Sermon Short – From Dark to Light – Whose words?
James 3:1-12, Mark 8:27-38
A curious characteristic of Christ’s teaching is his reversal of conventional wisdom – his inclination to turn things on their heads and make us see that the kingdom he speaks of is very different than what we expect – the last are first, the master is servant, the poor are blessed. For our next series of services at Gale we are going to play with the stories in the Gospel of Mark that illuminate this point. Through it all we see that following Christ brings us from the darkness into the light.
There are many examples we can find of how the world can be a dark place. The over-riding principle in Christ’s teaching is that his followers are the lights that dispel the darkness. Do our words help to dispel the darkness?
