Darryl continues our series in the Jesus' Sermon on the Mount, preaching from Matthew 5:27-30. In this passage Jesus tells his hearers the meaning and intent of God's law against adultery. Jesus exposes the root cause of adultery and challenges us to take radical action in our repentance and belief in him.
Matthew 5:27 - 5:30
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.
