Business as Usual

Business as Usual

Sermon Introduction –

So often, our lives fall into a routine or “business as usual.” There is no doubt that stability can be a blessing, but God also comes to bring change to our lives! Where is God calling you to grow? When do you allow Jesus to shake up your routine?

Introduction to this week’s readings –

The third covenant in this year’s Lenten readings is the central one of Israel’s history: the gift of the law to those God freed from slavery. The commandments begin with the statement that because God alone has freed us from the powers that oppressed us, we are to let nothing else claim first place in our lives. When Jesus throws the merchants out of the temple, he is defending the worship of God alone and rejecting the ways commerce and profit-making can become our gods. The Ten Commandments are essential to our baptismal call: centered first in God’s liberating love, we strive to live out justice and mercy in our communities and the world.
