Message #395, Matthew 12:1-14, "Behold, My Servant" Sunday, October 13, 2019 We pick up with Matthew chapter twelve and consider the growing rejection of Jesus as the Messiah. The majority of the Pharisees begin to measure Jesus' actions and those of His disciples by their religious traditions instead of the Scriptures. Jesus responds to them with gracious, surgical, biblical precision. Our sermon question is: what can I learn from Jesus' interactions with the Pharisees?

Message #394, Matthew 11:16-30, "Woe or Rest?" Sunday, October 6, 2019 As we conclude Matthew 11 we will consider Jesus' assessment of this generation that rejected both the message and ministries of John the Baptist and Jesus the Messiah. The chapter ends with a remarkable invitation that's startling in the face of the growing hard-hearted responses to His message of the kingdom of God and Jesus' miraculous healing works. Our sermon questions are as follows: 1) What did the wisdom of God give birth to in contrast to the wisdom of man? 2) What responsibilities come with revelation? 3) What does God's invitation to rest look like in a disciple's life?

Our sermon questions are as follows: 1) What should I do when doubts arise from difficulties and unmet expectations? 2) How does God respond when we express our doubts to Him?

Message #391, Matthew 9:35-10:26, "Five Lifelong Lessons" Part 1 Sunday, September 15, 2019 In this portion of Scripture, we will study the initial call of Jesus' first twelve disciples to be His apostles. You're invited to join us in learning from these students who Christ commissioned to declare His message, and given authority to validate that message with divine expressions of His mercy. We'll touch on the difference between this first send off with the subsequent commission of the seventy disciples, and then of the Great Commission. We'll do this in order to accurately divide the word (2 Timothy 2:15) and draw out biblical applications. Our sermon questions are as follows: 1)How does God produce in me Jesus' compassion for people? 2)Who does God call to serve Him, and what does He give us to fulfill His calling? 3)How does God fuel our faithfulness and courage in the face of external opposition and internal fears? Related verses: Acts 4:13 Luke 10:1-24 Matthew 28:16-20 Mark 16:15-18 Luke 24:44-49 Acts 1:3-8 Luke 5:1-11 Romans 2:4 1 Corinthians 3:9 Exodus 3 Isaiah 6 Luke 6:12-13 Matthew 4:25;5:1;8:1 John 6:26 John 6:14,64 Proverbs 3:34 James 4:6 1 Peter 5:5 Proverbs 2:1-8 Luke 16:10 Matthew 25:14-30 1 Corinthians 4:2 Isaiah 6:8 1 Corinthians 12:1-12,15-22,27-31 Romans 12:1-8 Calvary Chapel Reston Station 1950 Isaac Newton Sq.

Message #386, Matthew 8:5-17, "Faith's Unconsidered Cost" Sunday, August 11, 2019 We continue in Matthew chapter eight, studying three more examples of Jesus power and authority. His compassionate exercise of both are set before us as proof that Jesus was the promised Messiah. In this study, we'll consider Jesus' healing of the centurion's servant, of Peter's mother-in-law, and of the multitudes. Our sermon questions are as follows: 1) Do I understand the exercise of God's authority for my benefit is an expression of His grace? That it is not a response to my worthiness or to my works? 2) What are the purposes of God's promises? 3) Do I look to God for all things, whether I perceive they are big or small? 4) Whose needs am I aware of that Jesus is inviting me to bring to Him? How can I do this so that they have an opportunity to believe Jesus is the promised Messiah?
