Wednesday’s Chapel Homily

Sermon on Romans 1. And it is as I was sitting at the piano and playing the hymn afterwards, that it hit me like a ton of bricks that I had left OUT the most crucial bit of Gospel. Hebrews 2:

Hebrews 2:11-13 (KJV) 11 For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified [are] all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren, 12 Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee. 13 And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me.

HE IS NOT ASHAMED OF US. That’s the awesomeness of His love and that’s why finally we will not be ashamed of Him. Sigh. So, when you forget to give full octane gospel in the SERMON, you sneak it into the PRAYER. Which I did. And I hope everyone heard and was blessed by it too. For whoever believes in Him will not be put to shame. Glory to God in the highest!

Dear Will: In 1957 I heard Pr. Kleinert, President of the English District, preach a sermon on this text for Confirmation. For the first time in my life I realized what a precious, life- and joy- giving thing the Gospel is. Thank you for reminding me of that in this post and in many others.
Peace and Joy!
