June 8th, 2008

(Matthew Ch. 6)

“And your Father who sees in secret will reward you”

                                                (Matthew 6:4,6,18)

Introduction:    In Matthew 5, Jesus spoke of making one’s religion public to glorify the Father (see esp. vv. 13-16).  Now, in chapter 6, he will emphasize hidden discipleship.

I.                   Three hidden devotions

                   A.            6:1-4                 ____________________

                   B.            6:5-15               _____________________

                   C.            6:16-18             _____________________

II.                Three misdirected devotions

             A.      6:19-21       ______________________

             B.      6:22-23       ______________________

             C.      6:24            ______________________

III.             How can this be?   (6:25-34)


Conclusion:    This chapter will be rejected by the merely curious, but embraced by the more consecrated, seekers of the kingdom of heaven.
