This week we continue in the ministry of the Word in Matthew’s gospel. Our message is and is taken from [esvignore]Matthew 3:1-12[/esvignore]. Here we are introduced to John the Baptist, but unlike other gospel writers, Matthew gets right to the meat of John’s purpose – repentance, and the urgency of repenting. John is the forerunner, we learned about him in the Gospel of John, and now we get to focus on his very pressing message.
- A Voice in the Wilderness
- The Cleansing of Repentance
- Fruit of Repentance
- The Urgent Need for RepentanceJohn’s Call is to Get Real
