Sermon; Maundy Thursday: "By Our Love; By Our Love"
Date: April 18, 2019
Liturgical Day: Maundy Thursday; Year C
There is a darkness to these three days of worship, as we walk with Jesus through his suffering and death. There is also a deep challenge to us this evening, as we hear his call for us to live in a way that demonstrates the same love he shows to us. Jesus commands us to love. He demands that our love resemble his. And he declares that our love will become a witness to the world of what stands at the center of our lives. As we live into our desire to love both God and neighbor, may they say of us what was once said of the Christian Church: “See how they love one another!”
