This sermon is from the series Life With Jesus Part III.
Theme – What are rules for? Laws? Commands? Ultimately, they exist for one of two reasons: to protect us or to teach us an important value or priority. In this passage, Jesus seems to be breaking one of God’s rules (the Sabbath), and the Pharisees are quick to point it out. But Jesus understands that there is something greater than the rules. It’s the mercy of God. And when a rule conflicts with the showing of mercy, the rule needs to be reinterpreted.
The text for the sermon was taken from Matthew 12:1-14.
This sermon is from our Advent sermon series, A “With Jesus” Christmas.
Theme: If you’ve seen the Son, you’ve seen the Father. If you come to God like a little child, you’ll find close intimacy with the Father. Christ-like dependence on our heavenly “Daddy” makes the yoke easy and the burden light.
The text for the sermon was taken from Matthew 11:25-30.
