Sermon 12 Aug 2018

Why did you say that, Jesus? by Fr. Dana

Simple Summary: Jesus attracts a following with sweet and kind words, but then He says something hard that turns many away.  Labour for food that does not perish: for soul sustenance, not body sustenance.  Jesus is the true bread of heaven – and that is too much for some.  But Jesus is committed to the Father, not to having a huge following.

  • Jesus feeds those who are hungry, not those who are satisfied
  • Jesus is building His Church, not a social club
  • Jesus requires committed people, not talented people
  • Only committed people can carry the light of Christ in the face of the darkness that is coming
