What a Sermon Should Be

The sermon should prompt people to some sort of action, or it should warn people of their behaviors or it should invite people into movement that is already taking place. Look at Jesus’ first sermon: “All the people in the synagogue were furious when they heard this. They got up, drove him out of the town, and took him to the brow of the hill on which the town was built, in order to throw him off the cliff” (Luke 4:28-29, TNIV).

    This is why we come an hour every Sunday to Mars. My life has changed into a life of servitude full of hope. I continually leave the gathering changed by understanding more the walk of Jesus and how to follow more closely in the Rabbi’s dust. I have fallen more in love with Him and His love flows through me to others. My world is now full of love and just when I think a couldn’t love more–Rob teaching and the teaching of others that come to Mars–causes the Holy Spirit to challenge me to love more.
