Rev Dr Greg Elsdon
Pentecost 22 – "Gospel, power and authenticity" – Jesus was highly critical of those in authority who imposed burdens on others with no intention of sharing in the burdens, whose decrees incarcerated rather than liberated, and who indulged in ostentatious displays of their high position and standing. We must use power not to coerce, but to liberate and bring healing to others. It shows our hypocrisy and lack of authenticity, if we preach the words of the gospel without practising what we preach.
1 Thessalonians 2: 9-13; Matthew 23: 1-12
