Homilies about Proper 19

Focusing on the Divine  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 8: 27–38
Summary: When Jesus began to describe the suffering that soon awaited him, Peter rebuked him. But Jesus in turn rebuked Peter, telling him that his mind was not on divine things but on human things. That can easily be true of us as well. We can get so caught up in our own desires and wishes, our own agendas for ourselves and our loved ones that we may not spend much time focusing on divine things, especially the will of God. The truth is that it is only as we seek the will of God in all things that we discover God’s plan for us, which in turn brings great joy and satisfaction.

Signs  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 8: 27–38
Mark 8: 27–35 for LFM
Summary: These verses are the climax of Mark’s gospel. What has come before in the gospel finds completion in Peter’s claim that Jesus is the Messiah. Jesus’ rebuke of Peter and his foreshadowing of the Cross show the direction that this completion will take in the immediate future — and in the coming centuries. Here Jesus responds to earlier requests for a sign with the sign of the Cross.

The Little Matter of You  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 8: 27–38
Summary: As it was in the time of Mark’s gospel, so it is now: People have many different opinions about who Jesus was, what he stood for, and what his life means today. As followers of Jesus, even today, we are the “you” in “But who do you say that I am?” We see, and proclaim, a different “Jesus” from the one seen by other religions, by popular culture and by the “spiritual, not religious.”

What Jesus Didn’t Ask  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 8: 27–35
Summary: When Jesus asked, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter gave the right answer, but in the wrong context. Peter, like many today, believed that Jesus was the Messiah but did not understand Jesus’ messianic purpose.
