Topic: UPCC Passage: Matthew 5:31-37

  • Downloads

Listen to sermon here.



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?
