To show that we need to rejoice if we can be like our Teacher or our Master

IV. TEXT:

Matthew 10:25 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

Students are to be like their teacher, and slaves are to be like their master. And since I, the master of the household, have been called the prince of demons, the members of my household will be called by even worse names!

V. THESIS:

Be glad when you as a student you're like your teacher or a slave that is like his master.

VI. TITLE:

Not Greater

VII. EXPLICATION:

A. Author: Apostle Matthew

B. Time of Writing: 70 A.D. (uncertain)

C. Intended Audience: Jews

VIII. MAIN BODY:

A. A disciple (student) should be glad to be like his teacher (Luke 6:40, Acts 22:3)

Luke 6:40 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

Students are not greater than their teacher. But the student who is fully trained will become like the teacher.

Acts 22:3 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

Then Paul said, “I am a Jew, born in Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, and I was brought up and educated here in Jerusalem under Gamaliel. As his student, I was carefully trained in our Jewish laws and customs. I became very zealous to honor God in everything I did, just like all of you today.

1. Apostle Paul is very glad even mentioning the name of his teacher because needless to say Paul is like his teacher Gamaliel in trainings and zealousness.

a. It's our training from the LORD GOD - our daily devotion and prayer

b. It's our zealousness.

B. A slave (love slave) should be glad to be like his master

"This letter is from Jude, a slave of Jesus Christ and a brother of James."

"This letter is from Simon Peter, a slave and apostle of Jesus Christ."

"This letter is from James, a slave of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ."

Jude 1:1 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

This letter is from Jude, a slave of Jesus Christ and a brother of James. I am writing to all who have been called by God the Father, who loves you and keeps you safe in the care of Jesus Christ.

2 Peter 1:1 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

This letter is from Simon Peter, a slave and apostle of Jesus Christ. I am writing to you who share the same precious faith we have. This faith was given to you because of the justice and fairness of Jesus Christ, our God and Savior.

James 1:1 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

This letter is from James, a slave of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ. I am writing to the “twelve tribes”—Jewish believers scattered abroad. Greetings!

1. We are identified by this world by our Master, and His Name is LORD JESUS CHRIST of Nazareth.

2. Whether we like it or not, whoever is our Master is our controlling factor. (2 Peter 2:19, Romans 6:16,John 15:20,Genesis 4:7)

a. Better be slaves of righteousness and of LORD JESUS CHRIST rather than a slave to sin.

2 Peter 2:19 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

They promise freedom, but they themselves are slaves of sin and corruption. For you are a slave to whatever controls you.

Romans 6:16 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

Don’t you realize that you become the slave of whatever you choose to obey? You can be a slave to sin, which leads to death, or you can choose to obey God, which leads to righteous living.

John 15:20 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

Do you remember what I told you? ‘A slave is not greater than the master.’ Since they persecuted me, naturally they will persecute you. And if they had listened to me, they would listen to you.

Genesis 4:7 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

You will be accepted if you do what is right. But if you refuse to do what is right, then watch out! Sin is crouching at the door, eager to control you. But you must subdue it and be its master.”

(3) So we identify with our Master JESUS CHRIST, in several factors mentioned here: (a) level of persecution, (b) if people will listen to us or not, (c) determines who controls us.

C. If your master is called a demon, how much more the slave.

Matthew 9:34 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

But the Pharisees said, “He can cast out demons because he is empowered by the prince of demons.”

1. Beelzebul or other name for satan, is the prince of demons. like his master, satan, he also longs to be worshipped and called lord (Hebrew:baali) no wonder the name of the idol is baal.

Matthew 10:25 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)
