    The Final Word on Commitment

    Let Your Yes Be YesChrist now brings us to the topic of COMMITMENT. He is giving us the final word on commitment. We know that God DOES NOT MAKE MISTAKES. In fact, everything that God says and does is with a purpose and is purposefully ordered. Thus, Christ moves from adultery is a sin to divorce is wrong and now to oaths/covenants are serious business. I must think then as I study this that Christ still has in mind the marriage vow.

    You see each marriage is a sacred commitment before God and to each other. The day that a husband and a wife say “I do” is the day they make a sacred oath to God. Family and friends attend. As they attend, they become witnesses to one of the most important vows a person can make. Unfortunately, that vow is very little meaning today. People get married just for the thrill of the ceremony. They say the vows, but in the deep recesses of their mind, they know that society has made it easy for them to break that vow. This goes back to the message on divorce. Remember divorce was happening in Christ’s day for all kinds of frivolous reasons. So, it is today as well. But, as we are going to see this morning, any vow, and may I add especially the vow of holy matrimony, that a person makes to God is an extremely serious matter with God.
     
    Let’s see what Christ said about making oaths or covenants to Him.
     
    He reaffirms what was already stated in the Law.

    Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths: Matthew 5:33

    We find five key passages in the Law of Moses related to God’s commandment concerning oaths. Exodus 20:7 which says…

    dANGER! Anger is Dangerous – Part 2

    Danger_Anger is DangerousdANGER! Anger is Dangerous

    Danger! Anger is dangerous. This is the second part of a two-part message on anger. 
    Anger is a dangerous emotion that many of us often experience. How many of you have heard the phrase “He’s so mad he can’t see straight?” How many of you (without a show of hands) can relate and have been there before?  In our continuing study of Christ’s great message, the Sermon the Mount, we find Christ dealing with interpersonal relationships. We know that Christ later when confronted by the young lawyer laid out the entirety of the law with two simple statements. THE FIRST is Love the Lord thy God with all the heart, soul, and mind. It is the first commandment covering the first 10 commandments God gave to Moses. THE SECOND is Love Thy Neighbor as Thyself which covers the rest of the commandments. Scripture teaches us that there are two basic relationships. A VERTICAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD which is the most important relationship. THERE IS ALSO A HORIZONTAL RELATIONSHIP WITH OTHER PEOPLE. Always, in Scripture, the vertical relationship comes first then the other. We must be right with God before we can be right with others. Christ in this great sermon has dealt with the vertical. He has explained what it means to be a true follower or disciple of His. You find this in the Beatitudes. Then, He gives instruction concerning our purpose in life. We are to be Salt and Light to the world. Now, He begins to teach us about living life with others and how to handle some important emotions. The top of the list is ANGER. You see anger is danger! Anger is an emotion given to us by God. Anger does not necessarily need to be sinful. Often, we see in the Bible that God was angry with the children of Israel and others. Christ Himself demonstrated anger when He saw the moneychangers in the Temple. In each case, God’s anger was never sinful but was directed towards sinful things.
