Whatever we buy with the emperor's coin is not actually ours. Christ is the Lord whose image is not on any coin but who has chosen us to imitate him, bear his image, and become the currency of love and blessing in the world. He will give us eternal life as our everlasting possession.
Readings from Isaiah 45:1-7; 1 Thessalonians 1:1-10; Matthew 22:15-22.
Preached by the Rev. Jake Dell on October 22, 2017 at Holy Trinity Church Inwood.
