The Way of the Kingdom
God designed marriage as a sacred union that was to be broken only in the rarest of circumstances. Due to sin's entry into our world, however, that stable, lasting form of unity has seldom been the norm. In the Old Testament, we saw Moses mandate certificates of divorce be issued to a woman whose husband found fault with her, allowing for remarriage. During Jesus' teaching, however, he clarified that divorce should only occur when sexual immorality has taken place... and that those who remarry after a divorce was conducted for any other reason are committing adultery.
Are we treating our marriages the way Jesus commanded today, in an age where divorce is often viewed as "normal?" Or, as in the age of Moses, are we breaking God's sacred unions for many reasons that exceed the parameters outlined by Jesus? In this week's sermon, we hear about the importance of recognizing God's intentions for lasting marriages, seeking reconciliation in our relationships, and repenting when we find ourselves living outwardly holy lives, yet also living with sinful hearts.
