Divorce: Grace, Not Legalism  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 10: 2–16
Summary: When we consider Jesus’ teaching on divorce, we walk a line between respecting the authority of scripture and acknowledging the pain of a destructive relationship. Our contemporary understanding of marriage differs from the understanding in Jesus’ day. From Jesus’ other teachings, we can affirm that marriage is for people, not people for marriage. The promise of the kingdom of God offers grace, both now and in the future, for those damaged by a relationship.

The Rule to the Exception  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 10: 2–16
Summary: We are always looking for a rationale to justify why a particular rule does not apply to us in our given situation. But if moral guidelines and the ethical teachings of scripture do not work in difficult cases, then they have no value at all. In the gospel story for today, Jesus twice reminds his audience -- and us -- about the rule behind an exception, and thereby gives a valuable corrective in matters of faith and ethics.

What God Has Joined Together  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 10: 2–16
Summary: Divorce is an intensely emotional issue which often places a burden on people that they cannot easily carry. Jesus was as compassionate about those who suffered from divorce as he was about those who were hurting for other reasons. He made it clear that people “on the outside” were not to interfere with a marriage’s natural growth. On the other hand, there are some God-honoring things we can do to help the husbands and wives in our community stay together.

Why Did You Meet?  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 10: 2–16
Summary: When discussing the nature and the purpose of marriage, the meaning, the wonder and the power of marriage are often missed. When God brings a couple together it is by way of an assignment to learn and to teach love.
