Glimpses of the Kin-dom: But I Say

Feb 12, 2023    Rev. Amanda Nicol

Relationships within the body are important, but so is the relationship of the church with the wider community. Jesus is raising the standard of behavior in this text. He is making it harder, it seems, to be a Christian, a follower of Christ. He wants us to go further, to go deeper. In short, he is asking us to not simply follow the rules, but to consider how our behavior and our choices and our attitudes impact the wider community around us. Jesus calls us to draw the circle wider and see ALL the people.
