Eighth Sunday after Trinity

Matthew 7:15-23

I got to preach today at the church we attend. It was refreshing to be in a pulpit again. Here's the sermon:

In the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Grapes and thorns and figs and thistles—these fruits of grace and wrath, holiness and sin: they are marks of right preaching and false teaching. And, so, Jesus says, "Beware of false prophets...You will know them by their fruits."

St. Barnabas

Matthew 10:5-16, Acts 11:19-30; 13:1-3 [originally preached 12 June 2005]

Today is St. Barnabas. So, for today's entry, here's a sermon from the archives. Enjoy!

In the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

What we have before us is Jesus sending out the Twelve. He sends His disciples to preach a most joyous message: "The kingdom of heaven is near." "Joyous?" you say? Yes! This is the best news given for preaches to preach—the kingdom of heaven is near, that is to say, the Christ is come to take away the sins of the world.
