Through my prayer, preparation and study for this Sunday’s message, “Modern Sex and the Challenges Our Kids Face”, God has led me to preach on this passage:
27 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Do not commit adultery.’ 28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.” Matthew 5:27-30
My sermon was going to be an “Urgent Message for Parents”. Now, It is an “Urgent Message for EVERYONE”! If you do not want to be convicted by God’s word, or you do NOT want to deal ruthlessly with sin in your life and in your family, then this would be a good Sunday to skip church. You might want to sleep in, go shopping, go to the lake, or go out of town or something.
How’s that for marketing the church? Let’s quit playing games and get serious about our relationship with Jesus Christ. And bring your Bibles to church!
