be figured out. Some stories do several things all at one time. At their heart, stories are word pictures that draw us into another life, even if only for a minute. In that other life, we see things a different way. Today, we see a series of stories that Jesus tells to help his hearers see things a different way. These stories have an ancient flavor, requiring us to understand something of life in the times of Jesus. They also have eternal truths, requiring us to examine our own lives and see how we fit into the stories of Jesus. Ask yourself today if Jesus if you believe that Jesus is worth pursuing at all costs. Does the promise of being part of His kingdom have the power to change the way you live?

Jesus' Most Famous Sermon

History is filled with quotes and lines from famous people, spoken to inform, to motivate and inspire, to condemn, or to entertain. Many of these sayings are notable because of the occasion on which they were delivered. Others are notable because of their content. But few of these speeches have survived for thousands of years, and made their way into the everyday language of people. The sayings of Christ are different though. They are notable, not because of their occasion or their setting, but because of their content. Today, we look at the most famous sermon Jesus ever preached. It was a message that was radical, both then and now. It calls people to a higher way of living, to a set of values and ideals that seem impossible. Yet Jesus delivered this message without apology to a crowd numbering perhaps in the thousands. And today, he delivers it to us through Matthew to challenge us about what it means to live under the authority of King Jesus.

Who Is This Jesus?

In a world of questions, there are some easy ones and some hard ones. There are some important ones and some unimportant ones. Some days there are lots of questions, and other days there are few. But there is one question that every single person will have to answer, and that is the question of who is this man called Jesus? It is the most important question you will ever answer because it is a question with eternal ramifications. Today, here at Grace, we begin a brand new series of talks about the man named Jesus from one of the short biographies of his life found in the New Testament of our Bible. A follower of Jesus named Matthew wrote this book to teach those who never knew Jesus who he was and what he was like. Today,
