2020-10-18 Sunday Worship “Render to God”

“Render to Caesar what belongs to him” – That was Jesus’ answer when asked by the religious leaders if it’s okay to pay Roman taxes. They were trying to get Jesus to say something that would get him in trouble with the authorities. But Jesus wasn’t simply endorsing obedience to the laws of the land. Nor was he just being clever to stay out of trouble. He was in fact making a very profound point about himself… and about me and you… and our response to God. In this week’s message, Rev. Jim draws out what Jesus was really up to in  Matt 22:15-22.
