First Sunday in Lent - 2/14/2016
"Setting Your Face to Follow" - Luke 9:51-62


"Jesus spoke about the kingdom of God wreaking havoc in our hearts. A new authority or regime is established in the hearts of Jesus' followers. That authority affects all that we are in all that we do in all spheres of life. The motif of the kingdom means that there is not one part of life that does not come under the authority of Jesus Christ. Fundamentally we are kingdom people, which means that Jesus is Lord in our hearts, homes and workplaces; our attitudes, thoughts and desires; our relationships and moral decisions; our political convictions and social conscience. In every area of our interior life, personal relationships or social involvement, we seek to know and live the mind and will of God."
