Fourteenth Sunday After Pentecost… 8/21/2016 (REVISED)

BE CURIOUS… (push)

God of all creation, you reach out to call people of all nations to your kingdom.  As you gather disciples from near and far, count us also among those who boldly confess your Son Jesus Christ as Lord.

Q: Who am I???

A: Loved by God

Am I alone in not liking the answer to my question???  The answer does not directly answer my question; however, it does not need to.  I have learned that God works in mysterious ways.  The reassurance that we have a God that loves us, no matter what obstacle/“hardship” is put in our way, pales in comparison the love that God has for us.  This reassurance gives me strength to overcome that obstacle/”hardship”. “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me”…  (Philippians 4:13)…

I have to be honest… these translations of the Holy Bible are p+ssing me off.  Let me explain, I am currently looking up different translations of our brother Paul’s written words in Philippians 4:13 and I have yet to find a translation that capitalizes the word “HIM”… *I did on this blog*  Jesus Christ was a male… The Son of Our Heavenly Father (John 3:16) shall be capitalized when showing glory to God.

That’s the thing… we should stay curious about God.  We might be wrong sometimes in our answers; however, the feeling of being wrong (no-one likes to be wrong) should not prevent us in our own unique walk with Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

I want to share a scripture, I discovered on my walk…

Romans 11:33-36 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

33 O the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!

34 “For who has known the mind of the Lord?
Or who has been his counselor?”
35 “Or who has given a gift to him,
to receive a gift in return?”

36 For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory forever. Amen.

THERE IT IS AGAIN… THE WORD “HIM” IS NOT CAPITALIZED…

This should not be a big deal, but to me it is.  I know that this translation (NRSV) is recommended by a certain seminary… but WHY???

God created me… God loves me… God empowers me… (Psalm 138)

I pray that everyone that comes across my words understands the ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ.  It is our belief in the life and resurrection of Jesus Christ that opens the gate to heaven…

Thank you God for creating me… me.  THANK YOU!!!

This past week, I have been traveling around central PA… It seems that where ever I go, I realize it is how important it is for the body of Christ to treat other human beings.

On 8/19/2016 I went to Lancaster to check out a church that has the same name as my local church… Holy Trinity… on the way home I stopped to order subway for lunch… I LOVE THEIR CHICKEN TERIYAKI SUBS.  The cashier swiped my bank card and said it was declined, that’s cool I said… (I just got paid Wednesday)… I then went to Hershey and got a new card issued to me from the bank… My account is all good… THANK YOU.

The bank brings to mind a cool thing a good friend said to me at the Gym the other night.  “When you are thanking God… it is like making a deposit in a bank… a THANK BANK… when you need help Jesus will pay you back with interest.”

THANK YOU GOD FOR YESTERDAY!!!

THANK YOU GOD FOR TODAY!!!

I am now going to Hershey to read my favorite PSALM to the church that I am a member at in Hershey, PA… Let me teach you if you are not familiar with a Lutheran service… I volunteered my time to be a reader… I will read 2 lessons, a psalm, and a church prayer… The lessons will consist of a scripture from the Old Testament and one from the New Testament… The Holy Gospel is read by the pastor… Cool HUH???

A: Loved by God

Am I alone in not liking the answer to my question???  The answer does not directly answer my question; however, it does not need to.  I have learned that God works in mysterious ways.  The thought that we live in an evil world and time, pales in comparison the love that God has for us. We might ask the question if God loves us then why is there so much hatred in the world?  It is ok to ask… That’s an easy answer… IT’s NOT OVER YET… Be a shining light of God’s love for us.  The reassurance of God’s love gives me strength to overcome any obstacle/”hardship” that is my way of honoring God. “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me”…  (Philippians 4:13)…

I have to be honest… these translations of the Holy Bible are p+ssing me off.  Let me explain, I am currently looking up different translations of our brother Paul’s written words in Philippians 4:13 and I have yet to find a translation that capitalizes the word “HIM”… *I did on this blog*  Jesus Christ was a male… The Son of Our Heavenly Father (John 3:16) shall be capitalized when showing glory to God.

Thirteenth Sunday After Pentecost… 8/14/2016 (REVISED)

FREEDOM!!! (push)

Almighty and ever-living God, you have given great and precious promises to those who believe.  Grant us the perfect faith which overcomes all doubts, through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

FREEDOM!!!

We live in a country where I am free to express my belief… THANK YOU GOD for having me be born in Harrisburg Hospital… My mom has told me that the doctors that were present were listening to a football game… a Penn State game… Yet another reason why I am a Penn State fan for life.

Anyway, back to the freedom to express myself… Under man’s law…

US Constitution First Amendment:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances…

This is man’s law, which coupled with religious beliefs brings me much hope.  Hope in a brighter tomorrow.  The First Amendment protects me from governmental intrusion when worshiping God with other Christians is right.

