Speaker : Pastor Rob Sauers
Luke 12:49-53
(ESV) “I came to cast fire on the earth, and would that it were already kindled! 50 I have a baptism to be baptized with, and how great is my distress until it is accomplished! 51 Do you think that I have come to give peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division. 52 For from now on in one house there will be five divided, three against two and two against three. 53 They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.”

Hymn: TLH 514, st. 1,3,5: God Moves in a Mysterious Way

Hymnary.org Organ Audio

1. God moves in a mysterious way 
His wonders to perform; 
He plants His footsteps in the sea 
And rides upon the storm. 

3. Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take; 
The clouds ye so much dread 
Are big with mercy and shall break 
In blessings on your head. 

5. His purposes will ripen fast, 
Unfolding every hour; 
The bud may have a bitter taste, 
But sweet will be the flower.
