As the first book of the New Testament, Matthew connects the past with the present and the future. It reveals the person of Jesus and his heavenly kingdom realm and teaches us how to live as citizens of that realm.
The Gospel of Matthew brings before our eyes the power and majesty of our loving King, who offers every person access to an eternal, heavenly realm free from the consequences of sin and an oasis to refresh our lives.
''Ask, and the gift is yours. Seek, and you’ll discover. Knock, and the door will be opened for you.''
