Sermon Series: The Politics of Jesus
Sermon Title: The Patience & Empathy of Exiles
Scripture Reading: Romans 12:9-21; Colossians 3:12; 1 Peter 2:9-12
The early church did not see themselves as the moral guardians of society or try to impose their will on the world. They had no political power, yet they turned the Roman Empire upside down. How did they do it? They faithfully lived out the Messianic agenda of Jesus as citizens of the Kingdom. They trusted God to work in his time. Listen as Pastor David invites us to embrace the patience and empathy of exiles.
