Message #382, Matthew 6:1-15, "Why Motives Matter" Sunday, July 14, 2019 Jesus teaches us through this portion of the Sermon on the Mount how His disciples are to practice giving and prayer. This humbling instruction from Jesus builds upon the previous chapter's lessons on the disciple God blesses and how our God is concerned with both the outward actions and the inward motives. Our sermon questions are: How does my relationship with God affect how I give? How should I give so that my heavenly Father is glorified? (Matthew 6:1-4) What is prayer? What does God reveal about Himself and about me through prayer? (Matthew 6:5-15) Related verses: 1 Kings 18:26-39 Genesis 1:26-31 Revelation 1:5-6 Isaiah 43:7 Revelation 4:11 Mathew 5:16 Luke 5:17-26 Luke 7:11-16 Luke 13:10-16 Luke 17:11-19 Luke 18:35-43 Luke 23:32-47 Romans 1:20 Hebrews 1 1 Corinthians 2 John 17 Calvary Chapel Reston Station 1950 Isaac Newton Sq.

Message #380, Matthew 5:31-48, “They Say or God Said?” Sunday, June 30, 2019 We finish out Matthew 5 with an overview of the Sermon on the Mount thus far. We observe Jesus' pattern of correcting what His disciples have heard regarding the Scriptures from the Scribes and Pharisees, with what God originally intended. The goal being the humbling of the listener, to see their need for God rather than futile efforts of self righteousness. The sermon questions this week are: 1) Why is it so important to understand what the Bible teaches in light of the whole Bible? 2) How shall we be perfect, just as our Father in heaven is perfect? Related verses: Matthew 5:3-6,17-20 Mark 7:8-9 Matthew 15:6 Romans 3:19-20; 7:7 1 Timothy 1:8-9 Galatians 3:19-24 Romans 3:21-31 Psalm 19 Romans 1:18-20 Hebrews 1 2 Timothy 2:15 John 14:6 Romans 8:1-4 James 2:10 2 Corinthians 5:21 Psalm 17:15 Romans 8:29-39 Calvary Chapel Reston Station 1950 Isaac Newton Sq.

Message #379, Matthew 5:17-30, “Why Do I Need Jesus?” Sunday, June 23, 2019 Our study of the Sermon on the Mount continues with Jesus explaining the righteousness required to enter the kingdom of heaven. Our sermon questions are: 1) How did Jesus fulfill the Old Testament, and why should it matter to me? (Matthew 5:17-20) 2) Does perfection motivate or humble me?

Message #377, Matthew 4:12-25, “Jesus' Gospel and Invitation” Sunday, June 9, 2019 As Matthew's gospel continues, he shows us how Jesus fulfilled Old Testament prophecy concerning the Messiah's ministry in Capernaum of Galilee. Matthew tells us of Jesus' ministry of teaching, preaching, and healing. He also writes of Jesus' discipleship of Andrew, Peter, James, and John. Our sermon questions are: Why did Jesus leave Nazareth? How do the words of Jesus reveal our hearts? (Matthew 4:12-17) Is "full-time ministry" a biblical term? What can I learn from Jesus' invitation to follow Him? (Matthew 4:18-25) Related verses: John 1:35-3:21 Luke 3:19-20 Luke 4:16-31 John 8:29 Galatians 1:10-12 1 Corinthians 10:31-33 Acts 5:27-32 1 Peter 2:6-8 Galatians 5:11 1 Corinthians 1:18,23 Romas 9:32-33 John 8:12 Isaiah 9:1-2,6 Proverbs 4:18-19 Matthew 4:17 Pslam 119:105 Hebrews 4:12-13 Ephesians 5:13 2 Timothy 4:1-2,5 2 Timothy 2:24-26 1 Corinthians 9:27 Mark 5,9,14 Deuteronomy 6:5 Matthew 22:37 1 Corinthians 10:31 2 Timothy 2:15 Romans 10:13-17 Matthew 18:8-9 Luke 12:4-5 Calvary Chapel Reston Station 1950 Isaac Newton Sq.

