LATEST SERMON

The Only Life that is Real

September 25, 2022 

 

We continue with First Timothy this week, a letter writer to Timothy who is described as a true child in the faith. The lectionary reading from chapter six warns us against the love of money. Scripture says that “The love of money is the root of all evil. Some people, in their passion for it, have strayed from the faith and have come to grief amid great pain.” The letter writer instead instructs Timothy to run the great race of faith. And to run the great race of faith one must be dedicated to God, strive to be a person of integrity and piety, and filled with love, patience and gentleness. The text ends with these final instructions “They are to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with all that we need for our enjoyment. Tell them they are to do good and be wealthy in good works. They are to be generous and willing to share. In this way, they’ll create a treasure for the future, and guarantee the only life that is real.”

Our life journey, our story, is the story of how we are seeking the only life that is real. And as we gather as one body, looking for belonging in the body of Christ, we should strive to be wealthy in good works and in generosity. We should have integrity and be filled with love, patience and gentleness. Those are the things that matter, those are the things that are real. What size houses we live in, how much money we have, how popular we are, what our Facebook status is, does not bring us joy. How many people gather on Sunday morning doesn’t matter if what we are doing as a gathered body doesn’t include generosity, love, patience, gentleness and good works. If we embody those things and only a handful of people are here, that is real.


LAST WEEK'S SERMON

To Self Assess

 

This week we are Chapter 13 of Brené Brown’s book Atlas of the Heart titled Places We Go to Self-Assess. This chapter covers pride, hubris and humility. This morning I want to talk about all three: pride, hubris and humility.
