Passage: Matthew 5:31-32, 19:3-9

Jesus' entrance as the long-awaited Messiah-King establishing his rule and reign completely turns the world upside down. In his sermon on the mount, Jesus gives his manifesto for what life is like in his kingdom. This often means that Jesus gets into our business a bit to talk about the things we don't want to. This was the case last week with sexual desire and it's the same this week with marriage and divorce. It can seem, at first, like Jesus is overly stiff, but when we dig a little deeper and examine the bigger story behind what he's saying, we might just discover God's heart behind marriage and his ultimate plan to redeem divorce.
