Jesus called his disciples to a "above and beyond" way of living the law. While others looked for loopholes or ways to manage their behavior, Jesus addressed true, heartfelt obedience. He systematically works through six examples of Hebrew law, showing how each is an opportunity for elaborate love. Rather than dissect the six case studies, this sermon will focus on the overall strategy. Jesus wants whole bodied obedience to affect every relationship for the disciples. He not only delivers the message, but also provides the model. His love is elaborate.

We pay attention to powerful voices -- in the media, on the radio, and even in the wilderness. John the Baptist was one of those voices that demanded attention. He spoke of God's coming kingdom and favor for those who sought his forgiveness. John serves as an important pivot between OT expectation and Jesus's messianic ministry. When Jesus comes to him to receive baptism, the scene closes with the arresting voice of the heavenly Father, who deserves the last word on His Son.

Jonah grouses with God. He's angry, ranting, raging. Twice he expresses his desire to die. God listens, asks, questions, and gets the last word. Jonah ends with a question about concerns. What concerns Jonah? What concerns us? Sadly, our anger blinds us to others as image-bearers in need of God's mercy. Anger riles us up, wears us out, and exposes our fragility. What we need is a long look at God's large love to turn our anger away.

Long before JFK wrote Profiles of Courage, biblical authors recounted stories of faithful men and women: Moses, Joshua, Rahab, and Ruth. They describe a courage rooted in God's character, contrasting with today's self-discovered, reckless, stand-alone courage. In fact, Joshua begins his new role as Israel's leader responding to the fivefold refrain: Be strong and courageous. God and others speak courage into him. And because of our ongoing fears today, we need God and others to speak courage into us.
