Hypocrisy vs Intimacy Matthew 6:1-18

Study in Contrast

Study in Contrast • Matthew 5 - the commandments given through Moses vs the commands given by Jesus • Matthew 6 - the practices of the Pharisees vs practices taught by Jesus

Thesis Verse Don’t Show Off

#1 On Giving

Giving to Show Off “So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward (μισθὸν) in full.” Matthew 6:2, NIV

Give in Secret “But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward (ἀποδώσει) you.” Matthew 6:3-4, NIV

Reward

Reward μισθὸν (MISTHON, n.) = wages, pay, hire

Reward μισθὸν (MISTHON, n.) = wages, pay, hire ἀποδώσει (APODOSEI, v.) = to give, pay, render, give back, repay, fulfill

You Did It for Me “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you: • hungry and feed you • thirsty and give you something to drink • a stranger and invite you in • needing clothes and clothe you • sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’” Matthew 25:37-40, NIV

Give secretly and you’re giving to the King

#2 On Praying

Praying to Show Off “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward (μισθὸν) in full. ” Matthew 6:5, NIV

Praying in Secret “But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward (ἀποδώσει) you.” Matthew 6:6, NIV

INTIMACY

INTIMACY into-me-see Your Father wants an intimate relationship with you

Long Prayers “And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words.” Matthew 6:7, NIV

Simple Prayers “Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.” Matthew 6:8, NIV

i A Sample Prayer v Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,  your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us today our daily bread.  And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.  And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. Matthew 6:9-13, NIV

How to Pray Simply Trust that your Father knows what you need and will give you what is BEST FOR YOU

but wait! there’s more!

Forgive “For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.” Forgiving is Freedom Matthew 6:14-15, NIV

#3 On Fasting

Fasting for Show “When you fast, do not look somber as the hypocrites do, for they disfigure their faces to show others they are fasting. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward (μισθὸν) in full.” Matthew 6:16, NIV

Fast in Secret “But when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face, so that it will not be obvious to others that you are fasting, but only to your Father, who is unseen; and your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward (ἀποδώσει) you.” Matthew 6:17-18, NIV True Fasting Isaiah 58
