Sunday Sermon 2/10/13

The three readings today are reflections of each other across time. In each episode someone progresses from unworthiness to acceptance: an Old Testament prophet is purified, Paul talks about his conversion from Christian persecutor to evangelist and Peter is overwhelmed by Christ's miracle with the fish in the nets. The lesson is one of those wonderful biblical lessons, obvious yet startling. The eye of the needle screens out worldly excess, not people. Anyone can approach Christ.
