Thought Blurbs (5 July 2020)

Some thoughts from the 5 July 2020 sermon.

 Loving our enemies is done by invoking the value of self-giving love through action in concrete circumstances framed with a Biblical perspective on reality that incorporates both seen and unseen realities.

 Prayer was appropriate for many reasons, and in this case was a sound fighting strategy.

 Every ethical action is made within concrete historical circumstances.

 Paul and Silas’ action was made in a historical situation unique unto itself, in which they applied the commands of Christ accordingly.

 Sometimes, doors the Lord opens before us are not meant for us to go through, but for us to help or allow others through.

 What’s best for all is a who—Jesus.
