Most modern ministers who only emphasize the positive aspects of Jesus’ teaching, avoid Matthew 23 like the plague. In Matthew 23, Christ
denounces the religious leaders of Israel as hypocrites for their outward show of religion, but had no inward heart for God. They failed to discern what is most important in their religious activities.
This scathing sermon is filled with warnings of judgment, woes upon hypocrisy, and dripping with sarcasm. READ MATTHEW 23. It is no wonder that after Jesus finishes this sermon, the Pharisees plot to kill Him (26:1-4).
“Pray without ceasing” doesn’t mean to spend all your time on your knees or go around “saying” prayers.
It means maintain an attitude of prayer in everything you do.
Our civil leaders serve to protect us from evil and to praise those who do well (Rom. 13:3; 1 Pet. 2:14). We are more secure because of their service.
The account of the good Samaritan is a story about Jewish prejudice. After Jesus states the commandment to love your neighbor as yourself, a lawyer asks, “Who is my neighbor?”
The Pharisees and lawyers were like that. They would play a lively song, but God wouldn’t dance to their music. They would play a sad song to God but He wouldn’t weep. Likewise, when God plays music that is lively and joyous, to Him, they sit bored and indifferent.
Jesus asked three times, “What went ye out for to see?” “For to see” is old English meaning, “For what purpose did you go into the wilderness?” The question refers to their motives—“Why did you go into the wilderness to hear John?”
This is a good question for us to consider. “What went ye out for to see?” Why are you here today? God is more interested why you came to church today, than the fact you are sitting here. God is concerned more about the AIM in you coming than the ACT of you coming to church.
