TODAY'S COMMAND TO OBEY:
Today, we're looking at the command of Jesus in Matthew 5:28-30, where Jesus says, "But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell."(NIV)
Wow. I'll admit it, this is a tough command. How can a Christian truly keep this command? Watch the video to learn how.
Reach out to your discipleship mentor!
Reach out: Take 60 seconds & text your mentor about what you’re learning. Ask for prayer, share next actions, or share how Jesus is transforming you. I’ll be honest... It might be hard to “keep it real” on this command. But do it... it’s worth it!
