Proper 15 (20) 2016 – Luke 12:49-51

Thursday, August 11, 2016

Luke 12:49-51“I came to bring fire to the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled!  I have a baptism with which to be baptized, and what stress I am under until it is completed!  Do you think that I have come to bring peace to the earth? No, I tell you, but rather division!”

It is probably human nature to become complacent with the status quo.  Jesus called us to a radical love for and service toward one another, and in his day, like ours, this was disruptive theology.

Loving God, help us to be the compassionate people of faith you want us to be.  Amen.
