Matthew 16
on January 26th, 2023
Matthew 16Show us a sign!  As if He hasn’t shown them enough all ready.  The religious leaders want proof He’s God!  You can see the weather moving in and no it’s gonna storm, but you can’t see what’s happening with the world around you!  Wicked look for a sign.  The sign of Jonah will be all you get.  Basically that’s what Jesus tells them.  Any guesses what He means by the sign of Jonah?Oh man… ...  Read More
Matthew 15

Chapter 15Wash your hands before you eat or… or what?  Wait, are the religious leaders seriously checking Jesus up over He and the Disciples not washing their hands - yup they are.  Jesus responds by putting them right back in their place!“What goes into someone’s mouth does not defile them, but what comes out of their mouth, that is what defiles them.””‭‭Matthew‬ ‭15‬:‭11‬ ‭NIV‬‬Here He again rem...  Read More
Matthew 14
on January 24th, 2023
Matthew 14 Horrible tragedy - incredible miracles!- John the Baptist’s head on a platter.  That’s right - a crummy end for the one who heralded the arrival of The Saviour of the World.- Jesus feeds way more than 5k (they only counted the men) with a kids lunch (John 6:9.) John records a boy was there - a boy willing to give all he had for the Kingdom!  Jesus used it miraculously.  I love that!!!- ...  Read More
Matthew 13
on January 23rd, 2023
Matthew 13In Matthew 12 we saw the religious leaders really starting to turn on Jesus, even starting to plot to kill Him.  He was preaching a The Gospel of Grace, and they were all about their “good works”.  In 13 Jesus begins speaking in parables.  Those with a humble, open, teachable heart will understand those with hard unrepentant hearts will not.  We read the parable of the sower and soon rea...  Read More
Matthew 12
on January 22nd, 2023
Matthew 12In Matthew Chapter 10 we read that Jesus came to bring the sword, not peace!  Against what?  Evil, sin and the messed up thinking that has permeated man as a result.  Jesus was turning the world on its head.  He was preaching a Gospel which ran contrary to the strict rules the religious leaders had been practicing and teaching for years.  They were nearly perfect at it, and felt good abo...  Read More
Matthew 11
on January 21st, 2023
Matthew 11Having sent out the 12 disciples to get to work, Jesus gets back at it - Teaching and Preaching.  He points out the kind of man John the Baptist is.  Not what you would expect, yet “Truly I tell you, among those born of women there has not risen anyone greater than John the Baptist; yet whoever is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.” Matthew‬ ‭11‬:‭11‬ ‭John wasn’t who the...  Read More
Matthew 10

Well you ready?  Are you all squared away?  Don’t take anything with you - no extra money,  no clothes.  God will provide through His people.  Go tell the people the Kingdom of God is near!  Boom - I’m giving you The Authority to cast out demons, to heal the sick and the Lepers - even to raise the dead! You’ll be like sheep among wolves.  “You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one w...  Read More
Matthew 9
on January 19th, 2023
Matthew 9Matthew was a tax collector.  Tax collectors were the WORST - often demanding way more tax than was required so that they could keep some for themselves.  Jesus chooses and calls Matthew - no biggie.  Jesus can use anyone He chooses who’s willing.Miracles, miracles, miracles.  This chapter is filled with miraculous healings!  Paralyzed man - no problem.   Unclean women bleeding for 12 yea...  Read More
Matthew 8
on January 18th, 2023
Having finished The Sermon on the Mount, Jesus comes down followed by the growing crowd.  Let the miracle performing begin!  Having just heard His sermon, imagine being a disciple - tagging along while Jesus touches the man with leprosy.  Touching a leper was a big no no in the Jewish world.  He wastes no time turning the world on its head.  The thing is, He will soon heal others without a touch. ...  Read More
Matthew 7
on January 17th, 2023
This chapter is jammed packed with slaps straight in the face for all of us!  Get that plank out of your eye… then you can see clearly to remove the sliver from your neighbors eye.  We love to point the finger at others - it takes the focus off of us.  Here Jesus continues to remind us He wants our heart!  Make sure you’re squared up before you go pointing out where others are off.He’s always ther...  Read More
Matthew 6
on January 16th, 2023
Matthew 6Sermon on the MountJesus continues to instruct His followers, reiterating that He is concerned with their / our heart.  The “good” things we do should be done in secret, not for the worlds praise.  When we give, when we pray, when we fast - it’s between us and the Father.  If what we’re after is the praise of men… that’s all we get.  If honoring God the Father is our goal, and storing up ...  Read More
Matthew 5
on January 16th, 2023
At the end of Matthew 4 we see Jesus strolling along the sea - just calling fishermen to leave EVERYTHING and join Him.  The crazy thing is, they DO IT.  The expectation is - we will too!5 starts with Jesus lining them out.  He’s got them, now what’s He do with them?  First a little training.  Jesus starts with a list of expectations we’ve come to know as the Beatitudes.  If you’re going to roll w...  Read More
