Take Up His Cross – 17 March 2019
The Gospel of Matthew is a theological biography. And the key question of any biography is WHO, right? For the last several months, we’ve said, “In the Gospel of Matthew, you’ve got to keep your eye on the ball. And the ball is the question of Jesus’ identity. Who is this Person?” We’ve seen that again and again.
In Matthew 16:21, Jesus turns a major corner. He begins to set His face towards Jerusalem.No more strategic withdrawals to a Gentile-populated territory. He begins to head towards His fate. Jesus had to take up His cross for us. He calls us to take up our cross for Him.
Pastor Matt preaching on Matthew 16:21-28.
