The Week of August 11 at CTS & FLC

Trusting God’s Kingdom
By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to set out for a place that he was to receive as an inheritance; and he set out, not knowing where he was going (Hebrews 11:8).” Want to know how your pastor actually ended up in your faith community? It’s a long story, but a short sermon.
We gather around the Gospel each Sunday even when the sermon is based on another reading. In today’s reading from Luke, Jesus promises the kingdom to us, his little flock, straining our minds with this uninhibited generosity. Even to us, so little and undeserving? Even to us, in the face of so many things to be afraid of? Suddenly everything we hold dear in this world is repriced, and the true value of things becomes plainly clear. In Christ, God has freely given us the kingdom.
So, why not sell our possessions and give to those in need?
