The Hero & Judgement | Brian Sorgenfrei

Scripture Reference: Matthew 25:31-46

In the last public teaching before his arrest and crucifixion, our hero Jesus tells the audience about the judgment to come. It’s a sobering passage, but it reveals Jesus love for this world and how committed He is to rid this world of everything poisonous. Jesus is the judge who sees all, is opposed to all evil and amazingly receives every act of generosity as if it was done for Him. He’s a judge who can be trusted.

Sermon Points:

  • The Certainty of judgment (vv. 31-34, 36)
  • The Criteria of judgment (vv. 33-45)
  • The Judge of Judgment

The Hero Drops The Mic | Les Newsom

Scripture Reference: Matthew 22:23-33

Jesus’ confrontation with the Sadducees unveils the flaws in the materialists worldview. Denying the resurrection not only makes us theologically in error, but we rob ourselves of the joy it takes to thrive in a world full of unfulfilled longings and death.

Sermon Points:

  • The Problem with the Materialist
  • The Correction of Jesus

The Coronation of the Hero | Brian Sorgenfrei

 Scripture Reference: Matthew 21:1-11, 14-16

Our hero enters Jerusalem in a way that reveals very clearly his claims about himself and therefore stirs up quite a bit of energy. Jesus’ parade into town on what is now known as “Palm Sunday” is boldly proclaiming Himself as King. However, this King’s carrier is a common donkey. Combine these two facts, and Jesus is revealing just the kind of King that He is! One that is humble enough to die for His people.

Sermon Points:

  • The Hero Is King
  • The Hero Is Humble

Sermon Points:

  • The Son of Man Will Come
  • Jesus’ Followers Will Be Ready
