Sermon by Rev. Libby Grammer
Be Holy
So often we speak of “works of faith” as something inherently wrong or lacking. We are saved by faith alone! And surely, we are saved by faith – no amount of our own good deeds earns God’s grace. But God has called us to a life of holiness that lives out a radical call to justice and peace – God expects us to live in a certain way. Jesus’s interpretation God’s commands take that even further – we are to go that extra mile for others if we are to be holy.

Scripture Texts:
Leviticus 19:1-2; 9-18
Matthew 5:38-48
