Summer on the Mount: Adultery and Divorce Redefined

The scripture passage for this sermon is Matthew 5:27-32 in which Jesus addresses issues of the heart concerning marriage, lust and divorce. Pastor Nate explains the covenant design of marriage as it differs from the consumer relationship of marriage. We learn how the consuming desire of lust becomes a form of idolatry that requires "drastic spiritual surgery." Jesus speaks to the concession of divorce in this passage, and we are reminded that marriage was originally intended to be a lifelong, covenantal relationship (Matthew 19:6). The topics of permissible divorce, remarriage and abuse are also addressed.

In this most famous sermon of all time, we will learn what life looks like when lived according to the Kingdom of Jesus Christ. We will also learn just how just how revolutionary Jesus' teaching was and still is in our culture today. Jesus sets a high bar when it comes to topics like judging others, lust, marriage, false religion, money and how we treat others. While we will never live up to the holy standards set forth in this sermon, Jesus practiced what He preached, fulfilling these standards in our place. Jesus now calls us to live as members of His kingdom so that the world sees Him.
