MATTHEW 27:15-54 – IN REMEMBRANCE OF ME

A LORD’S TABLE (COMMUNION) MESSAGE

 

1 Corinthians 11:24-25and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, "Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me."
 In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me."

When we come to the Lord’s Table, we are remembering what Jesus did for us. Here are some of the things we remember!

 

HIS BETRAYAL BY HIS OWN PEOPLE – Matthew 27:15-26, Acts 3:13-15

 

HIS MISTREATMENT – Matthew 27:27-30

 

HIS CRUCIFIXION – Matthew 27:31-38

 

HIS HUMILIATION – Matthew 27:39-44

 

HIS DARKNESS – Matthew 27:45-49

 

HIS VICTORY – Matthew 27:50-54, Luke 23:45, John 19:30

JUDGES 15:9-16:31 – A MIXED BAG

When we use the term "a mixed bag" we are thinking that what we are talking about has a variety of good and bad elements.  If we say, "The concert was a mixed bag," we are thinking that it was good and bad.  Samson's life was also "a mixed bag".  God used him mightily in spite of his personal failures.

 

PRESUMPTION

 

1. Israel presumed that the Philistines had to be appeased. Judges 15:9-13

Sometimes we are like the Israelites. We would rather appease than confront.

 

2. The Philistines presumed that Samson could be stopped. Judges 15:9-14, 16:1-3, 5, 21-25

Satan will be constantly trying to stop the Child of God, just as the Philistines tried to stop Samson.

 

3. Samson presumed that He could live as he pleased. Judges 16:1-20

Samson especially seemed to think that he could do whatever he wanted with the ladies.  He kept company with a Harlot and then with Delilah.

Samson seemed to think that he could maintain a relationship with Delilah, who was actually trying to deliver him into the Philistines' hands, and not pay any consequences.

We must realize that like Samson, we are not beyond God's hand of discipline.                             Proverbs 3:11-12, Galatians 6:7-8

 

POWER

1. To Win - Judges 15:14-17

2. To Escape - Judges 16:1-3

3. To Retaliate - Judges 16:26-31

I believe that He was used of God to bring Glory to God through this action.

 

PRAYER

1. Samson prayed and his thirst was quenched. Judges 15:18-20

2. Samson prayed and his strength was used one last time for God's glory. Judges 16:28-31

PROVERBS 23:29-30 – WHY I DO NOT DRINK

Although the Bible does not outlaw drinking, but drunkenness, my personal stand is to totally abstain.

MATTHEW 6:13 – THINE IS THE KINGDOM

THE LORDS PRAYER #8 0F 8

 

I personally wonder how long God needs to bombard us with His loving-kindness, mercy, grace, and yes discipline, before we surrender to Him. In preparing for this message I was struck in a new way by the fact that the Lord's Prayer concludes in absolute submission to God.  That makes me think that one of the reasons that we do not see more prayers answered is because we are not submissive to God. We are holding out for our will, our own plans and our own satisfaction.

 

The Lord's Prayer in Matthew concludes with the words, "For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen."

 

Do you see surrender there?

Do you see submission there?

 

"Thine is the Kingdom" - ALL AUTHORITY BELONGS TO HIM!

 

These words come off our lips very easily, "Thine is the Kingdom."

But I fear that our hearts do not always match our lips.

 

Matthew 15:8 - "This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me."

 

I fear that in our hearts in various ways we say, "MY kingdom come!"

We want our time to be used the way we want to use it.

We want our money to be used the way we want to use it.

We want our children to succeed in the way we want them to succeed.

We want our plans to be approved by God so we will have what we want.

We want our church to be comfortable, and not necessarily as aggressive as Jesus would have us to be.

 

What is authority? To me it is right to tell someone what to do. You can certainly see how God has that authority.

 

* He has authority because he is creator. Genesis 1:1

* He has authority because he is omnipotent. Jeremiah 32:17

* He has authority because He is our Father. John 1:12

 

And what about the Lord Jesus, does He have authority? Matthew 28:18, Colossians 1:17-19, Philippians 2:10-11, 1 Corinthians 15:25

 

And we must also remember that there is judgment coming.

The unsaved will face Jesus at the "Great White Throne". Revelation 20:11-12

The saved will meet "Him at the Judgment Seat of Christ." 2 Corinthians 5:10, Romans 14:12

 

God the Father has authority.

God the Son has authority.

Does God the Holy Spirit have authority?

 

Although He works in cooperation with the Father and the Son, He still has authority. He's the Spirit of God. He's the Spirit of Christ. His directions and leadership is to be followed!

We should not quench the Spirit through unbelief or grieve the Spirit through disobedience. 1 Thessalonians 5:19, Ephesians 4:30

 

So what are we saying when we say "thine is the kingdom"?

We are saying that God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit have every right to rule right now.

 

We are recognizing God's right to rule.

We are recognizing God's rule in our lives.

We are submitting to God's Will, in every part of the prayer which we have just prayed.

If it's God's Kingdom, He is King!

We are saying that He is king over our bodies.

We are saying that He is king over our behavior.

We are saying that He is king over our plans.

We are saying that He is king in this church.

We are saying that He is king in our families.

 

"Thine is the Power" - ALL ABILITY BELONGS TO HIM!

 

We try too hard.

We face a problem and try to solve it ourselves.

We face a challenge and try to solve it ourselves.

We try to serve Christ in our own strength.

We try to build this church in own strength.

We try to witness in our own strength.

We try to live the right way in our own strength.

When in reality, as we pray, "thine is the power", we are realizing that we can't do it in our own strength. Genesis 18:14, Jeremiah 32:27, Luke 18:27

 

How has God planned for His work to get done through His children? Through dependence upon Him! John 14:12-14, John 15:4-7

 

"Thine is the Glory" - ALL ADORATION BELONGS TO HIM!

 

There is another problem that we have which requires our total surrender.

We want too much of the attention for ourselves.

We want too much of the credit for ourselves.

We want to have glory for what is accomplished. Luke 17:7-10, Matthew 23:11

 

We need to realize that it is God, the Father, and God the Holy Spirit who are deserving of glory.

Read Revelation 4

 

"Thine is the Kingdom" - ALL AUTHORITY BELONGS TO HIM!

"Thine is the Power" - ALL ABILITY BELONGS TO HIM!

"Thine is the Glory" - ALL ADORATION BELONGS TO HIM!

 

the issue comes back to our submission or surrender.

How long will it take for us to surrender in our hearts to the Lord Jesus?

GALATIANS 2:20 – GRATEFUL LIVING

 

Do you appreciate what Christ has done for you? You can show your appreciation by the way you live. Paul was grateful for what Christ had done in his life and it was his motivation for godly living.

 

In Galatians 2:20 Paul's appreciation shows as he tells us how he lived in gratitude towards Christ, "who loved me, and gave himself for me."

 

MY POSITION - " I am crucified with Christ:"

Christ died for me, therefore, when He died, I died. Romans 6:1-4, 10-14

I should see myself as dead to the power of sin in my life.

 

MY POWER - "...nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me:"

Christ is powerful. Colossians 1:15-18

His power is available in my life. Philippians 4:13, Ephesians 1:19-23, 3:16-17a

 

MY PRACTICE - "...and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God..."
