Tony Evans (March-07-2021) Watch Sermon: Reversing Sexual Consequences. It’s a taboo subject in many churches. Yet, as Tony Evans reminds us, sexual immorality is as prevalent today as it was in the days of the early church. He also reminds us that Jesus has removed the condemnation of sexual sin from us to inspire us to “go and sin no more.”

Tony Evans (February-17-2021) Watch Message: Lessons From the Book of Leviticus. 

Leviticus is one of the most neglected and yet powerful books in the Bible. It establishes the guidelines by which God is to be known and worshiped. It is far more relevant to us than many realize.

The book distinguishes between the profane, the common, and the holy. Here’s an illustration that may help to explain the differences between those concepts. When you have dirty dishes in your sink, they are profane. That is, they are unacceptable to use until they have been cleaned. Profane things in our lives are completely unacceptable to God because they bring dirt before him. The common dishes, by contrast, are those you use every day. There’s nothing wrong with them; they just aren’t special. And should we treat God as common, we don’t hold him in the high regard his holiness deserves and demands.

Think about what’s holy in relation to the china dishes secured behind the glass doors in the hutch in the dining room. These are the ones we only bring out on special occasions for honored guests. That picture gives insight into how Leviticus teaches us to treat God—the Holy One who is like no other. We are to relate to God and worship him as our unique, one-of-a-kind Lord, and King of his kingdom. He deserves only the best.

Tony Evans (January-07-2021) Watch Message: Lessons From the Book of Matthew

Matthew was a tax collector, which means he was unpopular. He left everything to follow Jesus after he concluded that Jesus was
the Messiah. Matthew was authorized to write the Gospel that bears his name, and its subject is very simple: it’s about the King and his kingdom. Matthew was introducing, especially to Jews, the message that God has
sent his King, his Messiah, who would rule as his regent on earth by offering the kingdom to his people. In this sense Matthew is the
culmination of all the Old Testament’s anticipation of the Messiah who would come.
The apostle’s concern was giving convincing proof that Jesus was the messianic King whom the Jews were anticipating and whom the world needs so desperately. That’s why he began with Jesus’s genealogy to establish his lineage through David. Matthew also presented Jesus’s kingdom discourses, teaching, and miracles as proof of his messianic
claim.
The book winds to a disquieting moment, the crucifixion. If Jesus is the Messiah, how could he be put to death? Thankfully, the scene is followed by the resurrection and the announcement that the King is alive and coming back, and that his kingdom is in this world today. Jesus’s Great Commission at the end of Matthew’s Gospel (28:18-20) means that the book of Matthew is relevant for us as believers today.

Why God Wants to Amaze You - Tony Evans, podcast (December-17-2020)

Lessons From the Book of Genesis - Tony Evans (December-16-2020). Genesis is the book of beginnings. It is critical because it sets the stage for the rest of Scripture. The best way to understand Genesis is through its personalities, beginning with the first couple: Adam and Eve. God gave his dominion covenant to humankind, to rule on his behalf on earth as a reflection of his dominion over all. This set the stage for the fall, when Adam and Eve sinned against God, bringing earth under the temporary control of Satan. But the episode recording the entrance of sin is also embedded with the prophecy of a Redeemer—Jesus Christ—who will defeat Satan and restore God’s kingdom rule over all. In the meantime Genesis records the angelic conflict now being waged on earth to such an extent that God destroyed the earth with a flood and began again with Noah to establish his kingdom rule—for Genesis introduces us to a kingdom concept. The world after the flood also rebelled against God at Babylon, and God judged the people for trying to establish unity without him. Then God called one man, Abraham, through whom he would reestablish his kingdom regime. Beginning with chapter 12, Genesis traces the history of Abraham and his family as God lays the foundation of his kingdom through the nation of Israel.
