We’re sitting at Jesus’ feet listening to the greatest sermon ever preached: the Sermon on the Mount.

Today, we come to what a theologian named John Stott called the “highest point of the Sermon on the Mount.” I love how he describes it:

It is both most admired and most resented, namely the attitude of total love which Christ calls us to show towards one who is evil and our enemies. Nowhere is the challenge of the Sermon greater. Nowhere is the distinctness of the Christian counter-culture more obvious. Nowhere is our need of the power of the Holy Spirit (whose first fruit is love) more compelling.

Pray through these words with all your :

We’re sitting at Jesus’ feet, listening to the greatest sermon ever preached: the Sermon on the Mount.

How serious is God about sin? Here’s what Jesus said.

You have heard that it was said, “Do not commit adultery.” But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. And if  your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go to hell.

It has been said, “Anyone who divorces his wife must give her a certificate of divorce.” But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, makes her the victim of adultery, and anyone who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.

(Matthew 5:27-30)

The message couldn’t be clearer: stop sin at its source. Now.
