TAXES

LISTEN TO MESSAGE

Matthew 17:24-27

 

Nov. 4th 2018

 

 

 

Intro -  Nobody  I know likes to pay taxes but we are required to do so. You have probably heard the saying

 

There are only 2 things that are for certain in life, death and taxes.

 

 

 

I. Why do we pay taxes?  (24-25)

 

A. The bible has told us we should.  Luke 20:22-25, Rom.13:7, 1Tim.2:1-2

 

B.  The tax in our text today was a temple tax.

 

1.  Jews over 20 were required to pay. Ex.30:13-14

 

2.  The Levites were to collect the payment.  2Chron. 24:6   

 

 

 

II. Jesus reveals His divinity.

 

A. God is aware of your conversations whether He is physically present or not. Mt.12:36

 

1. Jesus knows everything because He is God. Jn.16:30, Lk.12:2, 5

 

2. He even knows your thoughts and intentions.  Heb.4:12

 

B. If the tax was for God’s temple then God does not have to pay the tax.  (26)

 

C. He shows His power over creation proving His divinity.

 

1. He determines which fish.

 

2. He determines amount of money. Enough for Him and Peter. Jn.21:17

 

 

 

III. We should try and not offend. (27)   2Cor.6:3

 

A. That doesn’t mean compromising the truth. Matt.10:34-36, Mt.15:7-14, 1Pet.2:7-8

 

B. Don’t cause others to stumble over issues that don’t determine eternity. Mt.18:6, 1Cor.8:8, 12
