Homilies on Ordinary 19

You searched for sermons preached on: Ordinary Time 19, Cycle C
 
Dressed for Action  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 12: 32–38
Summary: Jesus advised his followers to “be dressed for action,” and to “be like those waiting for their master to return.” A lot of us are dressed for success, excess and recess but not for the appearance of Lord of the Manor. This passage calls us to tuck in our tunics and togas, and be ready for the Lord. Kingdom people are servants who stay alert, who put worrying aside, who know where their true treasure is, who stand at the ready knowing the Jesus may put in an appearance at any time, and who, are not only to put to work by Jesus, but also served by him.

Leave Room for the Unexpected  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 12: 32–40
Summary: While anticipating Jesus’ return, we should neither become so preoccupied with his return that we neglect the day-to-day kingdom work nor become complacent about his return. The goal is this: While we are waiting, keep on serving.

Nothing to Lose  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 12: 32–40
Summary: Jesus wants us to loosen our grip on that which we fear losing so that we can lay up treasures in heaven which are utterly secure from loss. A “loose hold” on the things of this world only increases our sense of expectation and readiness for his return. Jesus tells us to be in a lifelong state of expectation for his return, able to function fruitfully and productively in the world, but ready to let it all go in a moment’s notice in order to take on a new set of responsibilities when he returns.

There Are Such Things but Do Not Be Afraid  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 12: 32–48
Summary: Though the monsters of popular fiction are just fiction, there are frightening things in the real world. When Jesus tells his followers not to be afraid, he isn’t denying that fact. But the threats that the world and our own sins present have to be seen in light of God’s decision to make Jesus’ followers his own people. That fact should change ideas about what is most important in life and motivate us to act as God’s people.

Where Is Your Heart?  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 12: 32–40
Luke 12: 32–48 for LFM
Summary: This passage may sound like a call to abstemiousness, bitter and parsimonious “self-denial” in the bad sense of the word, but it is not. It is, above all, a promise of a joyous new life. We are being called to leave possessions behind so that we may “possess” a new life even greater than the familiar life we’ve come to know.
