Works And Judgement: Matthew 25:31-46 Explained

YouTube video

If you thought this teaching from Jesus was about your need to perform better, you’re about to discover something very different. You’re about to discovered that this discussion about outward works it’s not about quantity, but rather about quality. And the quality is not measured by the amount, but rather or not you are in Christ, and she perform its work.

In Matthews letter found in chapter 25 Jesus tells a story about sheep and goats. We see that there are two groups of people where Jesus begins listing a laundry list of outdoor performance.

The items we find in this list that Jesus is talking about, include feeding the hungry, giving drink to the thirsty, inviting strangers in, clothing the naked, and visiting sick people in prison.

Now immediately, the legalist gets out their legal pad and starts building out a list of things they need to do to be right with Jesus. They want to make sure they do every single one of these things, so on judgment day, they won’t be told to depart from Jesus.

This beauty stems from a very distorted teaching from Matthew’s account. In this video, what we’re going to discover is that the context is not about how much we are doing for Jesus. The context is not about quantity, but rather quality.

We’re going to see a very interesting word that will require your attention in order to get the point. That word is “one”. So to learn more, play the video above to find out what was really going on in Matthew 25:31-46.

Mike Cynar grew up in church and observed that countless people would go to church and then just stop. The church always referred to them as ‘fake Christians’ or ‘backsliders’ but Mike discovered the problem was deeper. The problem was the church message. The message was 90% behavior improvement and how bad you are, with a pinch of who you are in Christ, It was like every sermon was being preached to the church of Corinth. It’s in the Baptist church, Catholic, Pentecost, and most every other church. After discovering the true gospel message and how we are made right with God because of what ‘Jesus did’ (not what ‘we do’) Mike set out to free believers from behavior improvement programs and bring them back to Jesus. The Result – Jesus Without Religion was launched.
