Life in this new society that Jesus is describing is not void of passion. It is not a bland, emotionless existence. Quite the contrary. Life in the Kingdom is a life of passion, including sexual passion. But it is not unbounded, self-serving passion that seeks personal pleasure at the expense of others. It is a pure passion. It is passion within the context of a covenantal relationship. The misuse of sex ultimately wrecks us. It wrecks us emotionally, relationally and spiritually. And so Jesus, without any qualifications, calls us to the kind of pure passion that is only possible to achieve as we live our lives in Him.
