Are You 
A Spiritual 
Discerner? 
Sermon on the Mount 
(Matthew 7:1-23) 
November 16, 2014
How to Judge and How Not 
to Judge (Matthew 7:1-6) 
 1 “Judge not, that you be not judged. 2 For with 
the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and 
with the measure you use it will be measured to you. 
3 Why do you see the speck that is in your 
brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your 
own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let 
me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the 
log in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the log 
out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to 
take the speck out of your brother’s eye. 
6 “Do not give dogs what is holy, and do not 
throw your pearls before pigs, lest they trample them 
underfoot and turn to attack you.
Pray, Pursue, & Produce 
(Matthew 7:7-12) 
 7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you 
will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 For 
everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks 
finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. 9 
Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will 
give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give 
him a serpent? 11 If you then, who are evil, know how 
to give good gifts to your children, how much more 
will your father who is in heaven give good things to 
those who ask him! 
12 “So whatever you wish that others would do to 
you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the 
Prophets.
Which Way Are You Going? 
(Matthew 7:13-14) 
 13 “Enter by the narrow gate. 
For the gate is wide and the way 
is easy that leads to destruction, 
and those who enter by it are 
many. 14 For the gate is narrow 
and the way is hard that leads to 
life, and those who find it are few.
Beware of False Prophets 
& False Disciples 
(Matthew 7:15-23) 
 15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s 
clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16 You will recognize 
them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or 
figs from thistles? 17 So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but 
the diseased tree bears bad fruit. 18 A healthy tree cannot bear 
bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree 
that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the 
fire. 20 Thus you will recognize them by their fruits. 
21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter 
the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my 
Father who is in heaven. 22 On that day many will say to me, 
‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out 
demons in your name, and do mighty works in your name?’ 23 
And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from 
me, you workers of lawlessness.’
How to Judge and How Not 
to Judge (Matthew 7:1-6) 
 1 “Judge not, that you be not judged. 2 For with 
the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and 
with the measure you use it will be measured to you. 
3 Why do you see the speck that is in your 
brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your 
own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let 
me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the 
log in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the log 
out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to 
take the speck out of your brother’s eye. 
6 “Do not give dogs what is holy, and do not 
throw your pearls before pigs, lest they trample them 
underfoot and turn to attack you.

and the way is hard that leads to 
life, and those who find it are few.
Which Way Are You Going? 
(Matthew 7:13-14) 
 3. Spiritual discerners 
trust in Jesus Christ, 
the Narrow Gate, as 
their Lord and Savior.
Beware of False Prophets 
& False Disciples 
(Matthew 7:15-23) 
 15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s 
clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16 You will recognize 
them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or 
figs from thistles? 17 So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but

demons in your name, and do mighty works in your name?’ 23 
And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from 
me, you workers of lawlessness.’
Beware of False Prophets 
& False Disciples 
(Matthew 7:15-23) 
 4. Spiritual discerners 
know the Truth and live 
out the truths of 
Scripture. Be spiritually 
discerning!
Are You A 
Spiritual Discerner? 
 1. Spiritual discerners aren’t judgmental; they 
judge righteously. 
 2. Spiritual discerners pray persistently, pursue 
His plan, and produce for His pleasure. 
 3. Spiritual discerners trust in Jesus Christ, the 
Narrow Gate, as their Lord and Savior. 
 4. Spiritual discerners know the Truth and live out 
the truths of Scripture. Be spiritually discerning!
1 Corinthians 2:14-16 
 The natural person does not accept 
the things of the Spirit of God, for they 
are folly to him, and he is not able to 
understand them because they are 
spiritually discerned. The spiritual 
person judges all things, but is himself 
to be judged by no one. “For who has 
understood the mind of the Lord so as 
to instruct him?” But we have the 
mind of Christ.

Are You a Spiritual Discerner? (Matthew 7:1-23)

  • 1. Are You A Spiritual Discerner? Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 7:1-23) November 16, 2014
  • 2. How to Judge and How Not to Judge (Matthew 7:1-6)  1 “Judge not, that you be not judged. 2 For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. 3 Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye. 6 “Do not give dogs what is holy, and do not throw your pearls before pigs, lest they trample them underfoot and turn to attack you.
  • 3. Pray, Pursue, & Produce (Matthew 7:7-12)  7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. 9 Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? 11 If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him! 12 “So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.
  • 4. Which Way Are You Going? (Matthew 7:13-14)  13 “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. 14 For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.
  • 5. Beware of False Prophets & False Disciples (Matthew 7:15-23)  15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16 You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? 17 So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. 18 A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus you will recognize them by their fruits. 21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do mighty works in your name?’ 23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’

  • 15. 1 Corinthians 2:14-16  The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned. The spiritual person judges all things, but is himself to be judged by no one. “For who has understood the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ.
