5 Matthew

Author

Kristy Espinoza

Scripture

Matthew 5:1-48

Observation

We are told how to act in different situations.

Jesus talks to us about 8 specific things. Salt and light, The fulfillment of the law, Murder, Adultery, Divorce, Oaths, An eye for an eye, Love for enemies.

Application

WOW, this passage is chucked full of so much information. I dont even want to shorten anything, I just want to copy and paste the whole passage, because it is that good!

In Matthew 5 it says that Jesus went on the mountain side and began to teach them, here are some of the things that caught my eye, I am the salt and the light, if you have the “light” of Jesus inside of you, do not cover it up, do not be ashamed of your faith! “If this causes evil against you, rejoice and be glad because great is your reward in heaven”

This is also really important, when we think of “murder” we think that someone was physically killed and will no longer breath, but here Jesus tells us that if we even call someone a fool, they will be in danger of the fire of hell. I don’t’ know about you but WOW! That is scary!! I can think of the people I get upset with who cut me off while I drive down the road. Uh oh… I am going to be rethinking how I think from now on..

Jesus goes on to talk about adultery, Jesus tells us that if we even look at another person lustfully, that we’re sinful and should gouge out our eye, Say what? WOW! That it is better to lose one part of your body, then to be thrown into the pit of hell…

Jesus goes on to tell us about our love for our enemies, I know I do not do this well, and I am praying for Jesus to help me with this.  He tell us in Matthew 5:44 “ I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.  WOW, this is really hard, but the more you do it, the easier it will get.  If you pray for your enemy, your own heart will soften for them, and this can be life changing. :)

Prayer

Dear lord,

Thank you for your sermon on the Mount. With the ever changing times of the world, your word still rings true to us. Thank you that you have given us direction to live our lives in a way that pleases you.  I know I struggle with a lot, so lord I pray that you will help me overcome my shortcomings, and grow me to be more like you.

AMEN
