Sermons from November 2019
God is spirit. He is not constrained by space or time. He can be everywhere at the same time. But that doesn’t mean that God necessarily makes His presence known everywhere equally. The fact is, God shows Himself where He’s honored and worshiped.
Our finite nature tends to make us want to localize our worship of God. Many think that He can only be worshiped in certain places. But Jesus makes it very clear that God can be worshiped anywhere, anytime. In God’s eyes there are no places more sacred than any others.
God has been so graceful with us. Yet it can be easy to withhold grace to others, especially if they’re not like us. This was the trap into which Jonah fell. He was ready to die before he’d go preach repentance to the people of Nineveh. Can we fall victim to stingy grace today?
