Sunday Message

Here's the MP3 of today's sermon. The Blessings of Living Under Authority is based on Matthew 8:5-13, 2 Kings 5 and Matthew 20:20ff. A centurion came to Jesus seeking the healing of his servant. Jesus offered to drop everything and come, but the centurion said that he understood authority and Jesus' word would be sufficient. He - and his servant - were blessed for livign under authority. That's not how we usually repond, though. More likely we're like Naaman the Syrian in 2 Kings 5 who chafed under authority or like James & John in Matthew 20 who yearn to be in authority. To live under authority we need to look to Jesus, follow Jesus' example and learn to practice discernment.
