Energy of God's Presence - Psalm 82

Energy of God's Presence - Psalm 82

On a Sunday of Dedication in the preparation for Holy Nativity, Fr John Brian's homiletic sermon examines the scripture lessons (Acts 7:44-53; Hebrew 9:1-14 and John 10:22-28) to discuss the reason for spiritual development and the energy of coming into God's presence.

When Jesus quotes Psalm 82 to the Jewish leaders who were questioning His divinity, only one verse is quoted but insight is gained when Fr John Brian uses Psalm 82 as a focal point in our relationship with God and His church.

This sermon lesson uses the readings and services appointed from the Malankara Syrian lectionary and was given on Sunday, November 7, 2010 by Fr. John Brian Paprock at Holy Transfiguration Orthodox Mission
Chapel, Madison, Wisconsin.

"We have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency may be of the power of God and not of us." 2 Corinthians 4:7.
