Struck by God: Faith Works

Given our sin and brokenness, don’t we have to prove to God that we are worthy of God? Paul says “No. All we have to do is have faith in Jesus Christ.” In this next program of the series on St. Paul, Fr. Mike tells his own personal story. His background lays the foundation for his attraction to St. Paul. Paul was obsessed with the law and honored a fearsome God. Fr. Mike shows how Paul grew from this concept to a loving and forgiving God as he did in his own life. In Paul’s struggle with the Jews over the law of circumcision, he quotes Jeremiah that what we should work for is circumcision of the heart. (JER 4:4) The cast from “Paul, A Musical” by Fr. Mike sing “We Won’t be Circumcised” (Music by Sally Wolf, Lyrics by Alicia Rowe). Then Fr. Mike talks about doubt as part of our faith. What is our attitude? Is it one of hopelessness or of deep faith? Gabriel Silva sings “It’s a Big Hearted Freedom” from Paul, a Musical (Music by Sally Wolf, Lyrics by Alicia Rowe) written by Fr. Mike. Questions are posed for use in prayerful reflection or group study.
