Almighty God, you once called John the Baptist to give witness to the coming of your Son and to prepare his way.  Grant us, your people, the wisdom to see your purpose today and the openness to hear your will, that we may witness to Christ’s coming and so prepare his way; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

PERPLEXED??? (nope… keep’n it simple)

i am reading Sunday in church… I really would love to see new encouraging faces during our service honoring God.  If you can not make it please check this post throughout the Week of the Third Sunday in Advent.  I will be adding these readings/lessons and personal testimonies for you.

If you have never attended a Lutheran Service before, LET ME HELP YOU… The service intended to honor God is very structured… I was fumbling around the pamphlet the first time I attended a service; however, I KEPT GOING

THRIFT

As I said before, I am reading on Sunday… This entails a lesson from the Old Testament (before the birth, life, death, & RESURRECTION of Jesus Christ), followed by a PSALM musically sung by a choir, followed by a lesson from the New Testament (after the birth, life, death, & RESURRECTION of Jesus Christ)… I will then ask the congregation to pray with me after the reading of the Holy Gospel by the pastor.  The Holy Gospels are books found in the New Testament of our Holy Bible.  They are written by Jesus’s Disciples… yes… they had the honor of spending time with Jesus Christ while He was in human form on earth… and yes, Jesus Christ had the same number of Disciples (Matthew 11) as Jacob was blessed with tribes of Israel (Old Testament)… 12… (Genesis 49)

ANYWAY… 

PERPLEXED??? (nope… keep’n it simple)

I want to share with you a lesson from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ written in the New Testament of our Holy Bible… IT READS…

Matthew 11:2-11

And when John had heard in prison about the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples and said to Him, “Are You the Coming One, or do we look for another?”

Jesus answered and said to them, “Go and tell John the things which you hear and see: The blind see and the lame walk; the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear; the dead are raised up and the poor have the gospel preached to them. And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me.”

As they departed, Jesus began to say to the multitudes concerning John: “What did you go out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken by the wind? But what did you go out to see? A man clothed in soft garments? Indeed, those who wear soft clothing are in kings’ houses.But what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I say to you, and more than a prophet. 10 For this is he of whom it is written:

‘Behold, I send My messenger before Your face,
Who will prepare Your way before You.’

11 “Assuredly, I say to you, among those born of women there has not risen one greater than John the Baptist; but he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.

AWESOME… just AWESOME…

JESUS CHRIST IS THE SON OF GOD… (John 3:16)

didnot

PERPLEXED??? (nope… keep’n it simple)

Jesus, when He was in human form, showed us that great leaders do good works and lead by example rather than stating one’s authority over another… GRACEFUL… HUH?

Please stop by this blog during your week… BLESSINGS!!!

AWESOME!!! This morning, I started my day going by way driving from Bainbridge, PA to Hershey, PA… It was raining when I left… I listen to 97.3 in the morning when I drive… In the middle of my trip the Beatles song “Here comes the Sun” came on the radio… at that instant it stopped raining and the sun came out…

THANK YOU GOD FOR TODAY!!!
