Sermon on the Mount: Part 4 – February 19, 2023

“Sermon on the Mount: Part 4”
Matthew 5:27-37
As we continue our study of the Sermon on the Mount, we focus on Jesus’s comments on marriage, fidelity, and taking oaths. It is easy to view this passage as Jesus introducing a new form of legalism. While this is not the case, Jesus is absolutely serious about the importance of being faithful. No matter how emphatic we might say an oath or make a promise, the most important thing is living our lives in a way that constantly affirms the relationships of which we are a part, including our relationship with God.
