Sermon 08 August 2021 (Proper 14)
Get up and eat for the journey by Fr. Dana
Simple Summary: Elijah: strong in the ministry of God, then overcome by attacks from the enemy and the cares of the world. Peter: granted revelation of Jesus as the Christ, then overcome by the desire for immediate victory in this life. Jesus “truth in advertising”: this life will be difficult; you must deny yourself, take up your cross, and follow Me; and oh, by the way, life will not be fair.
The end is good, even awesome, but the journey is long and too much for you in your own strength. Get up and eat: not just for today, but for the journey to your destiny in Christ.
