This Coming Sunday

Please join Dr. Will this second Sunday of Lent, February 28, 2021, as he preaches “Learning to Walk in the Dark: The Way of the Cross (Psalm 22: 22-31; Mark 8:31-38)

After three years of intense preaching in Galilee, healing the sick, welcoming those in the margin of the society, touching the untouchable, breaking bread with the unclean and welcoming children, Jesus turned his attention to the south, in the City of Jerusalem.

It is there that he said to his disciples “If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake, and the sake of the gospel will save it.”

It was the first time Jesus mentioned the word cross. But the disciples were very familiar with it. They witnessed how the Romans used it as a tool for capital punishment, state control and security. By mentioning the cross, Jesus conveys to his disciples that his three years adventure would certainly end up with his suffering and death. And he ascertains that the way of true discipleship is the way of the cross. No one could truly follow him, if she or he doesn’t deny himself, lose life and take up the cross.

In this sermon, I make the case that often of time our society preaches a Christianity that is not demanding, and without any sacrifice required. It is a feel-good Christianity that is specialized on human ego, my needs, my feelings, my relationships, my salvation. Rather than turning the attention to ourselves, and to how-to sermons, one has to give his/her life away for the love of God.

I contend that very few of us would become martyrs for the sake of the gospel but that the call to deny ourself comes to us in a more modest way. For example, when the parent patiently nurtures a needy child, a son or daughter tending to an aging parent, a spouse caring for a sick husband or wife. Those are ways we deny ourselves and follow Jesus.
