Something Old, Something New ...  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 13: 44–52
Summary: Chapter 13 of Matthew, made up of Jesus’ parables about the kingdom of heaven, concludes with a statement about scribes “trained for the kingdom of heaven”: They will be able to bring forth both the old and the new. The new is Jesus and the kingdom that he proclaims. This is also old, however, because it has been God’s plan from the beginning. We are challenged to deal with the new situations that history will bring by being well versed in the old, the biblical witness to Christ.

Summary: Life sometimes heaps crushing loads on us. We help neither ourselves nor others by mouthing pious platitudes such as “God never gives us more than we can bear,” which isn’t promised in scripture to start with. But let us trust instead what the Bible does tell us: that God is with us no matter what, and that we have in our power the ability to help one another carry the burdens of life.
