THE GOSPEL OF MATTHEW
Part 12: The Attitude of Your Heart
Jesus wanted to set forth the doctrine of His future
church, but the Jews were only interested in evicting the Romans
from their land. Many were involved in politics and the doctrine of
the God-man was diametrically opposed by every group because it
conflicted with their desires. The Son of God stated prayer,
tithing, piety, and good works would never grant them salvation.
God's chosen people were supposed to be the salt of the earth,
showing the heathen they were different from everyone else. They
were supposed to be light to the Gentiles by upholding the
Scriptures. They were even supposed to be more righteous than the
scribes and Pharisees. Jesus astonished them with His words, but the
God-man was simply setting the standard by which they should live.
Your attitude is like the aroma of your heart. Do you smell good?
How well do you measure up to the words of Jesus? Do you exemplify
salt, light, and righteousness?
All Scripture references are taken
from the King James Bible.
