Distinctive Christian Devotion (Matthew 6:1-4)

Andrew Roycroft, 11/12/2016
Part of the Matthew - Jesus is King series, preached at a Sunday Evening service

Belief and behaviour are inextricably linked in the teaching of Jesus Christ. In Matthew 6 the Saviour begins to explore and apply what Christian devotion and holiness ought really to look like. In this message we explore the distinctive tone and texture which our ‘righteousness’ should have, as well as some of the pitfalls along the way.

Matthew 6:1-4

1Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. 2Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. 3But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: 4That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly. (KJV)
