Matthew: Christ The Promised King
Pat Brown • Hope City Church Edinburgh • Sermon • • 14 views • 30:22
Love is Exclusive: Enter the Narrow Gate Jesus offers the “Golden Rule” as the summary of the Law and the Prophets. The essence of this rule is love, which cannot be perfectly fulfilled without God radically changing our hearts. Truly loving others begins with loving God, and love is, by nature, exclusive. It is no wonder then that Jesus speaks of a narrow way which leads to life, while all other ways lead to destruction. We must rest in God’s grace by entering this narrow gate, which is Jesus Himself.
Behold The King
Jesus’ Pedigree It is important to recognize that the Gospel of Matthew was written to the Hebrew people in the first century. It is a thorough record of Jesus’ right to the throne of David. King David God made a covenant with king David, establishing a Davidic dynasty and promising an eternal Davidic…
Footsteps of Jesus
If we are not careful, there comes a time in our desire to live Christ-honoring lives when we establish rules to live by that may be helpful, but are not scriptural mandates. What happens from time to time is churches might take an application of a biblical principle and make it the biblical principle.…
Sermon on the Mount
Murder. anger, pride, selfishness all have malice in common. These sins and many more cut the heart off from pure motives focused on the Lord. Our prayer today is that as you listen to this message, you lay any burdens down that are holding you back from a life of freedom in Christ and a heart that is set aside only for God. Only God can take a dirty heart and make it clean.
We are in week four of our series that is on the Book of Matthew. We are still in the beginning stages of Jesus ministry. Last week we looked at the temptation of Jesus. Today, I want to look at the mission of Jesus. I believe He has a three fold mission on what He came to do. I believe we see a glimpse…
This is week five of our sermon series on the Book of Matthew. We are moving right along. I told you last week we will do a series on the beatitudes this summer. We will completely unwrap each of those and their meanings. So, for today, I want to move to the next section. Many of you have heard many…
Last week we began a series on the Book of Matthew. My message pointed to Jesus as the Messiah. It is important that we understand Jesus as being the Messiah. Today we will be reading Matthew chapter 3. This is what starts the beginning of Jesus’ ministry. About 20 years have past since we last heard…
34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. Introduction Have you ever seen a date coming, maybe a test in school, a meeting with your boss that you realize you are going to have to deal with something. I have been seeing the collision with this verse and…
Sermon on the Mount 2017
Intro Last week we looked briefly at the Beatitudes and learnt what we referred to as the soundtrack of our lives. The rhythms and lyrics to the song our lives sing are wrapped up in those verses. The big takeaway from hearing those Beatitudes is that we hear that we have been called by God to be called…
Is Jesus Your Rabbi or Lord?
For the past several months this year, God has been dealing with me on the discipleship that is in place for this church. Sure we have different opportunities for you to grow in your relationship with the Lord but I still believe that there are things missing that we need to put in place. About three…
Sermon on the Mount
Lights shine bright... everywhere we go! As long as God is at work (which He is), as long as the Holy Spirit is moving (which he is), as long as the Church is alive (which she is)... lights will always shine bright. The question is are you contributing to darkness or light? We invite you to listen this morning as Pastor Chase brings God's Word to us in a practical way! (The video shown at the end was of color blind people viewing color for the first time through Enchroma Glasses. The illustration shows what it's like when we allow Christ to shine through our lives to others.)
Sermon on the Mount
Jesus' words in the sermon on the mount were counter cultural during His time. They continue to be counter coultural, yet we are to live by His words, still today. Today we look at Matthew 5:5 and discover that though the world says meekness is weakness, Jesus says the opposite is true. Meekness is power in control, but what does that look like? Find out in this sermon...
Matthew - Jesus is the Subject

John the Baptist comes proclaiming that the kingdom of heaven is arriving with Jesus, therefore all people must repent and turn to the king. Heaven arrives with Jesus; he alone enables entry.
