Homily 11/17/19 — Put to Death to Secure Your Life

November 17, 2019

Based on Luke 21:16-19 and Roman 8:28

You will be delivered up even by parents and brothers and kinsmen and friends, and some of you they will put to death; 17 you will be hated by all for my name’s sake. 18 But not a hair of your head will perish. 19 By your endurance you will gain your lives.

Do you have unshakeable hope in the time of tribulation or trial?  This is what our Gospel reading encourages.  It's expended on by Romans 8:28 

We know that in everything God works for good with those who love him, who are called according to his purpose.

The eternal dimension of what Paul means by "good" connects the two together.
