Cary Cox, from Matthew 25:31-46. Jesus tells his disciples that he is coming back as the great King to judge the world! Salvation is by grace through faith, but judgment will be according to works. Our works will be evidence on that day that we are his. Particularly, Jesus teaches that how we treat his brothers – other disciples – is how we treat him!
Cary Cox from Matthew 18:1-14. What is life like in the church while we wait on Christ’s return? Jesus gives practical teaching about life in his kingdom community. We can enter the community only through miraculous conversion, which humbles us before God like a child. And this conversion transforms relationships in the church. We love and welcome and forgive each other. Jesus gives serious warnings about harming his disciples!
