Matthew 22: 34–40 for LFM
Summary: The whole law, says Jesus, is fulfilled in self-giving love, agapē. Jesus thus shows his agreement with the basic traditions of Israel and also points forward to his own passion, death and resurrection. We are invited to accept his righteousness, his perfect fulfillment of the law of love, as our own.

Two Clues for Wonderful Living  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 22: 34–46
Summary: Jesus taught us that the two greatest commandments were exercising love for God and love for our neighbors. A godly person once said that in doing God’s will there is perfect peace. Perfect peace, then, will surely come to those who love God and others. And to have peace and meaning within is to discover that one is living a quite wonderful life. To love God with one’s whole being and to love others who are also children of God, is to discover life in its fullness. It is indeed an abundant life.

The Kingdom Snub  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 22: 1–14
Summary:  When we turn down the divine invitation into the kingdom of God, we are actually snubbing God. And if we do accept the invitation, we need to surrender our filthy clothes of sin and allow God to dress us in the garments of righteousness.

The Diagnosis and the Cure  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 22: 34–46
Summary:  Jesus is asked a standard question about the law and gives a standard answer. There’s little debate about the basic content of the law. The difficulty comes when we try to fulfill the law, when the problem of sin becomes clear. The law diagnoses the disease of sin but can’t cure it. Jesus points toward the cure with his follow-up question about the Messiah, who is to be seen not just as the Son of David but one in whom God is uniquely present to save.

Obeying God  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 22: 15–22
Summary: Christianity is a religion of feelings and of ideas and of performance. This last area, which includes trusting God enough to obey him, is something we can all do, even when our feelings fluctuate and we are flooded with doubts. Obedience gets us through to where faith returns. In the end, it is the practice of faith that makes God’s people.

Is Love Easier than the Law?  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 22: 34–46
Matthew 22: 34–40 for LFM
Summary: By answering the ambiguous question of an expert on biblical law, Jesus defines love of God and neighbor as the center of biblical ethics. God enables us to love, so that we can act in ways that bear witness to God. Love enables us to reclaim biblical teaching on ethics as gift, not burden.

God, Government — and, of Course, Taxes  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 22: 15–22
Summary: It is as vital today to resolve the conflict between loyalty to the “emperor” and loyalty to God as it was during Jesus’ time. If we ask Jesus for specifics on how we should manage our loyalties, we find that his answer is similar to the one he gave Pharisees and Herodians.

On the Tightrope  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 22: 15–22
Summary:  The Caesar many of us labor under today is work; and we are in the middle of a major cultural discussion about the place of work in our lives and what employers can and cannot ask of their employees. Meanwhile, family life also is increasingly busy and fragmented, leaving many with difficult, seemingly no-win choices. As we resonate with the dilemma facing Jesus, perhaps his response can shed light on our own.
