I wonder if we forget at times where to go for restoration. This week, we are reminded for wholeness and restoration, we are invited to go in faith to our Lord and Savior, healer of our every ill.
Jesus reminds us when it comes to vulnerability, we all are vulnerable. We all are broken. What gives us the power to care for one another and encourages us to live together in a healthy caring community, is that we are not only broken, but we are also blessed through the gift of salvation through our Lord and Savior.
I hope as you watch this sermon, you hear that message that you are valuable and loved by God and are called to share the message of God’s love with the world. Heaven and we know that the world needs to know they are valued and loved.
The world invites us to be those that acquire power and use power for our own benefit and for our own good. Today, we learn that although the world values and rewards us when we acquire power over, Jesus invites us to Kingdom Power.
Our Sunday text reminds us that to be a follower of Jesus Christ, we are called not just to focus on our own survival, but instead to be the church and focus on God’s mission to bring God’s kingdom to earth. Each time we pray the Lord’s prayer, we ask for that to happen. We say, “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done.”
