It's All about the Heart, Part II

April 5, 2020 Speaker: John Buckley Series: Follow Me: Learning to Live Like Jesus

Topic: UPCC Passage: Matthew 5:31-37

  • Downloads

We will not be meeting in the building for this service. However, you can view the virtual service online either on Facebook or YouTube.

 

Introduction

Since we began our journey on Matthew 5 we have been reflecting on the crowd Jesus was speaking to and the purpose behind some of the teachings he gives after sharing the beatitudes.  So as a quick overview before we dig into this passage let me hit the highlights.

  • Matthew 5:17-20 is a hinge passage.
  • Jesus directed his teaching to a nation that had added to God’s laws and were now manipulating others with them.
  • The point of each of the topics covered (anger, lust and nod divorce and oaths) is to give God’s purpose for and behind the law.
  • The heart is the seat of our decision making.

 

Sermon Outline

Christ’s teaching on divorce (vs. 31-32)
  • Divorce was not God’s plan (vs. 31)
  • Marriage was God’s plan (vs. 32)
Christ’s plan for oaths (vs. 33-37) 
  • Don’t make oaths thoughtlessly (vs. 33-36)
  • Let your Word be enough (vs. 37)
Questions to consider 
  • Do your actions reflect your heart?
  • Would those around you see that you cherish your spouse?
  • How do those who know you view your word?
