On 6/1/08 we looked at the difficult and complex issue of divorce and remarriage, and what Jesus has to say about it in Matthew 5:31-32, as we continued through the Sermon on the Mount at Grace Evangelical Free Church in Indianola.

Also looked at Jesus debate with the Pharisees on this issue in Matthew 19:3-9, the original Mosaic provision in Deuteronomy 24:1-4, and Paul’s teaching in 1 Corinthians 7:10-16.

Christians who live by Kingdom norms (Matthew 5:7-12) will have influence.  Jesus in Matthew 5:13-16, using two metaphors, lays out the type of witness that His followers are to have in the world – we are the Salt of the earth and we are to be the light of the world.

To neglect doing this makes us useless for His Kingdom purposes.
