Matthew 4:17Amplified Bible (AMP)17 From that time Jesus began to preach and say, “
Repent [change your inner self—your old way of thinking,
regret past sins, live your life in a way that proves repentance;
seek God’s purpose for your life], for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
2. Let not your heart be troubled—John 14:27, John 16:33, Matthew 6:25-26, Philippians 4:6-7
not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled,
nor let it be afraid. [Let My perfect peace calm you
in every circumstance and give you courage and strength for every challenge.]
3. Follow me—Matthew 4:19
accepting Me as your Master and Teacher and walking the same
path of life that I walk], and I will make you fishers of men.”

16 Let your light shine before men in such a way that
they may see your good deeds and moral excellence,
and [recognize and honor and] glorify your Father who is in heaven
Matthew 5:17-19Amplified Bible (AMP)17 “Do not think that I came to do away with or undo the [a]
Law [of Moses] or the [writings of the] Prophets;
I did not come to destroy but to fulfill.
18 For I assure you and most solemnly say to you,
until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or
stroke [of the pen] will pass from the Law until all things
[which it foreshadows] are accomplished.
19 So whoever breaks one of the least [important] of these commandments,
and teaches others to do the same, will be called least [important]
in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever practices and teaches them,
he will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
7. Be reconciled—Matthew 5:24-25
while there you remember that your brother has something
[such as a grievance or legitimate complaint] against you,
24 leave your offering there at the altar and go. First make peace
with your brother, and then come and present your offering.
25 Come to terms quickly [at the earliest opportunity] with your opponent
at law while you are with him on the way [to court], so that your opponent
does not hand you over to the judge, and the judge to the guard,
and you are thrown into prison.
