On November 12, Pastor Katy preaches on Ephesians 6:5-9.
Following the events of last Sunday in Sutherland Springs, many of us have questions. Why do these things keep happening to innocent victims just living their lives at a concert, on a bike path, in a night club, and finally at a family church on Sunday morning? We ask what we can do to prevent such things from happening and how we can protect ourselves. The answers to our questions always seem to come up short. So we ask one more: How do we truly live in the world that we live in and honor Christ in an imperfect and broken society? This question is not a new one, and we learn from the author of the letter to the Ephesians that the early church wrestled with the exact same thing as things like slavery were the accepted norm in Jesus’ time. We bear the scars and legacy of our country’s brokenness from slavery, violence, and racism, but that pain does not have to carry the final word.
