Sermon Title: The Word Made Flesh
Sermon Text: 2 Samuel 12.1-14; Matthew 3.1-3
Delivered by: Pastor TJ Campo
Delivered at Park Road Presbyterian Church

 “Prepare ye the way of the Lord!” This was, of course, the message of that last great prophet, John the Baptizer, who urged people to greet this soon-to-be-revealed Christ with repentant hearts.
And since we’ve been working up to one of the most notorious sins in the Bible …followed by an equally well-known repentance, so for the next few weeks, leading up to Christmas, we hope to look at David’s repentance as a pattern or paradigm of this practice that… some people think of as outdated or primitive or even psychologically unhealthy or at least undignified. 
But we hope to see that this practice or remedy as actually “good for what ails ya’” and is most often a doorway into deeper psychological/spiritual health.
Truth is: without it, one cannot become a Christian and without it, one cannot continue in that life. Today, we begin to consider repentance starting with: 
1) A Hindrance to the Remedy
2) The Feel of the Remedy 
3) The Results of the Remedy


A Reflection Before the Service
No doubt I now grew very pale; but I talked more fluently, and with a heightened voice. Yet the sound increased and what could I do? It was a low, dull, quick sound much such a sound as a watch makes when enveloped in cotton. I gasped for breath and yet the officers heard it not. I talked more quickly more vehemently, but the noise steadily increased. I arose and argued about trifles, in a high key and with violent gesticulations; but the noise steadily increased. Why would they not be gone? I paced the floor to and fro with heavy strides, as if excited to fury by the observations of the men but the noise steadily increased. Oh God! what could I do? I foamed I raved I swore! I swung the chair upon which I had been sitting, and grated it upon the boards, but the noise arose over all and continually increased. It grew louder louder louder! And still the men chatted pleasantly, and smiled. Was it possible they heard not? Almighty God! no, no! They heard! they suspected! they knew! they were making a mockery of my horror! this I thought, and this I think. But anything was better than this agony! Anything was more tolerable than this derision! I could bear those hypocritical smiles no longer! I felt that I must scream or die! and now again! hark! louder! louder! louder! louder!

"Villains!" I shrieked, "dissemble no more! I admit the deed - tear up the planks! - here here! - its the beating of his hideous heart!"

-Edgar Allan Poe, The Tell-Tale Heart (1843; closing lines)

The Call To Worship
Oh, that You would rend the heavens and come down, that the mountains might quake at Your presence -- as fire kindles the brushwood, as fire causes water to boil-- to make Your Name known to Your adversaries, that the nations may tremble at Your presence! When You did awesome things which we did not expect, You came down, the mountains quaked at Your presence. For from days of old they have not heard or perceived by ear, nor has the eye seen a God besides You, who acts in behalf of the one who waits for Him.

-Isaiah 64:1-4
