“The sermon is done?” asked the latecomer of the pastor at the church door.
“The sermon has been preached,” said the minister. “It remains to be done.”
After the pastor has preached, the work of the church begins. Our minds have been instructed, our souls have been nurtured, and our emotions have been stirred.
When we pass beyond the four walls of the church building, we face a different environment: we breathe a different air. We can then no longer be passive. We are called to act. And we should act in accordance with our knowledge of God’s will.
