“ANOTHER PLACE” -MATTHEW 8:5-12 11-11-18

IS YOUR LIFE GOOD OR BAD?

THERE’S A CASE TO BE MADE THAT IT’S GOOD!

“WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD!”

THERE’S A CASE TO BE MADE THAT IT’S BAD!

“IT’S A HARD KNOCK LIFE!”

MATTHEW 8 PUTS IT IN PERSPECTIVE, WITH JESUS LEADING THE DISCUSSION.

THIS IS A PLACE OF SALVATION – 8:5.

THIS IS A PLACE OF SEARCHING – 8:5.

THIS IS A PLACE OF SICKNESS – 8:6.

THIS IS A PLACE OF SELECTIONS – 8:7-9.

THIS PLACE WILL GIVE PLACE TO ANOTHER PLACE.

THERE IS A BETTER PLACE:  HEAVEN!  8:10-11

THE TICKET IS FAITH IN CHRIST.

THE TITLE IS THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.

THERE IS A WORSE PLACE:  HELL!  8:12

THE TITLE, “OUTER DARKNESS”, EMPHASIZES ALIENATION.

THE TORMENT, “WEEPING AND GNASHING OF TEETH” EMPHASIZES AGONY.

“IF YOU’RE SAVED, THIS IS THE WORST YOU’LL EVER HAVE IT.                                    IF YOU’RE UNSAVED, THIS IS THE BEST YOU’LL EVER HAVE IT!”
