You Have Heard It Said... On Adultery, Divorce and Oaths (Matthew 5:27-37)

Tim & Lisa Henton, February 26, 2017
Part of the The Kingdom Of Heaven series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

In this message Pastors Lisa and Tim talk about the effect Jesus has on our hearts when we invited him to come into places where we are dealing with things like lust. And how he can bring life to areas that are broken and seem hopeless when we invite him into those places. They share their personal story of what Jesus has done in their lives in these areas.

Matthew 5:27-37

27 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ 28 But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body go into hell.

31 “It was also said, ‘Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.’ 32 But I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except on the ground of sexual immorality, makes her commit adultery, and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.

33 “Again you have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform to the Lord what you have sworn.’ 34 But I say to you, Do not take an oath at all, either by heaven, for it is the throne of God, 35 or by the earth, for it is his footstool, or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. 36 And do not take an oath by your head, for you cannot make one hair white or black. 37 Let what you say be simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything more than this comes from evil.
