Lines in the Sand- Matthew 10:24-39

Here is the sermon I preached at Christ UMC in Franklin, TN, on June 25, 2017. I focus on the lectionary gospel for the day, Matthew 10:24-39. The epistle, Romans 6:1-11, is also referenced. We reflect on the tension between Jesus’ words about “not brining peace but a sword” and his earlier call in the Sermon on the Mount to be peacemakers.

Some questions to ponder- How do we respond when we face opposition for following Jesus? Who do we need to make peace with?

Here is the link to the op-ed I quote.
