Let Love Be Genuine

10 September 2023

Sermon given by the Rev. Nathan Stomberg on 15 Pentecost (9/10/2023).

We might say our love is genuine. We know what Paul means, and we know it sounds good. But our love is not free of pretense. Our “genuine love” is a lot more like “genuine leather” than the standard to which Paul exhorts us. We want to have the appearance and the benefits of authentic love without any of the responsibilities and discomforts it puts upon us.

Readings: Ezekiel 33:1-11; Psalm 119:33-40; Romans 12:9-21; Matthew 18:15-20
