Today’s Sermon

04 Aug

Today the pastor was a gust speaker, who worked as representative of Shepherd’s College. As a result of his job, his sermon did seem to be a bit of a advertisement for Shepherd’s College (a college helping those with intellectual disabilities). That aside however, the actual passage he chose to preach on was 2nd Samuel 9:1-8.

Given that we had communion on this particular Sunday, and that they were trying to fit in a promotional video for Shepherd’s College (as well as a few stories about the people who had been changed by it), the sermon only had one point: We should love others, regardless of any disabilities they may have, just like David cared for Mephibosheth in spite of the fact that he was crippled.– To phrase it differently: In the same way that God showed His love for human kind by giving His son for us, in spite of our sinful nature (which must have looked to God much the way that a mental or physical disability in a fellow human looks to us), we should show love to others regardless of how they appear to us at the moment.
