Matthew 19:13-20:34 We break free the pull of this world by having a heart that is open and receptive like a child, surrendering our wants, wanting God’s generosity to be lavished on others and serving rather than being served.
Note: There were some issues in recording the first few minutes of the sermon. Matthew 19:1-12 God created and defined the covenant of marriage, and therefore He alone sets the grounds for divorce, which He hates; nevertheless, God continues to hold out hope in the gospel for all who have disobeyed Him in this area.
Matthew 18 We come to Christ initially with child-like humility and then continue to follow Him under the loving discipline of a local church.
Matthew 17 As we behold the glories of Jesus Christ, we will become more like Him.
