Matthew 17:24–27

Pastor Daniel Cassels

February 23, 2020

1. OTHERS ARE _____________
24 When they came to Capernaum, those who collected the
temple tax approached Peter and said, “Doesn’t your teacher
pay the temple tax?” 25 “Yes,” he said. Matthew 17:24–25a
2 When the Pharisees saw this, they said to him, “See, your
disciples are doing what is not lawful to do on the Sabbath.”
Matthew 12:2
What are you _____________ from Jesus
that is helping you _______ for Jesus?
12 Conduct yourselves honorably among the Gentiles, so that
when they slander you as evildoers, they will observe your good
works and will glorify God on the day he visits. 13 Submit to
every human authority because of the Lord, whether to the
emperor as the supreme authority 14 or to governors as those
sent out by him to punish those who do what is evil and to
praise those who do what is good. 15 For it is God’s will that you
silence the ignorance of foolish people by doing good. 16 Submit
as free people, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil,
but as God’s slaves. 17 Honor everyone. Love the brothers and
sisters. Fear God. Honor the emperor. 1 Peter 2:12–17
2. OUR _________________ IS TO GOD
When he went into the house, Jesus spoke to him first, “What
do you think, Simon? From whom do earthly kings collect tariffs
or taxes? From their sons or from strangers?” 26 “From
strangers,” he said. Matthew 17:25b–26a
19 Their end is destruction; their god is their stomach; their glory
is in their shame. They are focused on earthly things, 20 but our
citizenship is in heaven, and we eagerly wait for a Savior from
there, the Lord Jesus Christ. Philippians 3:19–20
Let everyone submit to the governing authorities, since there is
no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are
instituted by God. Romans 13:1
3. GOD SAYS TO ________________ OTHERS
“Then the sons are free,” Jesus told him. 27 “But, so we won’t
offend them, go to the sea, cast in a fishhook, and take the first
fish that you catch. When you open its mouth you’ll find a coin.
Take it and give it to them for me and you.” Matthew 17:26b–27
12 Then the disciples came up and told him, “Do you know that
the Pharisees took offense when they heard what you said?”
13 He replied, “Every plant that my heavenly Father didn’t plant
will be uprooted. 14 Leave them alone! They are blind guides.
And if the blind guide the blind, both will fall into a pit.”
Matthew 15:12–14
16 I always strive to have a clear conscience toward God and
men. Acts 24:16
23 “Everything is permissible,” but not everything is beneficial.
“Everything is permissible,” but not everything builds up. 24 No
one is to seek his own good, but the good of the other person.
1 Corinthians 10:23–24
15 …but in your hearts regard Christ the Lord as holy, ready at
any time to give a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason
for the hope that is in you. 16 Yet do this with gentleness and
respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that when you are
accused, those who disparage your good conduct in Christ will
be put to shame. 17 For it is better to suffer for doing good, if that
should be God’s will, than for doing evil. 1 Peter 3:15–17
2 Each one of us is to please his neighbor for his good, to build
him up. 3 For even Christ did not please himself. On the
contrary, as it is written, The insults of those who insult you
have fallen on me., 4 For whatever was written in the past was
written for our instruction, so that we may have hope through
endurance and through the encouragement from the Scriptures.
Romans 15:2–4
