Listen to him

Matthew 17:1-9

Listening to him.

Today Peter started the sermon with a quiz about what sayings or phrases we think Jesus actually said. We believe that Jesus is more than a moral teacher, he is the only son of God, and God incarnate.

Jesus appeared with Moses (law) and Elijah (prophet) – but God was saying that Jesus was more than these, he was his only son. God reveals himself in Jesus.

  • God said “listen to him”

Are we really listening to Jesus? –If we have really heard Jesus then it will be evidenced by our actions.

Challenge to read Matthew 5-7 and reflect on whether we are really following what he tells us.

If we only acknowledge Jesus’ teachings as good moral things to follow and we do not have a relationship with him then we are not truly living God’s will.

Jesus gives us the Holy Spirit to empower us.

Do you live out your life in a relationship with Jesus?
