What do we need to gouge out of our lives?

This week we take a look at one of the more difficult teachings of Christ where He taught us to gouge out our eye if it causes us to sin.  They are hard words to hear but in context Jesus was intentionally trying to shock His audience.  The point that He was trying to get at was that sin was so serious that anything that caused us to sin was worth getting out of our lives.  Why?  Because Hell is a place that you don’t want to go and sin buys us a one way ticket there.  Of course as Christians we believe in the grace and forgiveness that is afforded to us through Jesus, yet we still understand that sin has its consequences and that sin can still hold us back from becoming like Christ.  And so it is important for us to evaluate our actions in light of the fact that we simply do not want to entertain sin.  We should consider that if Jesus took sin seriously that we should take it seriously too.

In this Sermon

We are going to look at what Jesus taught about sin and the two things that He confronts in this passage.
