Everything God offers

August 11th, 2021

Phillip Martin, pastor of Epiphany Lutheran Church in Richmond, Virginia begins today’s sermon with a story of how he received the pizza delivery guy at the altar right as he was about to start Communion. He says, “For a minute or two there that guy probably thought this pastor will try anything to boost the worship attendance! Pizza for Holy Communion! Let’s party, everybody!” In today’s sermon from John 6:51-58, Martin reminds us that, just like that pizza delivery, “the whole story of Jesus is one about delivery….Jesus comes to deliver God’s life all the way inside of us… When we eat of Jesus, we get everything God offers.”

This sermon is from A Sermon for Every Sunday, a series of lectionary-based video sermons designed for use in worship, Bible study, small groups, Sunday school classes, or for individual use.
