Who Are You?

| by | Scripture: Matthew 5:13-16

What does it mean to be the salt and light of the world? It means that as Christians, we have a new identity from Jesus. Jesus was the true light of the world, and he glorified the Father by his obedience and good works. By association with him, he gives us that same identity, and also empowers us by his Spirit to glorify God in the world through good deeds and holiness.


A Call To Greatness

| by | Scripture: Matthew 5:17-20

Matthew 5:17-20 NASB
“Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill. For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished. Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever keeps and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. “For I say to you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.”


The Authority Of Jesus

| by | Scripture: Matthew 5:20-22

In Jesus’ day, the scribes and pharisees were seen by the people as the authorities on the scriptures. They explained the scriptures by quoting past teachers and commentaries. However, Jesus spoke about the scriptures with his own authority. Jesus is God in the flesh, and he taught with the authority of God himself.


The Authority Of Jesus Pt 2 and Dealing With Anger

| by | Scripture: Matthew 5:21-26

“You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder; and whoever murders will be liable to judgment.’ But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire.”