I want to share with you something that happened to me this morning while I was working on my relationship with God (reading the bible and creating some MS PowerPoint Slides)… I was reading the 56 Chapter of the book of Isaiah found in our old testament in the Holy Bible… Isaiah testifies that the people that recognize the Lord’s reign with pureness of heart will be welcomed in His house. (Please excuse my paraphrasing) I then followed a reading I found for the Thirteenth Sunday After Pentecost in the Lutheran Book of Worship (Hymnal) and continued to add my creativity to a PowerPoint slide.  This second reading was written in the 11 Chapter of the book of Romans through life experiences of our brother Paul.

*IF YOU ARE VIEWING VIA MOBILE PHONE… CLICK “REPLAY” UNTIL IT GOES AWAY…

Romans 11:29-32

29 For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. 30 For as you were once disobedient to God, yet have now obtained mercy through their disobedience, 31 even so these also have now been disobedient, that through the mercy shown you they also may obtain mercy. 32 For God has committed them all to disobedience, that He might have mercy on all.

HOWEVER, I WAS TO LAZY TO REFERENCE THE WHOLE SCRIPTURE IN MY POWERPOINT SLIDE… I conveniently forgot to record the 13-15 verses in Romans Chapter 11…

*IF YOU ARE VIEWING VIA MOBILE PHONE… CLICK “REPLAY” UNTIL IT GOES AWAY…

IT READS…

Romans 11:13-15

13 For I speak to you Gentiles; inasmuch as I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry, 14 if by any means I may provoke to jealousy those who are my flesh and save some of them. 15 For if their being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?

Isn’t that just like being human??? Our flesh makes us jealous of one another and lazy sometimes… BE SPIRITUALLY GUIDED not GUIDED BY THE FLESH…

What is it like being guided by the Spirit of God (Holy Spirit)?  It is AWESOME!  I, honestly, do not know what today may bring; however, I know where I will be.  I will be in church hearing the word of God spoken.  I am going to hear scripture from Jeremiah Chapter 23 and Hebrews Chapters 11 and 12 spoken to me along with other witnesses. THANKS BE TO GOD!

These readings are awesome… please read… please…

These scriptures are very encouraging to me… In Jeremiah the Lord speaks and tells of false prophets that don’t speak the true God’s spoken word… maybe that is why I encourage YOU to read…

Hebrews informs us that the prophets of old were not as blessed as us… they did not have the knowledge and gift of the Savior and Lord Jesus Christ’s suffering for their sins… Some prophesied of a Savior… but who would’ve thought to make it Jesus… God… that’s who.

Twelfth Sunday After Pentecost… 8/7/2016 (REVISED)

THANK YOU GOD FOR TODAY!!! (push)

Almighty and everlasting God, you are always more ready to hear than we are to pray, and to give more than we either desire or deserve.  Pour upon us the abundance of your mercy, forgiving us the things of which our conscience is afraid, and giving us those good things of which we are not worthy to ask, except through the merit of your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

WEAR THAT CROWN…

Dear brothers and sisters, grace be to you from our Lord Jesus Christ… It is funny to me that I pray for you all to have grace… smh (shaking my head) if only, I heard my own prayer… God knows, that I lose my grace when I workout… (YES, I am always at the gym)… An occasional swear word slips out of my mouth… To me, that is not reflecting the Lord in a good way.  WE ARE A REFLECTION OF OUR CREATOR… Truly, Truly I say to you, I must try harder to represent our Lord Jesus Christ (Jesus Christ = Immanuel = God with us) (ISAIAH CH. 7 & 8) in a good light.

The idea of representing Jesus Christ in a dark world gives me hope.  Hope for an AWESOME tomorrow.  What happened to me this past Tuesday was an awesome example of how a good representation sets a good example to other people in society.  I went to Karn’s (Grocery Store) to heat up my lunch (graciously given to me from a friend) and buy a Diet Peach Ice Tea to drink.  By the cooler, I talked to a worker employed by Karn’s.  I have met him before in the parking lot months before.   He was the “cart collector” and always had a smile on his face and a “good afternoon” for me… This time, I ran into him inside.  We started talking.  He told me that it was his first day working inside.  He had the job of cleaning the bathrooms.  That was the first time I heard frustration in his voice and saw a frown on his face.

I told him that he was not alone.  “I to clean bathrooms at the gym where I work part-time… BUT, you know what??? (I LOVE IT!!!) It won’t stop me pursuing a job that benefits from my educational background. ATTITUDE IS A DECISION””  This immediately brought that smile back on his face.  I continued to thank him for having such a good attitude in the past, gathering the carts outside… He then went back to work cleaning the h+ll out of those bathrooms 🙂 THANK YOU GOD FOR YESTERDAY!!!

Remembering yesterday brings to mind a letter written by, our brother in Christ, the Apostle Paul.

Paul writes in Romans:

I tell the truth in Christ, I am not lying, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Spirit, that I have great sorrow and continual grief in my heart. For I could wish that I myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my countrymen[a] according to the flesh, who are Israelites, to whom pertain the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the service of God, and the promises; of whom are the fathers and from whom, according to the flesh, Christ came, who is over all, the eternally blessed God. Amen.

