Key Text: Matthew 5:31-32
There is no doubt we live in a broken world; a broken world filled with broken people... and broken relationships, friendships, and marriages.
This week, we continue in our 'Sermon on the Mount' series with an extremely confronting passage. Matthew 5:31-32 attacks our 'consumer relationship' tendencies in such a way that it reveals our selfishness, and leaves us with the realisation that we need someone to rescue us from ourselves.
So as we gather together as broken people, my prayer is that you will not hear condemnation (after all, we're all lustful and adulterous people), instead, you will experience the hope that comes in spite of our brokenness.
A hope that comes in the righteousness of Jesus; a greater righteousness than ours.
