The Prophesied Servant King (Matthew 12:15-21)

September 15, 2013 Speaker: Rev. Dave Dorst Series: The King and His Kingdom! - A Series in the Book of Matthew

Topic: Sermons Passage: Matthew 12:15–12:21

I hope that you are having a great fall and start to the school year. With sport schedules, work, homework, retreats, and general busyness, I hope you were listening closely to the sermon on the Sabbath this past week. May we all approach the Sabbath with a stronger resolve to resist (extra-Biblical) legalism, but also to embrace the rest and joy of a holy Sabbath! One great way to celebrate the Sabbath this week would be to join us at our Celebrate Missions Night. Free dinner and a great way to hear about missions trips, missionaries and groups with which our church is involved. Details are below.

Our sermon passage this week is almost entirely a quotation from the prophet Isaiah that helps us understand why Jesus acts the way that He does. While I preached on strong men advancing the kingdom last month, this week I'll talk about the advance of the kingdom through obscurity, humility, gentleness and non-confrontation. The two sermons won't contradict as much as it sounds like they would. Then again, they might! The gospel often embraces paradox, as a sacrificial Lamb later shows up as a roaring, devouring Lion.

See you Sunday, Rev. Dave Dorst
