Sermon 19 Aug 2018
Are you lying by the pool? by Fr. Dana
Simple Summary: Wisdom has set her table and sent out servants with invitations: leave your own opinions and your own understanding and come. Jesus made the same invitation. He took the initiative, but now you must make the next move.
- If you lift a finger toward the Lord He will rush to your aid. Remember the parable of the prodigal son?
- If you sit and wait for the Lord to lift your finger, you may find yourself waiting for a long, long time. Remember the infirm man by the pool of Bethesda?
- “Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works [i.e., action], is dead.”
