Sermon 27 September 2020 (Proper 21)

It’s how you finish that matters by Fr. Dana

Simple Summary:  You must own – take responsibility for – your sin; you can’t blame anyone else. To own your sin, you must recognize it as sin, which requires that you know God and His ways. To know God, to receive the Gospel – the “good news” – you must acknowledge the bad news: you need a Saviour.
But receiving the Gospel is not a one-time event. Jesus shows us that saying “yes” once may have no meaning whatsoever. It’s not about how you start, but how you finish your life!
