Ask and It Will be Given
Topic: New Testament Expository Passage: Matthew 7:7–7:12
Week 17 of a 19 week sermon series titled "A City on the Hill". During this series we will be looking a Jesus' Sermon on the Mount. Throughout this sermon, we see Jesus flip the Jewish cultrual norm completely upside down by using the phrase, "You have hear it said....". The words “seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you” shapes the way we are to look at the world around us. Through this sermon, we learn to have enormous Kingdom hearts and eyes.
Throughout this sermon, we see things like:
Instead of murder → there is no name calling
Instead of no adultery → no lust
Instead of divorce sometimes → there are real restrictions
No false swearing → no swearing
Eye for an eye → don’t retaliate
Love your neighbor → love your enemy
Instead of worrying → don’t be anxious.
