This summer we are going to take the theme of Underlinings for our sermon series. “Why simply preach on the passages I think are important?” For that matter I have lots of underlined books on my shelves, so why only remark on what I’ve read or seen or heard? Here’s my thought – I’d love for you to send in your underlined passages!
The only way for the Light to Shine in and through us is to become a people who exercise “bold humility”. Unwavering in our commitment to Jesus, not just the content of Jesus’ message but the way Jesus delivered that message – humbly.
Perhaps Lent is not about giving something up as much as it is embracing something that restores hope, vision, faith, dreams; something that brings life. God died in Christ so that we could have life. Get a life. Live a life. Have a great ...LIFE. So, this Lent instead of giving something up, embrace something, or preferably someone again (God) and practice the presence of God in all things.
