[DISCLAIMER: So I like to take my time off and I like writing my sermon on Thursday, it’s my rhythm. I am realizing though that I may only be blogging Monday-Thursday every day. I will post the sermon from Sunday as well. I’m still figuring out how all this works but I’m liking the reading, I hope you’re liking the reflection.]
I’m not sure if it’s just me today but this just seems to be a call to walk around and look at the cool stuff God created, which is nice…I guess. It just doesn’t seem to be jiving with the great ends theme. Maybe, exhibition of Kingdom of Heaven to the world, but not really. I’d be open to someone helping me out on this one.
This is a weird pericope, most of it has to do with God not letting the Israelites be a laughing stock anymore, God saying, “you know all that stuff I did to you, well…sorry, how about I fill your threshing floor and we’ll be straight. Right?” Then the last two verses are the verses that Peter quotes in his speech on Pentecost. Maybe God is sheltering and nurturing God’s children but it kind of just sounds like an abuser who says, “No really, I’ll change this time.” These passages are hard for me.
1 Corinthians 2:1-11
It’s a rough day for me. Based on the title of this section “True Wisdom of God” I guess it fits in “the preservation of the truth” category, but it also says, we don’t really know the truth, God does. Well. That’s. Just. Awesome.
Better luck tomorrow.
