May 3 – Matthew 22
LOOK: Jesus continues to deal with religious lost. Jesus tells the parable of the wedding banquet warning the religious lost that the future kingdom is coming and those coming will be rewarded but those who refuse will be left behind. Jesus teaches about giving taxes to Caesar. Jesus deals with the trick questions coming from the Sadducees and then restates the Greatest Command…”Love the Lord your God with all your hearts and with all your soul and with all your mind…Love your neighbor as yourself”. Jesus ends this chapter by stating His authority as the Son of God.
LISTEN: Most of Matthew is about proving Jesus is God’s Son to the Jewish people. However, they missed Him…worse they rejected Him!
LEARN: What have you done with the evidence that Jesus is God’s Son? Have you accepted Him as Lord over your life? Make no mistake, one day every knee will bow to His Kingship. Be sure that your bow will be in worship not in fear!
