Lyric For The Day 10.3.13 from Impermanent Things by Peter Himmelman

WE ARE WHAT WE LOVE - Stocki's Sermon on "Where Your Treasure Is..."

Stocki speaking

Yesterday's sermon in Fitzroy was on a subject that I believe Christians and the the Christian Church need to look seriously at... For centuries Christians have believed that we are what we think. We define ourselves by Creeds and Doctrines. Yet, the Bible concentrates far more on the heart. The Jewish Shema in Deuteronomy is about loving God with all our hearts, mind and strength. In Leviticus we are told to love our neighbour as ourselves. Jesus brought those together and also suggested that if we love him we will obey his commandments. James K A Smith from Calvin College influenced the meat of this sermon in his book Desiring The Kingdom. Smith suggests we are not what we think, we are what we love.

You can hear the sermon here - http://www.fitzroy.org.uk/Media/Player.aspx?media_id=103263&file_id=113153 - where I take the Irish word grá, Augustine, Bob Dylan's son-in-law, James K A Smith and even Norn Iron T-shirts to give grace notes to Jesus wise advice that would liberate us from the distractions and chains of impermanent things. Is my desire after Jesus as deeply rooted as the sad wee man who needed to run half a mile further on Saturday than the week before. Jesus wants our grá (passionate desire in our gut)!
