This Week's Sermon
My wife and I always toss a coin to settle our disagreements. If the coin comes down, she wins, but if it stays suspended in air forever, then I win.
Saint Paul in his letter to the early Christians in Rome was writing to a group that had a lot of problems with those from without who were against them. They also however had conflicts within their group that Saint Paul felt needed to be addressed in his epistle to them.
Rom. 15:7 “Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God.”
The membership of these early Roman congregations was very mixed. There were people from various backgrounds from many different parts of Rome's vast empire. They were very different from each other in culture, education, race, and social standing.
These differences were bound to cause some misunderstandings.
Also, human nature being what it is, some of those in the group were going to feel that they were superior to some of the others.
Paul reminds them that as Christ bestowed His grace upon them all, both Jew and gentile, that they should all be like-minded and receive one another in love – and together praise and glorify God.
During Advent each year, we are reminded, as we prepare to celebrate Christ's birth, that he came that first time to redeem us from sin and reconcile us to our Heavenly Father.
We know that He suffered and died for us on the cross.
We know that He did this not for just you and me, but for all mankind.
He did this for us in spite of our weaknesses and our shortcomings.
None of us deserved this great love that Christ's sacrifice of the cross showed toward us. We all owe thanks to God for His wonderful grace.
We should therefore praise God, not only with our voices, but by showing love for each other. We as Christians need to live together in unity.
We need to be forgiving of each others faults and frailties, as our Heavenly Father has so wonderfully forgiven us.
While Christians may disagree with each other from time to time, we need to always remember that our forgiving of others is not an option, but a necessity.
As Jesus tells us in St. Matthew's Gospel, (Matthew 6:14-15), “For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”
And in St. Mark's Gospel he tells us, (Mark 11:25), And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses."
