Matthew 5:33 - 37 - "I promise!" "I swear!" How many promises like that have we broken? Broken promises to others; broken promises to God ... Yet, Jesus' challenge to anyone who would choose to follow Him is that our simple "yes" or "no" be enough. That we would be known as a people of integrity. What would it take for us to revolutionize our words?
The Gospel of Matthew contains some of the most revolutionary words of Jesus ever recorded. It's known as The Sermon On The Mount. Never before had anyone heard teaching with such authority. Jesus gave such a compelling vision for what it really meant to live for God that it turned conventional thinking upside down. Not only that, but when we live according to theses teachings, we too will be revolutionary for Him today.
