Pilgrim Uniting Church, Adelaide SA
SUN 18-AUG-2019 - 9.30 AM Sermon
Rev Vikki Waller
Pentecost 10 – “The way to peace” – The Jesus way of peace is seriously committed to love and compassion, with no place for retaliation and retribution. But Jesus warns that there is a price to Christian discipleship, because of its radically different standards from those of the 'world'. Those who work together with Jesus can find themselves confronted by divided families, hostility, ridicule and abuse. The text from Hebrews likens the struggle to a marathon race – after all the discomfort, pain and derision, you cross the finishing line to the applause of such a crowd of spectators, that it's all worthwhile. – Peace!
Luke 12: 49-56; Hebrews 12: 1-2
