Matthew 18  4-30-16 — April 30, 2016

Matthew 18  4-30-16

Matthew 18:13  “And if he should find it, assuredly, I say to you, he rejoices more over that sheep than over the ninety-nine that did not go astray.”

‭‭This is how Jesus rejoices when one person finds salvation in Him! Jesus loves the people who have been saved, but He rejoices even more when just 1 person comes to Him. Let us who already follow Him reach others and rejoice with them!

Matthew 18  4-29-16 — April 29, 2016

Matthew 18  4-29-16

Matthew 18:1  At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”

‭‭Verse 1 shows the selfish nature of humans…we naturally want to have everything be about us, and be the best. We won’t ever be perfect, but let us pray for SELFLESSNESS today. We need the Holy Spirit to help us……..🙌

Matthew 17  4-28-16 — April 28, 2016

Matthew 17  4-28-16

Matthew 15:25, 27  “He said, “Yes.” And when he had come into the house, Jesus anticipated him, saying, “What do you think, Simon? From whom do the kings of the earth take customs or taxes, from their sons or from strangers?”…[27] Nevertheless, lest we offend them, go to the sea, cast in a hook, and take the fish that comes up first. And when you have opened its mouth, you will find a piece of money; take that and give it to them for Me and you.””

‭‭Jesus is God, and no one can deny it! The fish and the coin proved the fact, but Jesus knowing about the tax beforehand also backs up the claim. Let’s not doubt, have faith in Jesus today….who is the Son of God!!

Matthew 17  4-27-16 — April 27, 2016

Matthew 17  4-27-16

Matthew 17:20  “You don’t have enough faith,” Jesus told them. “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible. ”

Wow! This essentially proves that we don’t have the amount of faith to equal a mustard seed. Jesus said that we could perform miracles if we just had that faith. We need to ask Jesus for faith today. Will we ever be moving mountains…probably not! But we can still trust in Him!

Matthew 17  4-26-16 — April 26, 2016

Matthew 17  4-26-16

Matthew 17:5  But even as he spoke, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my dearly loved Son, who brings me great joy. Listen to him.”

‭‭Wow! If you need proof that Jesus is the Son of God, then you’ve got it! The Transfiguration is one of 3 times that the Father speaks on the topic of His Son. Do you need more proof than that??

Matthew 16  4-25-16 — April 25, 2016

Matthew 16  4-25-16

Matthew 16:23  Jesus turned to Peter and said, “Get away from me, Satan! You are a dangerous trap to me. You are seeing things merely from a human point of view, not from God’s.”

‭‭Wow! Jesus just told Peter to get away from Him, and called him Satan. Jesus was upset because the disciples were not looking at the big picture from God’s point of view. They were looking from their own small human perspective.

Let’s pray that God would give us the eternal Godly perspective today.

Matthew 16  4-24-16 — April 24, 2016

Matthew 16  4-24-16

Matthew 16:20  “Then he sternly warned the disciples not to tell anyone that he was the Messiah.”

‭‭You may wonder why He told the disciples not to tell people He was the Messiah. I believe that He said this because a true belief in Jesus requires a conviction and call from the Holy Spirit in each person. You cannot simply decide in your head, you have to believe with your heart.

Worship today in church. 💒

Matthew 16  4-23-16 — April 23, 2016

Matthew 16  4-23-16

Matthew 16:4, 12  “Only an evil, adulterous generation would demand a miraculous sign, but the only sign I will give them is the sign of the prophet Jonah. ” Then Jesus left them and went away. [12] Then at last they understood that he wasn’t speaking about the yeast in bread, but about the deceptive teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees.

The Pharisees were against Jesus through it all! They demanded a sign because they had no faith that Jesus truly was the Messiah. Then, the disciples failed to have the faith to know that Jesus could care for them. See, we people need help. That’s why we rely on Jesus. 

Call on Jesus today….He’s been waiting to hear from YOU!


Matthew 15  4-22-16 — April 22, 2016

Matthew 15  4-22-16

Matthew 15:37 They all ate as much as they wanted. Afterward, the disciples picked up seven large baskets of leftover food.

‭‭Wow! Jesus had performed another miracle in front of the people. Do you know that you have seen miracles too? (YES, YOU!!!) For starters, Jesus still heals and causes great things to happen…but, have you looked in the mirror lately? YOU are a miracle, You have been saved! Thank Him for His gift today!

Matthew 15  4-21-16 — April 21, 2016

Matthew 15  4-21-16

Matthew 15:31 “The crowd was amazed! Those who hadn’t been able to speak were talking, the crippled were made well, the lame were walking, and the blind could see again! And they praised the God of Israel.”

‭‭Jesus had done so many wonderful works! People were amazed and they chose to follow Him. Not everyone was enthusiastic though…..will you follow after Him??


I love Jesus and playing dress up.
