So the message last week was based on Matthew 12:15-21 – Servant King
Someone after the message, more or less implied that this kind of preaching is a bit over the heads of people.
Now I did adapt an academic paper on the use of Isaiah 42 in Matthew 12 for this message.
Yet, I adapted it to a more popular level.
It was not a story or testimony, but an exploration of the ministry of Jesus seen through this lens.
Is this too deep? I don’t think so, but then each week I have already spent a week with the sermon.
How hard or easy should a sermon be?
Should it stretch our thinking?
Should add a few more polishing strokes to the smooth stones in our minds,
Or add a new rough piece that will need some time and thought to accommodate to our thinking?
