Mat 13:31-47    The kingdom of heaven is like:  a mustard seed,   yeast,   a treasure hidden in a field, a man looking for fine pearls,  a net

REMEMBER:   Phil 3

Phil 3:3    We worship God through His Spirit,  and our pride is in Christ Jesus    We do not put trust in ourselves or anything we can do.

Phil 3:4-6 “although I might be able to put trust in myself.”  “ No one could find fault with the way I obeyed the law of Moses.”

Phil 3:7-8  Those things were important to me,  but now I think they are worth nothing because of Christ….. I think that all things are worth nothing compared with the greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.   I know they are worthless trash.  This allows me to have Christ and to belong to him.

Phil 3:9   I am right with God, not because I followed the law, but because I believed in Christ. God uses my faith to make me right with him.

Phil 3:10-11 I want to know Christ and the power that raised him from the dead.... I have hope that I myself will be raised from the dead.

Phil 3:12-15  Continuing toward Our Goal    12  .. I have not yet reached the goal, but I continue trying…  Christ wants me to do that…. 13 .. there is one thing I always do:  Forgetting the past and straining toward what is ahead… 14 I keep trying to reach the goal…. 15  All of us who are spiritually mature should think this way

Phil 3:16-17    we should continue following the truth we already have.  … All of you should try to follow my example and to copy those who live the way we showed youRemember: 

Mat 7:21-23  “Not everyone who says to me, “LORD, LORD,” will enter the kingdom of heaven  (15-20  Jesus talks about False Prophets)

Mat 13:24-30  The kingdom of heaven is like  a man who planted good seed in his field….  36-43  Jesus explains the meaning    (41 they will gather out of his kingdom all who cause sin and who do evil)

Mat 13:51 Jesus:    “Do you understand all these things?”

Mat 18:1-7   “ Who is greatest in the kingdom of heaven ?   (5-7 “causes”)     

Mat 18:23-35   “The kingdom of heaven is like  a king who decided to collect the money owed him.    33 You should have showed mercy to that other servant, just as I showed mercy to you.  35  This king did what my heavenly Father will do to you if you do not forgive …..
