The End of Scapegoating
In this week’s sermon I used the text from Luke 8:26-39 to talk about how we don’t take responsibility for our actions. When Jesus removed the demons from the man in the story, he took away the town’s scapegoat. We must all be willing to take responsibility for our actions and be accountable for them. Jesus was the final sacrifice for our sins but we can only become justified before God by admitting our sins and removing the unclean things from our lives.
There is some banter at the start of this recording, it was the first time I rode my motorcycle to church.
