Our lessons from The Story have moved into the time of the prophets, Elijah, Elisha, and Isaiah. Greg’s sermon spoke to what a prophet is. Not someone who only prophesies the future, although he may. He is appointed by God to call the people to repentance, obedience, and hope.
Jesus was said to be a prophet when he preached in his hometown. He told the people what they should be doing. We can, and should, be this kind of prophet today.
We don’t need to give out lists of what we’re against, but we need to let people know what we stand for. We need to stand up for justice, mercy, and to offer hope to people for this life and for eternal life through Jesus Christ.
