Sunday Worship Message, “Rejected Stones”
Journey of Stones Week #2: 2nd Sunday in Lent
“Rejected Stones:” We know how it is that Jesus was rejected in real life, but have we considered how we (yes, us!) reject him all over, perhaps even day after day? There are a lot of things that are important to us, but when we choose them over Jesus… we reject him all over. A tough one to hear today.
“Sticks and Stones” (John 8:1-12) It would be a relief if we could say we didn’t throw rocks anymore, especially at our fellow human beings. But let’s face it: Every time we stand in judgement, a proverbial rock hits its mark. Contrast Jesus’ word to the woman. Brothers and sisters, sticks and stones still hurt.
