Sermon Matthew 5
Delbert Enns pastor www.EasTview.org
For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or one stroke of a letter will pass away from the law until all things are accomplished.
Matthew 5:18 CSB
Jesus is our hero. To be blessed we need to follow Jesus. We need to pour ourselves into Jesus.
Jesus does not shy away from hard sayings.
1. The Bible is true
2. It's about Jesus
3. How will it change your life?
1. Not a dot will pass away. How to read this book? V18 refers to v17. Jesus came to fulfill the law. It's supernatural book. Not just a book. It's divine. From God. Inspired. Every part of every character. It's authoritative. It has to be followed.
Who can do it? There is a broken world. Jesus has to fulfill it. He died an unjust death on the cross. Father forgive them for they don't know what they are doing.
Jesus redeems fallen world. He has fulfilled scripture.
2. The Bible is about Jesus not about you. Christocentric mindset is what you need to understand the Bible.
Jesus was the ultimate sacrifice.
A cup is just a cup. If your pour something in it. Jesus fills the cup. He's the ultimate prophet. He rewrites it all. He is the hero of the story. We're now walking into his presence directly.
When Jesus broke the bread they recognized him. He had explained how he is the fulfillment.
3. Change your life. If you understand what Christ did, it changes your life. Jesus did it. He helps you understand the Bible. The focal point of the story.
Your identity in Christ. Concerning this salvation, the prophets, who prophesied about the grace that would come to you, searched and carefully investigated.
1 Peter 1:10 CSB
You are blessed if you allow Jesus in or you are an empty cup.
I'm no longer a slave to fear
