Sermon Outline, August 6, 2017, “The Compassionate King”

The Compassionate King

Matthew 4:23-25

The Kingship of Jesus

            His Kingship was prophetic

~ Matthew 1:1          The record of the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah, the son of David, the son of Abraham:

~ Matthew 28:18-20            And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

            His Kingship was problematic

~ Matthew 9:3          And some of the scribes said to themselves, “This fellow blasphemes.”

 

The Compassion of Jesus

            His Compassion was approved on high

~ Luke 4:18-19         The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me,
Because He anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor.
He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives,
And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set free those who are oppressed,
19 To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord.”

            His Compassion was apparently specific

~ Luke 4:18   The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me,
Because He anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor.
He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives,
And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set free those who are oppressed,

 

The Commission of Jesus

            His commission is to carry on

~ Matthew 28:19      Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,

            His commission is to care

~ Matthew 9:35-38  Jesus was going through all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every kind of disease and every kind of sickness.

36 Seeing the people, He felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and dispirited like sheep without a shepherd. 37 Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. 38 Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.”
