6/8- "God Hates Hate & Loves Love"- Matthew 5:21-26

Click here to listen to this sermon

This sermon in our series on the Sermon On the Mount covers the depth to which God's Law confronts our sin. We will learn that God sees not only the external sinful actions we commit, like murder, as a breaking of his holy Law, but the internal motives and thoughts of our hearts that may never be externalized, like hate or bitterness or envy. We must not continue in these sinful attitudes, but reconcile with our enemies or we can never claim God's reconciliation over our lives in the gospel. Believing the gospel is evident in reconciled relationships and the presence of unconfessed hostility towards others calls to question our belief in the amazing grace given us in Christ.
