Sermon 26 July 2020 (Proper 12)
Your final destination by Fr. Dana
Simple Summary: Salvation is a gift; it is also a covenant requiring us to make choices. The parable of the treasure hidden in a field illustrates this: the treasure was a gift included in the price of the field, but the one who found it had to choose to buy it … and then to sell all he had.
God says your final destination is to be conformed to the image of Christ. Every day you and I make choices that bring us either closer to that destination, or take us further from it.
