Matthew: The Life and Words of Jesus, Part 13
Don’t Break Your Marriage or Your Word
Speaker: Joshua Harris
Text: Matthew 5:31-37
In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus confronted people who seemed to be following the rules, but, in their hearts, didn't truly love and honor God. People in God's kingdom should not be looking for loopholes that allow them to get their own way. Instead, Jesus calls us to honor marriage and be a truth-teller, even as we recognize the futility of earning our own righteousness through rule-keeping.
