Deuteronomy

08.04.19 - "You Shall Not Commit Adultery"

Content Advisory: There’s nothing lewd or inappropriate in this sermon, but we do talk about sex, so use caution when listening with little ones.

The Seventh Commandment summarizes all of God’s commands about marriage and sexuality. We often focus on ‘how far is too far’ and miss God’s intention for sex. God’s purpose for humanity is that we be a people who live in relationship with him, and being fruitful and multiplying is central to this vision. The seventh commandment condemns those who deviate from this vision by separating marriage from sex and childbearing.

07.07.19 - "Hear, O Israel" (Part 2)

When Jesus calls disciples to follow him, he calls them to pick up their cross - an ancient instrument of torture - every day. Following Jesus is a whole-life commitment. That’s why we are commanded to love (or be loyal to) God with all of our ‘very muchness’. And when we truly understand who God is and what he’s done for us, devoting our lives to him will be the natural response.
