What Is Really Going On? – 16 December 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.
In this section of Matthew, we’re learning about Jesus’ parables of the kingdom. Jesus has begun utilizing parables, riddles, colorful and enigmatic stories in his teaching, and this chapter is chock full of them. Jesus told His disciples that He was using parables so much because they were the perfect kind of stories to both reveal His kingdom to those who trust and follow Him and to conceal His kingdom from those who do not want it. This week we see that the Kingdom has Come. the Kingdom is Coming, and the Kingdom will Come.
Pastor Matt preaching on Matthew 13:24-43.
