There’s a great deal of bad news around these days, aren’t there. Fighting, killing and bitterness in our world. What we hear on the news or elsewhere, really are the symptoms, aren’t they. They are the mere indicators of a problem much deeper than what can be seen on the outside. Any man-made measures to stem the tide of evil in our society – while important and necessary – if these measures are at the exclusion of God, they serve in many cases to be a mere “Band-Aids” on a gushing wound, or mere “Panadol” to temporarily relieve the pain of a disease that’s invading every area. The real problem is the human heart. As somebody once said, the “the heart of the matter is the matter of the heart!”
Listen along as we unpack Jesus’ statement: “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God”. (This sermon was preached at St John’s Lutheran Church on Sunday 30th August 2017). Please feel free to comment. God bless as you listen!
