Sermon on Luke 13:1-9, with references to Ezekiel 33:7-20, for the 3rd Sunday in Lent. A sermon about measuring the danger of sin, understanding that it leads to death, and why God's call to repentance is so urgent and insistent. Understanding how God's parental love for us demands boundaries. What does God do when we transgress those boundaries?
Sermon on Luke 13:31-35, for the 2nd Sunday in Lent, about Jesus' lament over Jerusalem, for rejecting and killing the prophets. How Jesus relates Himself to the Old Testament picture of God spreading out His wings as shelter for His people. Why we foolishly disregard God's words, and run like chicks from His protection. What God does to bring us back to Him.
