Sermon: Proper 8B (OT)

1 July AD 2012 (Pentecost 5)

Theme: Hardship, Hope, and Healing

Summary: The Lord sends troubles to correct, discipline, and strengthen His people. Often these seem more than we can bear. Yet bear them we do, and find strength for the doing through our Lord Jesus. He was the one who willingly took human grief and pain upon Himself that we might not face eternal affliction and damnation.

Lamentations 3:20
Text: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him.

It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord. It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth. Let him sit alone in silence when it is laid on him; let him put his mouth in the dust — there may yet be hope; let him give his cheek to the one who strikes, and let him be filled with insults.

For the Lord will not cast off forever, but, though he cause grief, he will have compassion according to the abundance of his steadfast love; for he does not afflict from his heart or grieve the children of men. Lamentations 3:22-33
