Faithfulness and Fidelity in the Liturgy Letter Newsletter for 20th Sunday after Pentecost

Faithfulness and Fidelity

Those who trust God are called to acknowledge their dependence and live blamelessly (Psalm 8 and Psalm 26). Job is an example of faithfulness, even in the midst of suffering (Job 1:1, 2:1-10). In all things we must follow Jesus Christ (Hebrews 1:1-4; 2:5-12). This includes honoring faithful relationships between men and women (Genesis 2:18-24 and Mark 10:2-14). Jesus calls his followers to receive the ways of God's kingdom like little children, in innocence and purity (Mark 10:14-16 and Psalm 8).

Salt and Salvation

God is able to provide salvation and grace in the midst of insurmountable situations (Esther 7 and Numbers 11). God’s glory is evident, so seek righteousness and cry out to God (Psalm 19). He is able to save those who seem destined for destruction (Psalm 124). Those who pray and seek help from God (James 5:13-20) must be willing to help and protect the vulnerable in Jesus name. His followers are called to season the world around them and seek peace (Mark 9:38-50). [Read more & Sermon Resources].
