"And the Lord gave me an answer, and said
Put the vision in writing and make it clear on stones,
so that the reader may go quickly.". Habacuque 2:2

#015 Prayer

Matthew 7:7-12

"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened". Do you believe that?

#014 Bad Judgment

Matthew 7:1-6

"Do not judge, or you too will be judged", said Jesus. What does it mean? That judges should consider all criminals innocent? Or that in the next soccer game there will no longer be a referee running on the field? Not so.

#013 More than birds and lilies

Matthew 6:25-34

"Look at the birds of the air," said Jesus. "Consider the lilies of the field." Have you ever seen a bird worried about the stock market, or a lily wondering what clothes to wear? God takes care of them, despite the fact that they were not created in the image and likeness of God, like you and I are.

#012 Treasures

Matthew 6:19-24

"No one can serve two masters," said Jesus. "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Where is your treasure?

#011 Our Father

Matthew 6:9-15

To pray is to recognize that you’re weak, helpless and dependent on God. This goes against your natural inclinations, because since your childhood you have been taught to be independent and, as an adult, you read self-improvement literature. Praying goes against that natural trend; it is denial of self-sufficiency.

#010 Son or Hypocrite?

Matthew 6:1-8

The sixth chapter of Matthew starts off talking about two things: the sublime relationship that God desires to have with his creatures, and the shameful hypocrisy of religion.

#009 You Don't Know the Half of Me

Matthew 5:17-26

Jesus did not come to abolish the law, but to fulfill it. What law am I talking about? God gave Moses the Ten Commandments and more than six hundred precepts that make up the law of God. You find them mostly in the first five books of the Bible.

#008 Losers

Matthew 5:1-16

The Sermon on the Mount is one of the best known passages in the gospel, but not one of the best understood. First, its targets are the disciples who come to Jesus, not the crowd.

#007 Fishers of Men

Matthew 4:18-25

In Galilee Jesus again finds the brothers Simon and Andrew. The first time they met in Judea, these two disciples of John the Baptist heard John say that Jesus was the Lamb of God. At that time they followed him and Simon got a new name - Peter. This is in the first chapter of the Gospel of John

#006 Person or Religion?

Matthew 4:12-17

When Jesus learns that John, the Baptist, is in jail, he comes into Galilee, the region where he had been raised. He adopts Capernaum as the headquarters for his ministry, and it is there that he does most of his signs and miracles.

#005 The Answers

Matthew 4:1-11

Before starting his ministry Jesus must pass a test. So, the Holy Spirit leads him into the wilderness to be tested. And while God tests him, Satan tempts him.

#004 In Good Company

Matthew 3:13-17

Jesus walks sixty miles from Galilee to Jordan, just to be baptized by John the Baptist. He must think baptism is something pretty important!
