The Message That I Don’t Want You To Hear

Sometimes I give the sermon at my church.

This one is from Romans 12:3-8

For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you. For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your[a]faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead,[b] do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.”

To summarize…

Don’t think too highly of yourself.

The church doesn’t need warts.

Your ministry isn’t better than any other.

Don’t bully people with your abuse.

Talk about blessings instead of abuses.

And in the body of Christ, somebody has to be a sweat gland.

    thanks for putting this on here I was going to ask Peaches if there was a recording after I saw that you preached on Sunday and really wanted to hear it. You did not disappoint. I do have a body part for your of what nobody wants to a sphincter they too serve a useful purpose. Thanks again.

  2. This was gold, thanks so much for sharing. I feel like a nerve a lot of the time in the body, and it’s good to know that at times it has a purpose, and that it isn’t always a bad thing. Loved all the podcast throwback references too, made it all the more awesome.
