Sermon Series: Roots: Exploring the Core Values of the Brethren in Christ
Sermon Title: Pursuing Peace (8 of 10)
Scripture Reading: Leviticus 24:19-20; Matthew 5:38-45; Ephesians 5:1-2
Jesus taught us to love our enemies and showed us how to live non-violently in a violent world. When Jesus said, “You have heard it said… but I say to you” (Matt 5:43-45), he was calling his disciples to leave the old way and live in the new way of love. This new way is radical and appears foolish to the flesh, but through it we discover the wisdom and power of God.
In Pursuing Peace (8 of 10), guest speaker Greg Boyd (author, pastor & theologian) challenges us to live in love as Christ loved us and gave his life for us.
