Preacher: Pastor Garrett Kell. Because we are fallen people in a fallen world we will have conflict with each other. People will hurt us and we will hurt them. This will happen both within the church and from those outside the church seeking to kill it. What is natural is to try to defend ourselves but God says that we should leave that to Him and seek to honor Him by extending mercy - even to our enemies. In this sermon we wrestle with this tough subject and consider how the Gospel helps us give grace to those who are the most difficult to love.
