February 6, 2014; Salt, Light and Heat
Question: Have you ever fasted? With what result?
"Shout out like a trumpet" -paraphrase
from the Living Bible: Treat your workers well. Much more immediate than "oppressed"
Helping others is what the Scripture calls for
Difficulty of giving without strings
We, as human beings, want accountability.
Isaiah says: "Do Justice" which implies our action, not theirs, is what matters.
1 Corinthians 2:1-12
"I decided to know nothing...except Jesus Christ, and him crucified."
We don't understand what God is doing (and we don't) that's where faith comes in.
Salt of the World, Light of the World, not change the Law
Obvious connection to the Isaiah reading.
Better than the Pharisees--a huge burden!
"Don't hide your light"
Larger question: "What do we offer for meaningful volunteer work that appeals to a younger generation? Rather than 'making' them get involved with something that doesn't appeal, what does appeal?"
Sermon Title: Salt, Light, and Heat
1 Corinthians 3:1-9
Have a great week! PD
