Sermon: Third Wednesday of Lent

Wednesday 27 February AD 2013

Title: The Lord’s Darkness Dawns (MP3 Audio)

Christ Crucified Summary: “Be careful what you ask for, you might just get it,” warns an old saying. Today’s text warns Israel that they’d better stop asking for the Day of the Lord until they realize what that Day means to unrepentant sinners. We also must realize that without faith in Christ and His blood-bought forgiveness, we would also face everlasting darkness and eternal death.

Text: Woe to you who desire the day of the Lord! Why would you have the day of the Lord? It is darkness, and not light, as if a man fled from a lion, and a bear met him, or went into the house and leaned his hand against the wall, and a serpent bit him. Is not the day of the Lord darkness, and not light, and gloom with no brightness in it?

“I hate, I despise your feasts, and I take no delight in your solemn assemblies. Even though you offer me your burnt offerings and grain offerings, I will not accept them; and the peace offerings of your fattened animals, I will not look upon them. Take away from me the noise of your songs; to the melody of your harps I will not listen.

“But let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.” Amos 5:18-24

NB: For some reason, a few people have had problems trying to play the inline audio if Windows Media is their default MP3 player. If this occurs, you can either change to QuickTime or another default browser player, copy and paste the link directly into a selected player, or download it to your computer, where it seems to work regardless of which player. Several folks have suggested VLC Player from VideoLAN.

Other Readings: Psalm 46; John 12:27-36
