Sunday Morning SoundBytes – 9/6/2015

Sunday’s final message from The Sermon on the Mount series was called Doing What You Hear, taken from Matthew 7:24-29. Here is a brief outline of the message:

I. The similarities between the two builders and their houses
   A. Both heard Christ’s words (Romans 10:17)
   B. Both built houses (1 Corinthians 3:10)
   C. Both houses were tested (1 Peter 1:7)

II. The differences between the two builders and their houses
   A. One put Jesus’ words into practice / the other did not put them into practice
      – 1 John 2:3-4
   B. One was a wise man / the other was a foolish man
      – Proverbs 8:35-36
   C. One built his house on the rock / the other built his house on sand
      – 1 Corinthians 3:11
   D. One house did not fall / the other fell with a great crash
      – Proverbs 10:25; 2 Corinthians 4:8-9

III. The response to Jesus’ sermon (Matthew 7:28-29)
   A. The crowds were amazed at the content of his teaching
   B. The crowds were amazed at the manner of his teaching
      1) Jesus taught as one who had authority
      2) Jesus did not teach like their teachers of the law
   C. What will be your response to Jesus’ sermon?
