But I Tell You (2) – 22 April 2018
Our sermon series is called, “Following Jesus” because that’s what we’re learning to do in the Gospel of Matthew. Matthew is a theological biography of the most compelling Person in history–the Person of Jesus Christ. And Jesus Christ has called us to follow Him and fish for more followers.
Jesus said, “Follow me and I will make you fishers of men.” So we’re learning to follow Him in the Gospel of Matthew. We continue our study and focus on Jesus fulfilling the Old Testament. In fact, He gives us 6 examples, 6 illustrations of both how He fulfills the Old Testament and how He wants us to live out a greater righteousness than the Pharisees. Scholars sometimes call them the 6 antitheses. But we are going to call them the 6 “But I Tell You’s.”
Be encouraged by this message to do what it takes to defeat sexual sin, stay faithful to your spouse, and keep all of your promises.
