Preaching an Awe-fully Mysterious and Wondrous God
As long as our illusions of control over storms and germs persist to govern our thinking, we will never be able to take the saving work of Christ as seriously we ought.
Gospel: Matthew 21:23-27 (28-32) (Pentecost 17: Series A)
Jesus invites us to practice a faith that is bold. He invites us to trust in Him, without calculations.
Epistle: Philippians 2:1-4 (5-13) 14-18 (Pentecost 17: Series A)
Throughout the Gospels there is no quality more closely identified by Jesus with the life of His people than humility which echoes His own.
Old Testament: Ezekiel 18:1-4, 25-32 (Pentecost 17: Series A)
God desires that all men might be saved. The problem, the stumbling block, does not lie with God. The problem is one of man’s heart and spirit.
