Listen to the Rev Dr Keith Garner’s sermon from this week’s Praise, Prayer & Preaching service.
By Rev Dr Keith Garner
In this passage, the Pharisees are trying to trap Jesus by asking him what he thinks is the greatest commandment and attempting to show that his priorities are different from the real faith of Israel. In Jesus’ answer we see that he saw and promoted a strong connection between Word and deed and we then consider the perspective we bring to our own volunteering. We reflect that our Christian service is a demonstration of what we believe and a response to God’s love for us and for all people as a combination of faith and works, love and deeds.
