Matthew 5:38-42

In these verses we come to perhaps the most difficult part of the Sermon on the Mount - a section of the sermon that is often turned to first, before any other. Here we find Jesus speaking these arresting words - "But I tell you, do not resist an evil person." How are we to understand these words of Christ? What will it look like for us to take this teaching seriously and faithfully? In this message we explore this text in detail and discover again the gospelized life requires a profound change at the core of our being. In fact, life as a follower of Christ requires that we die to self.
