Matthew was a man who was enchanted by the world’s vision for his life. Money, power and sex lulled him deeper into worldliness but when he met Jesus, everything changed. (Luke 5:27, 28). Once “Levi, the tax collector”, now “Matthew, Jesus’ disciple.” Matthew became enthralled by a new, heavenly vision given to him. He saw Jesus as King: King of the Jews and King of the world that Matthew thought worldly lusts ruled. Matthew saw Jesus reigning perfectly with God the Father and with the Holy Spirit. In Matthew’s gospel, we are drawn into the disciples’ journeys with Jesus. As Jesus enters into his public ministry, we read his sermons, his miracles, stories of his compassion, and even taken into his private prayers with the Father. We will see the story of Jesus the King intensify as he is put on trial, condemned to death on a cross, and buried in a tomb. Three days after his death, He miraculously rises from the grave and gives his disciples and followers a commission: to engage with the lost world by sharing the good news that Jesus saves sinners.
