Sermon: Lent 2 (Reminiscere).2012

Matthew 15.21-28
3 March 2012

In the name of the Father and of the +Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

The present course of things / is deterioration. Just leave an orange out on your table (well, perhaps your picnic table outside would be a better option), just leave it there for a few days, maybe a week and you begin to see what I mean.

This is not natural. I didn't say, the natural course of things is deterioration, but rather the present course of things is deterioration. Deterioration, destruction, even death, these things aren't natural. Life was created immortal, eternal, after the image of its Creator. Man was not created to die, neither was the orange created to deteriorate.
