“Sword of Peace” - Sermon Text: Matthew 10:34 - Rev. Shayne Jonker
Jesus Christ, His salvation, and heaven and hell are the most important things that there are. Next to Jesus, His holy life, His death, and resurrection, nothing else is significant. Not the weather, sports, terrorist attacks, not even our own lives. All of that’s meaningless when compared to the eternal reality of God's love for man in the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. That’s what matters, and that’s worth fighting for.
