Sermon on the Mount
Divorce. One of the most skipped topics on the Sermon on the Mount. Today we talk about divorce and what God and His Word says about it. For most, it may be hard to hear but God's Word is straight to the point. However, there is a way to discuss this topic that both glorifies God's Word, as well as brings relief to those un sure about it. Listen up!

The Demands of Christ
Chris Brewster • The Well Church OKC • Sermon • • 201 views • 1:05:38
As people, it is apparent that we are remarkably bad at choosing people for the best reasons. We are predictably drawn to what we see, to the outward appearance. This is often the natural inception of our understanding of others, and this is not always a bad thing. However, we have to move to a much more accurate assessment of someone by viewing who they are in the inside. When we miss this, we end up with all kinds of trouble. We elect, hire, marry, reward attractive people, or people who perform well, but miss the much more important beauty of so many who may not have the appearance of others. In the same way, we have learned to have the outside of our cups clean and decorated in specific ways in order to be accepted.
The Gospel of Luke
Jesus tells us a new age has dawned - but what's new about it? The king hasn't changed and neither has his good design for his Kingdom as Jesus shows us by highlighting the continuity of the Law. It is a new age of grace: those who live outside of God's design are urged to come into his kingdom, under his good rule, and recieve his boundless grace. A longer talk than ususal because we address the difficult and sensitive subject of divorce.
