Christ in Matthew

Christ in Matthew is a part of a series of devotions called, "Words of Christ." As we consider the very words of Christ, let us seek to love, know, and serve Him more fully each day. 

18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefor and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

Matthew 28:18-20, NKJV

Christ in Matthew

This page includes devotionals from the series: the Words of Christ. The links to the sermons below consider Christ's teaching from the book of Matthew. Often the same, or similar, words were spoken in other Gospels as well. When that occurs, the Scripture reference to that Gospel is also included in the link below.

Matthew is a rich treasure of Christ's ministry on this earth. It includes His Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7), the temptation of Christ (Matthew 4), many parables, many conversations between Jesus and His disciples, as well as conversations with the religious leaders of the day.

As we consider the words of Matthew 28:18-20, let us take to heart His Words. All authority has been given to Him in heaven and on earth. He is our Great High Priest, our Great Shepherd, and our Great and wondrous Savior.

The following is a quote from the Women's Devotional Bible (ESV):

The Gospel [of Matthew] traces God's continuing work of salvation within Israel and, through Christ, extends it to all peoples of the earth. As a result of Israel's rejection of Jesus, a new community of faith is born--the church.

How amazing for us, as believers in Christ, to see the great ways in which the Gospel of Christ grew from such small beginnings to a church which spreads across the far stretches of this great world in which we live.

Let us go forth this day praising and serving Him, alone, thanking Him for the great salvation He has provided for us. He is our bridge between us and God. Through Him we have life and have it more abundantly!

God Bless You,
