Scripture: 1 Corinthians 12: 14-31a, Luke 4: 14-21
Sermon Title: Hearing with Fresh Ears
Sermon Theme: Jesus’ friends and neighbors were not prepared to hear what Jesus had to say. They stayed mired in the past remembering the child they knew, clinging to their understanding of Yahweh, and hoping that God would act as they thought God should act. They had put everything into a neat little box; Jesus was a confused local boy, God was their God alone, the Messiah would come to them, and the world would be as they wanted. They could not accept they were wrong. Perhaps they needed to hear the word of God again, with fresh ears. Perhaps we need to hear the scriptures with the same.
