An Unlikely Hero

Every story has a hero or heroine. The people of Israel needed a hero who could save them from their enemies and save them from themselves. But an unlikely hero emerged from the tiny town of Nazareth and was baptized in the Jordan River. Jesus was not the hero they wanted, but He was the hero they needed. Heroes come in all shapes and sizes. Our church is called to follow in the footsteps of Jesus, to serve our members and to serve our neighborhood. What kind of church will we be?

Once Upon a Time

The story of our faith did not begin with us. It began with many faithful people throughout history who made sacrifices and took leaps of faith because they were following the calling of God. As we think about ourselves now, we must always remember those shoulders that we stand on that gave us a firm foundation and loved us into being. From Abraham and Moses all the way to the founders of this church, we would not be here without the faithfulness of God.

Send Me

In our prayers, in our hopes we often ask for God's help, for God to help others, to solve problems, to send miracles. In our passage from Isaiah and in our hymn, we pray a different prayer. We pray that God will send each of us. Send me to the world to serve. Send me to the world to help. Send me to the world to inspire. Send me to shine God's light. Sometimes God answers our prayers by sending us into the world to answer the prayers of others.

A Divine Reflection

In our mind we often imagine a God that is old and gray . . . a grandfather or possibly a grandmother who has been here caring for us since the beginning of time. Our scripture and our new hymn today call us to look for God in many different places. If we are all made in God's image, then we should be able to recognize God all around us.

Abide With Me

Abraham Lincoln was once asked during the Civil War if he believed God was on his side. He responded, "Sir, my concern is not whether God is on my side, but whether I am on God's side." So often we pray that God will be with us, helping us with challenges, healing us when we are sick. But when we pray for God to be with us, we must also accept the challenge to try to live our lives by God's side, following God's will rather than our own.

Amen
