TODAY'S MESSAGE

Indifferent Insiders (v.20)

Matthew 11:20 Then Jesus began to denounce the towns in which most of his miracles had been performed, because they did not repent.

They had received but they had not repented.
They had been challenged but they had not changed.

 

Woe to the Unchanged (v.21-22)

Matthew 11:21a “Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida!

“Woe” includes both the ideas of WARNING and COMPASSION.

Matthew 11:21b For if the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes..

Matthew 11:22 But I tell you, it will be more bearable for Tyre and Sidon on the day of judgment than for you.

God’s judgement takes into account opportunity and understanding.

God is JUDGE…but he is also JUST!

 

Woe to the Proud (v.23-24)

Matthew 11:23a And you, Capernaum, will you be lifted to the heavens? No, you will go down to Hades.

Isaiah 14:14-15 [Babylon said,] “I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.” But you are brought down to the realm of the dead, to the depths of the pit.

Matthew 11:23b For if the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Sodom, it would have remained to this day.

Matthew 11:24 But I tell you that it will be more bearable for Sodom on the day of judgment than for you.”

The greater the revelation, the greater the accountability.

 

Conclusion/Application:

“Jesus’ judgments and threats always start with the most spiritually advanced people, the people who know much but practice little. He doesn’t warn those who need conversion; he warns those who think they already have it.” — Matt Woodley

“Christian countries are in special trouble on judgment day, not because Jesus has not really been in their communities but because he has.” — Dale Bruner

GROUPS

We believe that significant life change best takes place in the context of intentional relationships. Groups are the places where real life and real issues are discussed. This is the environment to celebrate the successes and good times of life, as well as comfort one another in the tough and disappointing times. It’s a place to be encouraged, equipped, and challenged to grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ.
