Sermon 23 Sep 2018

Receive, believe, achieve by Fr. Dana

Simple Summary: Jesus Christ’s ministry on earth had two parts: preaching/teaching, and demonstrating.  The liturgy of the Mass is in two parts: the liturgy of the Word (spoken/heard), and the liturgy of the Table (the Word incarnate).  We are called to conform to His image, so we must declare the written Word and demonstrate the incarnate Word.  The Word only has power as it is received, believed, and acted upon – all three.

Lectionary: Proverbs 2:1-9; Psalm 54; James 3:13-18; Mark 9:30-37

Referenced Scriptures: Romans 8:28-29; Mark 6:45-52; Luke 24:13-32; Matthew 26:41; 1 Samuel 17:47
