SUN 28-JUN-2020 - 9.30 AM Sermon
Peter Russell
Pentecost 4 – When they were setting out on their mission to preach the good news, Jesus told his followers that anyone who supported them in their mission with the smallest token of hospitality, even just a drink of water, would become an equal partner with them. No matter how insignificant someone's contribution may seem, that person will be doing God's work in the world and will receive full credit for it. But is that really how our church works? How we understand God determines how we behave toward others, and how others behave toward us. Paul suggests that when we have accepted God's hospitality and friendship, and are no longer bound by rules and laws but by love, we should be extending the hospitality to those around us. We are sent on a mission from God to bring much-needed justice and transformation to the world. With God, all things are possible.
Romans 6: 12-23; Matthew 10: 40-42
