Israel's history is largely a barn-swing of actions. Obedience one day, lawlessness the next. Faithful and trusting one day, idolatrous the next. Various prophets wrote about God's ultimate desire for His people. Was it sacrifice in order to rid themselves of these sins? Or does God prefer something else? In Jesus' day, he answers this question and gives us the context and instruction for accomplishing what God requires of each of us. In this sermon we will examine the weightier matters of the law; Judgment, Mercy, and Faith. We'll see that these are not stand-alone topics, but instead are woven together and work in concert with each other.
