Matthew 25:31-46 | Your Life Matters

Gospel of Matthew: The Upside Down Kingdom

January 14, 2018 • Bert Alcorn

Big Idea: Jesus is preparing his disciples for his absence and ultimately posing the question: Did we hear the words of Jesus and obey them? There is a day of judgment when our faith and works will be presented before the King and Jesus will examine our lives and their fruit and set us in eternity or in Hell. Your life matters. Jesus wants you to live today as one who extends the Kingdom of God into this world. Key Texts: Matthew 25:31-46; Daniel 7:13-14; Revelation 19:11-16; Ezekiel 34:11-17; Philippians 2:12-13; Ephesians 2:1-10; Matthew 5:3-16
