Whole-Person Righteousness & Adultery

Matthew 5:27-30

As people pursuing whole-person righteousness, we seek to rid ourselves of all lustful intentions and desires, and to fight against sexual immorality in our lives.

“Jesus is a teacher who doesn’t just inform our intellect but forms our very loves. He isn’t content to simply deposit new ideas into your mind; he is after nothing less than your wants, your loves, your longings.” -James K.A. Smith
