SERMON: Jesus on Lust

PREACHED:  09/21/14
TITLE:  Jesus on Lust
TEXT:  Matthew 5:27-30
LOCATION:  24 Church – Pleasant View, TN

SYNOPSIS:  In the portion of the Sermon on the Mount known as “the antitheses” Jesus helps us to understand the true intent of the Old Testament Law. Both in Jesus’ time and our time we are prone to follow the form of rules but to forsake the heart behind those rules. When it comes to sexual sin, Jesus says it’s not just our actions but also our thoughts that matter. These are hard words, but there is hope! We must fight lust with drastic action. And drastic action is not just a new strategy for avoiding temptation, but heart surgery. Faith in the gospel is heart surgery we need!
