Message #406, Matthew 14:1-23, "Jesus, the Bread of Life" Sunday, December 29, 2019 We pick back up in Matthew's gospel with Jesus' miracle of feeding a multitude in the context of John the Baptist's martyrdom. Our sermon questions are: What lessons can we learn from the martyrdom of John the Baptist? What do we learn about Jesus, through His actions following John the Baptist's death? *Due to technical difficulties, the recording of the reading of Matthew 14:1-23 was lost. You're encouraged to read that portion of Scripture prior to listening to the sermon. Thank you!

Message #400, Matthew 12:38-50, "The Household of Faith and This Generation" Sunday, November 17, 2019 Today we conclude Matthew chapter twelve considering Jesus' assessment of the scribes, Pharisees, and their generation that saw Jesus in the flesh. From here we will draw practical and personal applications. Our sermon questions are as follows: 1) Why does Jesus denounce the scribes and Pharisees? 2) What were some characterstics of the generation to which Christ came? 3) Who is truly a member of Jesus' family?

Message #396, Matthew 12:15-37, "Grace Declared, Grace Declined" Sunday, October 20, 2019 We continue in Matthew chapter twelve and study how Jesus responds to the growing opposition and the slanderous accusations of the Pharisees. Our sermon question is: Who did Jesus choose to make Him known? What is the unpardonable sin? Related verses: Matthew 11:20-24 Isaiah 53:1-3 John 1:10-11 Isaiah 42:1-4 Matthew 1:21 Isaiah 53:5-6 Matthew 13:53-58 Matthew 14 Matthew 21 Matthew 27 John 15:13-17 John 13:18-30 Matthew 10:24-25 John 15:18-16:15 Matthew 7:15-27 Matthew 11:4-6 Mark 3:28-30 Luke 12:8-10 Luke 24 Acts 1 Matthew 12:33-37 Matthew 7:13-27 1 Timothy 1:12-17 James 1:21-27 1 John 3:4-9 Calvary Chapel Reston Station 1950 Isaac Newton Sq.

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? Related verses: Isaiah 61:1-2a Isaiah 35:5-6 Deuteronomy 23:25 1 Samuel 21:1-6 1 Samuel 16-20 Leviticus 24:5-9 2 Samuel 7:12-16 Micah 7:18;6:8 Numbers 28:3-10 Romans 12:1-2 Hosea 6:1-6 Hosea 2:2-8 Hosea 4:1 Hosea 8:1-2 1 Peter 3:8-16 2 Timothy 2:24-26 Calvary Chapel Reston Station 1950 Isaac Newton Sq.

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? Related verses: Genesis 1:31 Genesis 2:9 Genesis 3 John 21:25 John 20:31 John 2:1-11 Proverbs 14:12 Proverbs 16:25 1 Corinthians 1:21 Genesis 9:1 Genesis 11:3 James 3:13-18 John 7:24 Jeremiah 17:9 Proverbs 2:1-5 John 15:7-8 Luke 12:42-48 Calvary Chapel Reston Station 1950 Isaac Newton Sq.

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?

After a brief review of last weeks lessons, we'll jump into the concluding lifelong lessons drawn from the remainder of Matthew chapter ten. Our sermon questions are as follows: 3)How does God fuel our faithfulness and courage in the face of external opposition and internal fears? 4) How does God help me defeat the fear of man, so that I can confess Christ always?
