Living it Out (Matthew 5:21-32)

The Lord has created human beings to be creative.  This is good because it enables us to create, to build, and to live out what it is to be in the image of God.  However, the down side of this is that we are creative in how we apply the law of God.  If we are seeking to use the law lawfully that is great, but the problem is that we can set up our own standard that is not intended in the law of God.  We might wonder why we would do such a thing, but we find that answer when Christ lays out the intention of the law.  How can we be faithful disciples when the Law of God is impossibly rigorous?
