Suffice it to say, if ever a people need hope it is us. I don’t know if you have noticed, things aren’t going the way they are supposed to go. We are in the midst of a pandemic that is separating us from those we love. Because of Covid-19 we are all living in fear! We are in the midst of social unrest… political unrest… religious unrest… We are a divided people in almost every aspect possible. Based on Isaiah 64:1-9.
The theological implications of today’s text are profound. Jesus is saying, That God is more concerned about how we treat each other than anything else.Based on  Matthew 25:31-46 
What are we doing with this gift of life God has given us? Are we living a radical, sold out life, of love and service to others? Are we  risking it all, putting everything on the line, to share the good news of a loving God to this broken world?Based on Matthew 25:14-30

God is placing God’s healing of the world in the hands of Christ followers around the world...  God is expecting Christians, around the globe, to humble themselves, pray, seek God’s face, and turn from their wicked ways. Then and only then will God hear, forgive, and heal this broken world. 
Just before the last supper, the disciples of Jesus were bickering over who was going to be the greatest in Jesus’ kingdom. Who was going to sit at the left and who was going to sit on the right of Jesus. And Jesus, girded himself up with a towel and bent down and washed the disciples’ feet… every one of them…. including the feet of Judas! Such a wonderful example of perfect humility. 
Who is Jesus? He is love! Plain and simple… But Jesus is not the soft pillowy, warm and fuzzy, tingly kind love that we often associate with love. Jesus is RADICAL LOVE!

Jesus understood his mission. Jesus knew that he would be the final sacrifice. It is important for us to understand that Jesus did not come to start a new movement. He understood his mission as a demonstration to God’s chosen people the love of the Father. Jesus understood his mission to be a redemptive work. Jesus came to redeem God’s chosen people from the yoke of sin and oppression by those more interested in power and control than in love and grace. Jesus also understood that his mission would eventually get him killed.Based on Matthew 21:33-46Originally preached October 4, 2020 at St. Timothy Cumberland Presbyterian Church
What kingdom work do you feel God calling you to? What does it mean for YOU to wait? Don’t be looking for the big, knock you off your horse, new direction approach from God.