Message #376, Matthew 4:1-11, “The Garden, the Wilderness, and the Messiah” Sunday, June 2, 2019 We dig into our study of Jesus in Matthew 4, and examine His temptation in the wilderness. Our sermon questions are: What is the lust of the flesh? What is God's purpose in leading me through difficult/humbling experiences? (Matthew 4:1-4) What is the pride of life? How may I overcome the circumstances/temptations that provoke me to question if God is with me? (Matthew 4:5-7) What is the lust of the eyes? Why are worship and service to God critical to having a right relationship with the things of this world? (Matthew 4:8-11) Related verses: Genesis 2:16 Genesis 3 Deuteronomy 8 Exodus 16 Deuteronomy 6:16 Exodus 17:1-7 Deuteronomy 6:13-15 Deuteronomy 6:4-13 Psalm 2; 22:22-31 Hebrews 2:17-18; 4:15-16 Romans 3:23 1 John 2:2; 4:10 1 John 2:15-17 Ephesians 2:3 Galatians 5:17 1 Peter 2:11 2 Timothy 2:22 Jeremiah 17:9-10 James 4:6,10 Luke 18:10-14 Proverbs 29:25 Proverbs 16:18 Luke 16:15 Luke 12:22-34 Hebrews 13:5-6 Luke 12:15 Proverbs 27:20 Philippians 4:6-13 Calvary Chapel Reston Station 1950 Isaac Newton Sq.

Message #375, Matthew 3:1-17, “The Forerunner and the Father” Sunday, May 26, 2019 In this study we jump into Matthew chapter 3, which comes roughly thirty years after the end of Matthew chapter 2. Matthew introduces us to John the Baptist, who God the Father introduces to the Son of God. Our sermon questions are: What was the message and the mission of John the Baptist? What is the significance of Jesus' baptism? Special thanks and acknowledgment to Pastor Jon Courson and his Application Commentary on the New Testament (Volume 3) that provided the four points which were used to answer the second sermon question!

Message #374, Matthew 2:13-23, “Choosing Nazareth” Sunday, May 19, 2019 As we conclude Matthew 2 we follow Jesus, Joseph, and Mary being led in God's will and the fulfillment of messianic prophecies through divine and circumstantial ways. Our sermon questions are: What can we learn from the humility of Jesus through the events here in Matthew 2? And why is it critical I grow in my knowledge of God and my relationship with God as I follow His will? Related verses: 1 Corinthians 10:13 Luke 1:26; 2:1-5 Micah 5:2 Hosea 11:1 John 3:14 Jeremiah 31:15 Isaiah 11:1 Jeremiah 23:5-6;33:15-16 Zechariah 3:8;6:12-13 John 1:46 Psalm 22:6 Isaiah 53:1-3 Philippians 2:5-8 Hebrews 4:15;5:5-8 Philippians 2:3-4 Hebrews 4:16 Romans 8:28,29 Psalm 103:14 Matthew 11:29 John 8:50 Matthew 9:10 Luke 15:1,2 Hebrews 12:3 Isaiah 50:5,6 1 Peter 2:23 Matthew 26:60-63 John 13:4-5 Matthew 20:28 Mark 10:45 Philippians 2:8 Calvary Chapel Reston Station 1950 Isaac Newton Sq.

Message #373, Matthew 2:1-12, “Jesus: Threat, Fact, or King?” Sunday, May 12, 2019 We continue our study of Matthew, and here in chapter two we observe three different reactions to Jesus’ incarnation/birth. They range from the suspicion of Herod the Great, to the indifference of the chief priests and scribes, to the reverence and worship of the wise men from the east. Our sermon questions are: Is my relationship with Jesus based on perception or reality? What lessons can I learn by considering the actions of the wise men in Matthew 2? Related verses: Luke 1:36; 2:1-7, 8-20 Luke 2:17, 21 Leviticus 12:3 Exodus 13:2,12,15 Leviticus 12:6-8 Matthew 2:11, 16 Ezekiel 33:11 Jeremiah 31:31-34 Isaiah 53:4-6 2 Timothy 2:12 Revelation 20:6 John 4:10-14, 19-26 John 8:32 James 4:2 Matthew 6:8 Psalm 38:9 John 16:23-27 1 John 5:20 Luke 22:31-34 Calvary Chapel Reston Station 1950 Isaac Newton Sq.
