I have been teaching on the Sermon on the mount recently. Jesus threaded the use of contrast into every point of that sermon.
Here is how you should live...opposite of how we typically live.
You have heard it said...but I tell you...
I tell you the truth..(as opposed to the lies we have believed).
Here's is the point. Christ followers need to question our beliefs/morals/values/behaviors/attitudes, and then employ biblically apposite (appropriate and relevant) and typically opposite (to how we normally live) beliefs/morals/values/behaviors/attitudes.
Are you living appositely and oppositely?
I am humbled...
