Matthew 5:38-42
Title: Eyes, Cheeks, Doormats & Anvils
Passage: Matthew 5:38-42
Series: Sermon on the Mount: The Way of Jesus
Speaker: Pastor Jason

Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount is filled with hard words, but his teachings in Matthew 5:38-42 are among the most needed- and most resisted- for the North American church today. In a individualistic country that holds up personal rights and freedoms as among the highest of virtues, Jesus’s words here are difficult for culture and Christians alike. But when we think about these words of Jesus in light of the example of Jesus, we cannot escape how much that understanding eyes, cheeks, doormats and anvils is central to the gospel.
