Jesus said, "You have heard that it was said to those of old 'You shall not commit adultery.' But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. ... Furthermore it has been said, 'Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.' But I say to you that whoever divorces his wife for any reason except sexual immorality causes her to commit adultery; and whoever marries a woman who is divorced commits adultery." (Matthew 5:27-32). We are surrounded by a culture obsessed with impurity. As Christians, how are we to live with godly sexuality and walk in victory, triumph, and purity in every area of our lives? In this study of Matthew 5:27-32, Dr. Stephen Manley discusses Godly sexuality, morality, and marriage. As he says, "I come to this passage with fear and trembling. My heart has no condemnation or judgment toward anyone joining me in the study. Jesus' grace is sufficient for all, despite our past or marital status. The depth of God's grace is astounding. We all stand guilty in the truth of this passage. All men and women have lusted and been unfaithful in their heart's response if not in their physical action. Although we admit that everyone is guilty of lust in the heart, we must never make light of it. The purpose of acknowledging our guilt is a simple reality; only by the power of Jesus are we able maintain sexual purity." For anyone looking to gain a biblical understanding of practical Christian living in the area of purity, romance, morality, and marriage, this study will encourage and press you into Jesus Christ.
