The Great Comma – August 18, 2019

Rev. Sandra McNary Preaching

Scripture: Colossians 3: 12-17

Be tolerant with each other and, if someone has a complaint against anyone, forgive each other. As the Lord forgave you, so also forgive each other. And over all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity. (Colossians 3: 13-14)

In the Apostle’s Creed, there is a comma between “born of the Virgin Mary” and “suffered under Pontius Pilate”, a comma that delineates everything Jesus said and did between his birth and his death. This part of Colossians gives advice for daily, practical behavior for Christ-followers…what we do is far more important than what we merely believe!
