The Provision of God in the New Year.

Our theme for the year will be "Doing Divine Things Together."

The book of Matthew has 5 discourses and 5 narrative sections presenting Christ as the King. Our passage today is part of the Sermon on the Mount, which is not new information. As one author described, "It is the wisdom of God inviting all of us through faith to orient our vision, values, and habits from the ways of external righteousness to wholeheartedness towards God. Jesus' method of teaching uses thematic structures, images, and poetic language to allow His listeners more simple ways to remember, meditate on, and memorize Christ's heart on how to live every day."

A heart prepared for worship is a matter of personal reflection and public testimony.

What does it mean for our hearts to be prepared for worship? Believe it or not, this has just as much to do with others as it does with ourselves. We must approach worship with inward purity, coming to God with a clean heart. But as one commentator puts it, God does not isolate our worship of Him from our relationship with our neighbor. In fact, having our hearts prepared for worship is a combination of personal reflection and public testimony.
