In so far as our lives are built around avoiding other people’s pain, we will not see miracles.
Have you ever sensed yourself waiting for Jesus to arrive into a situation or season of your life?
This weekend we’re pleased to share a sermon from Rev. Heather Semple, Senior Pastor of Red Cedar Church in Rice Lake, Wisconsin, a Wesleyan congregation.
Jesus calls his friends to deep and abiding love, the kind that sees not obligation but the joy of serving, of being, of vulnerable-but-safe connection.
Because there is no more important meeting we have today than to meet God in prayer.
Once we have entered into relationship with the Father, through the Son, via the Spirit, we want others to know that same life, peace, and hope that we have experienced. Once we know Jesus, we want others to know Jesus.
The reason why those feet are beautiful is because God is saying, yes, things are bleak now. But peace and joy are coming. Don’t give into that fear. Live in that joyful hope.
