The Law of Non-Retaliation

May 2, 2021 Speaker: Philip Gelston Series: Matthew

Scripture: Matthew 5:38–5:42

Sermon:   The Law of Non-Retaliation      Matt. 5:38-42

I. A Necessary Correction

 

Psalm 103:8 The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. 9  He will not always chide, nor will he keep his anger forever. 10  He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities. 11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; 12 as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us. 13 As a father shows compassion to his children, so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him. 14 For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust.

 

II. A Servant’s Heart Amidst Insult, Injury and Injustice

 

 

 

III. How God has Treated Us in Christ

 

Philippians 2:5 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, 6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.
