Sermon 01 Dec 2019  (1st Sunday of Advent)

Are you ready to meet Jesus? by Fr. Dana

Simple Summary:  What is the motivation behind everything Jesus does?  It is love.  He is love.  When mankind fell, God did not remain passive – He acted out of love.  Jesus makes salvation available to all, but for us to receive it we cannot remain passive – we must act out of love.  The Gospel describes what happens to those who act, and to those who don’t: “one will be taken and the other left”.
