The debt to love

September 10, 2017

Justice is not finished until it achieves reconciliation. Christ paid the just penalty for sin when he died on the cross, but the work of reconciliation continues. Our primary task as Christians is not to punish the wicked, but to seek reconciliation and healing from the effects of sin.

Readings from Ezekiel 33:7-11Romans 13:8-14Matthew 18:15-20.

Preached by the Rev. Jake Dell on September 10, 2017 at Holy Trinity Church Inwood.
