Daily Bible Reading Notes – Matthew 3:1-12

by Mike Sanders

MikeSandersAccountability, Repentance, Fruit

The crowds felt the tension of John’s kingdom preaching. The coming accountability prompted action (Matt 3:5-6). Their repentance was genuine and evident by their immersion and confession (full agreement) of sin.

Religious leaders, many of them, felt the tension, too (3:7). Their response, however, was surface only (5:20; 23:27). John challenged them to present fruit to validate/harmonize with their repentance (3:8). Real repentance is the real remedy to the real “wrath to come.”

    Years ago Dr. Stephen Olford explained the original three-point sermon. It had to do with: 1) the mind 2) the heart and 3) the will.

    Your comments brought back some memories.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
