Secrets and Sparrows and Swords, Oh My!

Jun 25, 2017

Passage: Matthew 10:24-39

Speaker: Dave Lyle

Series: Lectionary Year A

Category: Pentecost season (summer)

Our gospel reading today is filled with sayings of Jesus. The common thread is the life of discipleship. As followers of the Master, we are called to live life out in the open, proclaiming the gospel from the housetops. Jesus notes that this will not necessarily lead to what we often envision as the good life. No, our closest relationships undergo change, even painful transformation, when Jesus enters the picture. Our very lives will be lost, but in losing them, we find the life that really is life. As we follow Jesus, we put our faith in the God who counts even the hairs on our heads and promises that in losing our lives in Christ, we will be saved.
