God Will Not Be Fooled

18 September 2022

Sermon given by the Rev. Mark Galloway on 15 Pentecost (9/18/2022).

In our sinful nature, we naturally seek personal gain and prosperity over the Word of the Lord. We are tempted to fool God into thinking we are perfectly good (when we are not), just as we fool other people into thinking we are more righteous than they. But God will not be fooled by our human deceptions, and we cannot escape our own hypocrisy except through the Grace of Jesus Christ. Prosperity will always disappear, but the Word of the Lord stands forever.

Readings: Amos 8:4-12; Psalm 138; 1 Timothy 2:1-8; Luke 16:1-13
