Wolves in Sheep's Clothing (Matt 7:15-20)

The danger of the false prophet is an old one and so God has been warning his people against them for millennia. In these verses, Jesus instructs us on how we may recognize such a false prophet. Though at first glance the foe will appear as one of us; he will seem to be one of the sheep. However, if we dig a little deeper we shall discover that this is only a disguise and we are in fact dealing with a ravenous wolf. We are able to identify the wolves by their fruit; that is, they are known by their words and deeds. Just as a healthy tree bears healthy fruit and a diseased tree bears diseased fruit, the false teacher bears only diseased fruit. We shall recognize them by their fruits.

The Lord Preserves the Righteous (Gen 20:1-18)

Though we stumble and fall, God is gracious and faithful in preserving us. This is the lesson that is to be found in Genesis chapter 20: God preserves the righteous. This is first demonstrated with Sarah. The Lord preserved her and kept her from being violated by another man. Then God’s preservation is seen in Abimelech, the king of Gerar. The Lord preserved him and kept him from committing adultery with Sarah. Finally, the Lord preserved Abraham. Though he was guilty of deceiving Abimelech and putting Sarah in danger, the Lord still had regard for his prophet. Not only was Abraham delivered from the consequences of his sin, he was also enriched by Abimelech.

Entering Through the Narrow Gate (Matt 7:13-14)

When senators and others want us to revoke our testimony that Jesus is the only way to the Father, they are asking us to blaspheme our King and savior. Yet that will be demanded of us. Therefore, if we are going to stick out our necks for the word of Christ, we had better know what he was saying. With that in mind, we now turn to Matthew 7:13-14 to hear what Jesus has to say about the way to heaven. The first thing to notice is that Jesus commands people to enter through the narrow gate. We must take either the narrow path or the wide path; we are not allowed to sit on the fence. A choice must be made. Jesus then describes those two options. There is the broad path which is easy yet leads to destruction, and there is the narrow path which is difficult yet leads to eternal life

The Lingering Effects of Sin (Gen 19:15-38)

Our focus shall be upon the effect on a family when the head of the household is not following God single-heartedly. First, we shall see the effect this had on Lot himself. The draw of the world and the way he had already compromised with it had so affected him that he had difficulty leaving it behind. Then there is Lot’s wife. She also had difficulty leaving the sinful city behind, and for that her life was taken from her. At this point the text will take a brief detour to make mention of Abraham. There we shall see the value of a godly, praying man. The narrative then returns to the lingering effect of sin upon Lot’s daughters.

Relying on God to Love Others (Matt 7:7-12)

What is Jesus teaching us when he tells us to ask, seek, and knock? That is the question that we will be addressing today. Further, we shall see how we are to ask for these things. Then Jesus assures us that God hears and answers our prayers. Finally, Jesus applies these instruction on prayer to our obedience to the Golden Rule.
