Sermon; The 7th Sunday after the Epiphany: "Kingdom Life"
Date: February 24, 2019
Liturgical Day: The Seventh Sunday after the Epiphany; Year C
Gathered together with his twelve apostles, a great crowd of disciples and a multitude of people from all around the country, Jesus lays out for them what life in the kingdom of God looks like. He is not talking about a home in the sky, by-and-by. He is talking about day-to-day living that is marked by love, blessing, generosity, mercy and forgiveness. Martin Luther spoke about the kingdom of God which “breaks into” our lives. This happens when our hearts are touched by the gifts of God, and we respond by sharing those gifts with others.
