I admit I don't have the bulletin in front of me, so the verses in John might not be quite right, but it is from his series of bread in John 6.
The gospel was, once again, about bread, but Pastor Robert preached on the New Testament reading on "the armour of God."
Study Sunday! Follow along with us as we have a group Bible Study about what this week's lesson means.
It is all Saint's Day. And as Pastor Bill reads the Gospel, remember that:
1) We are all Saints.
2) Every Saint has a past.
3) Every sinner has a future.
This picks up a bit into the sermon. Sorry!
This is a bit cut-off in the Gospel reading. Sorry!
Whose authority? God's.
God's mercy isn't earned. It isn't. Heaven isn't what we think of fair. And that's good. It means that God's love is all encompassing. That can be hard for us to deal with.
The 15th Sunday after Pentecost, September 17, 2017
Are you hearing the question that Jesus is asking?
God is not absent, but makes Himself known to us, in the midst of life's storms.
Jesus said to them," They need not go away; YOU give them something to eat."
The Kindgom of Heaven isn't in the future; it is now.
Jesus is bascially asking us, "what's in your spirtual wallet?"
Jesus sounds a bit fustrated in this gospel reading - why aren't people listening? Squabbling gets us no where.
What does welcome mean? Also, what does enjoying a good sermon mean? - Taking action.
You have a gift. Use it.
What does being a treasured belonging of God mean?
Happy Father's Day!
The Spirit transforms. We shouldn't be afraid of that.