This declaration, of being blessed, shines an AWESOME light for Christ.  I think, Paul gives us a good example of how to act as Christians.  He shows us that we are champions, one and all, empowered by God’s spirit… We will taste victory and sweet success made possible by His love and gifts to us… However, we may fear the harsh judgment of the majority or feel inadequate to standards set forth by others. We may even be unsettled by thoughts of death, persecution, and dark spiritual powers.  BUT, Paul celebrates the absolute assurance that no one and nothing can come between us and the love of God. 🙂 THANK YOU GOD FOR TODAY!!!

WEAR THAT CROWN.

That brings me to today… Guess what I am doing??? I am the “READER” at my Evangelical Church of the Holy Trinity.  In a Lutheran service there is a First Lesson (written in our old testament), Second Lesson (written in our new testament), and a prayer for the church spoken by a member of the congregation.  I will be volunteering my voice to spread these Holy words among fellow believers.

I am reading the story of Abraham before he was called Abraham (Abram)… and a testimony from our brother Paul referring to Abraham’s life and the choice of God’s people to walk by faith (Hebrews 11:1-16)… I am excited to say the least!  BRING IT.

Eleventh Sunday After Pentecost… 7/31/2016 (REVISED)

HAVE COMMUNION WITH ME… (push)

Gracious Father, your blessed Son came down from heaven to be the true bread which gives life to the world.  Give us this bread, that he may live in us and we in him, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Have Communion with me…

We all have a commonality as followers of our Lord Jesus Christ.  I have a hard time trying to understand Religions that make other brothers and sisters in Christ feel alienated.  I hope and pray that no-one in my church mistakenly does this.  Being brought up a Lutheran and a member of a Lutheran church, I can name 95 excuses… THAT’S RIGHT… EXCUSES… why I shouldn’t want to have communion with Catholics; however, there is ONE truth of why I should… Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior.

*IF YOU ARE VIEWING VIA MOBILE PHONE… CLICK “REPLAY” UNTIL IT GOES AWAY…

My question to Catholics is “am I welcome to have communion with you in your cathedrals?”  I have been told numerous stories on how Lutherans are not allowed to commune with Catholics; however, this feeling of alienation makes me want to go with a friend to a Catholic Mass in Harrisburg, PA…

Communion is a beautiful time in people’s life to remember the life and death of Jesus Christ with fellow brothers and sisters in Christ…

“Holy God, mighty Lord, gracious Father: Endless is your mercy and eternal your reign.

You have filled all creation with light and life; heaven and earth are full of your glory.

Through Abraham you promised to bless all nations.  You rescued Israel, your chosen people.

Through the prophets you renewed your promise (Isaiah 55:1-5); and, at this end of all the ages, sent your Son, who in words and deeds proclaimed your kingdom and was obedient to your will, even to giving his life.

In the night in which he was betrayed, our Lord Jesus took bread, and gave thanks; broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying: Take and eat; this is my body given for you. Do this for the remembrance of me.

Again, after supper, he took the cup, gave thanks, and gave it for all to drink, saying: This cup is the new covenant in my blood, shed for you and for all people for the forgiveness of sin.  Do this for the remembrance of me.

For as often as we eat of this bread and drink from this cup, we will proclaim the Lord’s death”

Beautiful huh???

I learned that it is awesome to learn from the past and move on… (Jesus has RISEN) God sent us prophets written about in the Old Testament in our Holy Bible… I encourage you to read the prophecies of Isaiah.  Isaiah was extremely right on with his visions of the future.

An Invitation to Abundant Life

55 “Ho! Everyone who thirsts,
Come to the waters;
And you who have no money,
Come, buy and eat.
Yes, come, buy wine and milk
Without money and without price.
Why do you spend money for what is not bread,
And your wages for what does not satisfy?
Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good,
And let your soul delight itself in abundance.
Incline your ear, and come to Me.
Hear, and your soul shall live;
And I will make an everlasting covenant with you—
The sure mercies of David.
Indeed I have given him as a witness to the people,
A leader and commander for the people.
Surely you shall call a nation you do not know,
And nations who do not know you shall run to you,
Because of the Lord your God,
And the Holy One of Israel;
For He has glorified you.”

BREAD… REMEMBER… READ…

*IF YOU ARE VIEWING VIA MOBILE PHONE… CLICK “REPLAY” UNTIL IT GOES AWAY…

To me, Isaiah offers us the words to instill a deep faith within our soul.  The birth, life, and resurrection of Jesus Christ verifies this scripture… let me explain… In verse 2 Isaiah asks why spend money for what is not bread? In John 6:35 Jesus says I am the bread of life.  Isaiah goes on by telling of a leader, who has covenant (promise) with you, to glorify God.  Truly, Truly I say to you… this is the point of taking communion.  Drinking the wine, is done in remembrance of the covenant (promise) between you and God.  Jesus Christ took your sins and mine to the cross to be put to death… LEAVE THEM THERE…

THANK YOU GOD FOR TODAY!!!

LET’s GO2 CHURCH.
