Sixth Sunday of Epiphany – Year A

Deuteronomy 30:15-20;  Psalm 119:1-8;  1 Cor 3:1-9;  Matthew 5:21-37

Rev.  Dale Nikkel

Paul warns the Corinthian church that quarrelling and infighting over rules are signs of spiritual immaturity. Jesus teaches that we are saved by grace, not by following a set of rules. Spiritual maturity is more than behaviour – it has to come from the heart. Discipleship is a process in which we learn to spread God’s grace in our relationships with others.
