Church What implications does Matthew 5:27-30 have for us as a church community? • The church is called to radically committed to both: rooting sexual sin from our midst and caring for and restoring the repentant sinner. Have you ever seen the church (Redeemer or another church) balance these two well? How were they able to do this well? Or, how did they fail to do this well? City How does this passage speak to our city? • On any day this week, try to make a quick note in your phone, or on a piece of paper, of all the instances you see images (in the city, on TV or online, etc.) that tempt you to lust? What surprises you about the number and nature of the images that you notice? How has being observant to the way images are used to tempt us to sin impacted you?
