Monetary and materialistic gain are on display at an ever increasing pace in our world. To many, the means justifies the end irregardless of moral codes, ethics or legal parameters. A chosen few will receive pardons for their indisgressions. God gave all a free offer of mercy. Welcome Jesus into your heart and accept God’s pardon. Live a life rich with God’s rewards. An inner peace and empathy for others, all to the glory of God.

Amen.

Timing and preparation are paramount in any successful undertaking, whether high stakes international diplomacy or day to day social interactions. So often unintended consequences derail will meaning yet ill prepared endeavors. Jesus ministry was a walk in time and preparation to gain the hearts of the masses, through word and deed. He lamented his delay in his ministry to Jerusalem, but much yet had to be accomplished. Hindsight focuses reality to his truth., live your life to his truth.

Amen.

Disparity between the haves and the have not’s is a growing cancer in all regions of the world. it festers and peculates with unpredictable outcomes. Many are driven from their homelands to seek a better future for their families. Sacrifice and reflection and preparation for a better future. The devil tempted Jesus but through sacrifice, reflection an preparation he fasted for 40 days with prayer, alone, before beginning his work for God. Jesus gave us a path forward for redemption and salvation. Walk his path to the glory of God.

Amen.

There has always been a generational divide between the youth and their elders. Information technology and all its modes of communication has enhanced the divide. Progress inherently challenges historical context and past lifestyles. The stretching of creativity and ideas for humanity to absorb. This striving and achieving is inherent in our DNA, but remember the ten commandments and their rock solid teachings and guidelines courtesy of Moses encounter with God. Remember Jesus teachings and his life template for all. These are constants for all generations. Embrace technology and change and the constants Jesus taught and sacrificed his life, that we might be saved. To the glory of God.

Amen.

ARC - Action/Responsibility/Choice. Our youth hold the chains of life, and consequentially survival or demise, from the past to the future. To every action, there is a reaction. Take ownership of your choices and live responsibly. The highway of life has many twists, turns and crossroads. Young people face unprecedented challenges. Travel the highway of life in Jesus footsteps. Give of yourself to the less fortunate and love your neighbour as you would love yourself. Youth linking the past to the future in Jesus name.

Amen.

An unprecedented divide exists today between the rich and their worldly possessions and the poor. Social media and all forms of communication make us all complicit to this tragic reality. Jesus spoke to the masses, healed the sick and promised life everlasting in heaven for those that believe in him. Many, comfortable with their lifestyle and riches, rejected Jesus. We are all as one in the eyes of the Lord for all who accept Jesus and his teachings into their hearts. Let us renew and refresh our faith in Jesus, his teachings and his sacrifice this morning through communion and live our lives to the glory of God.

Amen.

There seems to be a proliferation of injustice and untruths without bounds today, similar to the fish in the sea swimming in all directions. Jesus demonstrated to Simon, James and John by casting their fishing nets, to have faith and believe. Jesus calls us all to have faith and believe in the word of God. Is it me, Lord? yes, it is all those that walk in Jesus footsteps from the shadows of darkness and despair, to the light of truth and salvation. Accept Jesus’ teachings and live your life with his truths, to the glory of God and salvation everlasting.

Amen.

There’s an old expression, “you can’t see the forest for the trees.” Often, the truth is in plain sight but we’re blinded with preconceived opinions. The truth can be a leap of faith. Jesus spoke the truth and was accepted from afar yet denied with skepticism from his neighborhood as a child. Accept Jesus truths into your heart and allow misguided realities to evaporate. we are stronger together accepting Jesus truth.

Amen.
