Marriage In Its Beginning (Matthew 5:31-32)Bennie Byler, July 13, 2014
Part of the Sermon On The Mount series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
|« Living With A Pure Heart In A Defiled World||None||The Truth, The Whole Truth, and Nothing but the Truth »|
Using Matthew 5:31 and 32 for the text, Bennie addressed the subject of divorce and remarriage.
In Matthew 4:17 Jesus' message was to repent. The teachings of the Sermon on the Mount are for us today.
From Genesis 2:18-24 we can see that man by himself is incomplete, so God created a help meet for him. The creation of Marriage is still for us today.
Marriage is not only an agreement between man and woman, but it is also a contract with God. Marriage is beautiful.
Love is a choice. Marriage without love is fruitless. Titus 2 teaches that older people are to teach and be good examples to the younger people.
Remember to look up and thank God for your partner.
If our homes are to bloom, we need to build on the right foundation.
31 “It was also said, ‘Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.’ 32 But I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except on the ground of sexual immorality, makes her commit adultery, and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery. (ESV)
