We must learn to love and serve without any sign of success or gain. Christ’s love and Christ’s ministry bring him to his cross, where he suffers and dies. Yet there he works a salvation that vindicates both him and us. Knowing this, we can find the courage to love when love fails and serve when our service comes to nought.
Preached by the Rev. Jake Dell on September 3, 2017 at Holy Trinity Church Inwood.
