Important, Re-Thinking the Bible

That special class of salty, light-bearing people to whom Jesus preaches

This is what is all too often missing in the church. It’s refreshing to find it here.

Sermon on that special class of salty, light-bearing people to whom Jesus preaches.

The ones we are told were coming to Jesus, the ones presumably to whom he was preaching, were described as the sick, those who were in pain, who fought with demons, who were broken and addicted and late on their back taxes. Who has more than one ex-wife, and who watch too much Netflix and think that maybe a little heroin might be a good idea. In other words, they were people standing in the need of God. And standing in the need of God is standing in the way of blessedness in a way that having it all together never is.

He looks out into the crowd of people in pain, people who have been broken open – those cracks that let in and let out the Light, who have the salt of sweat and tears on their broken bodies, and says you ARE salt. You. You are light. You have that of God within you the God whose light scatters the darkness. Your imperfect and beautiful bodies are made of chemicals with holiness shining in it…you are made of dust and the very breath of God.

Read the rest of Nadia Weber’s sermon, here. There’s an audio link as well.

Thanks to Tim at Jesus Without Baggage for the referral.
