Rev. Paul Tucker - April 21, 2024

A People of Justice and Mercy in an Age of Despair

In some of Jesus' most controversial moments, he dramatically disrupted the religious, political, and economic structures of his day in an effort to bring hope to those in despair. Echoing the cries of the prophets before him, Jesus didn't settle for a status quo that alienated and exploited people. He demonstrated that His kingdom is one built on doing mercy and justice!

Scripture References: Matthew 21:12-17

From Series: "Zeitgeist"

Noah was called “a righteous man, blameless in his generation” and in Acts 2 Peter urges those he is preaching to “to save themselves from this corrupt generation”. In a one sense this idea of those living faithful, committed lives is true for all people in all generations. There has always been and there always will be this remnant of the faithful in all generations. In another sense, each generation must, in the words of Jesus (Luke 12:54-56) “interpret the present time” in order to rise to the challenge of today. What are those challenges to faithful discipleship in today's "zeitgeist" or "spirit of the age", and what type of people is God calling us to become today?
