Stranger in a Strange Land

Stranger in a Strange Land

Aug 13, 2017

Series: Compassion in Action

Summary:

We are familiar with the passage from Micah 6:8 that tell us what the Lord requires of us. But the Deuteronomy passage goes even further. It emphasizes what the Lord, Our God, requires - fear God, walk with God, love God, serve God. And it is very specific in saying that God requires us to love the stranger, because we ourselves were strangers once. While the focus of the sermon is on immigrants, the message applies across the board - God, our God, calls us to love the stranger, not just like or accept or tolerate, but love the stranger, the one who is different in some way. That is our commandment.
