"Don't Act Like a Pharisees" from Matthew 23:1-12

What should be done:
We should apply what we have learned.
Be a real minister.

The main focus in service to God is to Himself not to you. That's why you don't act like a pharisees.

Moses is the most humble in the mankind of history.

Many people look very good and kind to others but deep inside they are just doing it for a purpose.
What good is it? for they don't have the heart for God.
These people will honor from thier lips but they are far from me.

Luke 11:43 “Woe to you Pharisees, because you love the most important seats in the synagogues and respectful greetings in the marketplaces.

Whatever that comes out of your mouth make sure you can do it. We should do what we teach.

Ministry not showmistry.

When you pray - with sincerity.
Be careful not to do your act of righteousness to be seen by man for you will not inherit the treasure in heaven.

Even in preaching they preach in envy and rivalry. Be remind do nothing out of selfish ambition.

Phylacteries - boxes containing verses.

Deuteronomy 22:12 Make tassels on the four corners of the cloak you wear.

Most of the time we like to be treated well to be VIP.
They want themselves to be always comfortable.

Sad to pay nowadays servant of Christ wants to be celebrity.

Matthew 23:8-10
8 “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. 9 And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. 10 Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Messiah.

Take note that you are not to be called Rabbi.

Don't call anyone Father. Not even spiritual father or mother as some Christians' does.

In the worlds point of view you must be called with a title to be respected. But in the Bible's point of view Respect God not man in regards to title.
God opposes the proud, who ever humbler himself will be exalted.

  • Christ Like attitude. Look to Jesus

  • If you look to Jesus we can have attitude of being a servant.

  • Philippians 2:5-8
    5 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:
    6 Who, being in very nature[a] God,
    did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
    7 rather, he made himself nothing
    by taking the very nature[b] of a servant,
    being made in human likeness.
    8 And being found in appearance as a man,
    he humbled himself
    by becoming obedient to death—
    even death on a cross!

  • We should apply what we have learn

  • Be a real minister.

Nice Christian Life Experiences~~~
