Six Commandments for the Church

Leave a comment

 

Commandments spoken by Jesus that should define what the church should be:

  • A new commandment I give you…that you love one another.
  • Forgive.
  • Go and do likewise – not just Do likewise, but Go and do likewise!
  • Do this in remembrance of me.
  • Do not be afraid.
  • Give to Caesar that which is Caesar’s and to God that which is God’s.

Because of these commandments:

  • We are to be a place and community of love, forgiveness and healing/restoration.
  • We are given life through the eucharistic gathering.
  • We are to go out of ourselves and do the work of Christ.
  • We are to be fearless.

Only the outline of my sermon today is presented here. The audio file contains the sermon.
