Sermon 16 October 2022 (Proper 24)
Jesus as He is, or as you want Him to be? by Fr. Dana
Simple Summary: God offered of Himself to Jacob, and Jacob held on to Him even when it became difficult for him. Paul instructs Timothy to hold on to the truth, to preach it and teach it whether people receive it or not. We, too, are responsible for learning the truth as Jesus delivered it, and avoid teachers who tell us what our itching ears want to hear. As we are faithful in both learning and teaching the truth, we prepare the way for the Son of Man, when He returns, to find faith on the earth.
