Matthew

Filter by Chapter Number

Light of the World

Matthew 5:14-16

God is light: Jesus described Himself as 'the light of the world', but He told His disciples that they are the light of the world! Does that statement make them like God? No.

Christ Fulfills God's Word

Matthew 5:17-18

Was Jesus against the Jewish religion? Many people thought He was because He overruled many little regulations which God had never intended.

God's Word Always Achieves its Purpose

Matthew 5:19-20

Nothing that God says is ever wrong. There is a purpose behind every word, and the words stand until they have done their job.

The Roots of Murder Exposed

Matthew 5:21-22

Murder is bad. Almost everybody agrees. But however the killing might take place, it starts with wrong attitudes in the heart.

From Broken Bonds to Restored Relationships

Matthew 5:23-26

Unsettled relationships can get in the way of worship. Can we say that we love the Lord our God with all our heart and soul and strength, and yet not love our neighbour as ourselves?

The Fruits of Lust

Matthew 5:27-30

Adultery is wrong, as wrong as greed, hatred and breaking promises. But it has an even greater relationship-breaking effect.

The Fruits of Lovelessness

Matthew 5:31-32

There are no winners in divorce. Marriage breakdown is always a painful business, often after a long process of eroded trust and the suspicion of infidelity.

Truth in a World of Lies

Matthew 5:33-37

If there were no lies, there would be no need for oaths. But there are many lies, so how can we tell who is telling the truth?

Release from Revenge

Matthew 5:38-42

Justice is good but revenge is bad.

From Hate to Love

Matthew 5:43-48

Enemies are hostile; they seek to take what does not belong to them, attacking people and property to gain power over them. Naturally, we hate our enemies and want bad things to happen to them.
