WELCOME TO CHURCH

God comes to us in free and undeserved favor in the person of Jesus Christ who lived, died, and rose for us that we might belong to God and serve Christ in the world. Following Jesus, Presbyterians are engaged in the world and in seeking thoughtful solutions to the challenges of our time.
 
Presbyterians affirm that God comes to us with grace and love in the person of Jesus Christ, who lived, died, and rose for us so that we might have eternal and abundant life in him. As Christ’s disciples, called to ministry in his name, we seek to continue his mission of teaching the truth, feeding the hungry, healing the broken, and welcoming strangers.

SERMON THIS WEEK

Blessedness

Those people who seem to be blest in a special way are considered lucky. We usually think of blessings as things or circumstances that bring joy. That is true, of course, but sometimes the joy may not be what we think it is. Jesus called the poor “blest.” But what kind of joy would such a blessing bring? Why would those who hunger consider themselves blest? One needs to hear the promise of Jesus in order to get the answer. Blessings are those circumstances in life which lead his to God. A sense of our poverty leads to God if it results in an understanding that only God can fill us. How could anyone be filled by God if he is full of himself? Hunger leads to God if it results in an understanding that we are not sufficient for ourselves. And so in our neediness we are blest, not because our needs make us feel good, but because they open us up to the one who can fill us with what we truly need. Our needs can wake us up to what is most real in our lives. To that extent, they are blessings. 

Let us pray: Dear Lord Jesus, may I learn something from my needs. If they lead me to you, then they will truly be blessings in my life. Amen.
