Upside Down Kingdom – Week 3

July 18, 2021

Matthew 5

27“You have heard that it was said, ‘YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT ADULTERY’; 28but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

The top of the iceberg is WHAT YOU SEE…JESUS WANTS TO GET UNDERNEATH – core of HUMANITY

Proverbs 4:23 – Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.

Matthew 15:19 – For out of the heart come evil thoughts – murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander

What JESUS IS NOT TEACHING

What IS JESUS SAYING?

Matthew 5:27 (ESV)

            But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

LOOK – to hold on

LUST IS A DESIRE TO POSSES – To DOMINATE

AN unhealthy heart turns love into lust and human beings into objects for gratification

—————————————————————————–

The Problem:

           We use what God intends us to love and we love what God designed to be used.

What do we do? THE FIGHT FOR OUR HEART

  • Admit our own brokenness
  • Flee sexual immorality
  • Cultivate healthy intimacy
  • Feed on divine love

The person who walks in the MOST FREEDOM is the person who has THE MOST CONFIDENCE that they are LOVED.
