Don McLean recorded a song titled "The More You Pay, the More It's Worth". Or maybe that was just the chorus. I'm old -- I can't remember anything anymore. The idea behind the song was that we value things by what they cost, rather than what they are worth. God's grace is free, but that doesn't mean that it doesn't call for a response from us. If we don't respond to God's grace, we are in jeopardy of devaluing God's grace in our minds! Christians have a job of work to do, and this week's sermon, A Job of Work, looks at Jesus' first sermon in his home town for clues about how Christians must go about gaining credibility.
Community Presbyterian Church of Bellefonte, Kentucky, was built on the casting floor of a 19th Century iron blast furnace. We use "The Casting Floor" as an image for the power of the Spirit to form us. Visit us at http://communitypresbyterian.org.
