The Inheritabnce of God Worshuip Series: THE INHERITANCE OF ATTENTIVENESS
The prophet Elijah was a great risk-taking communicator, speaking God’s truth to power. In the previous chapter, he had declared the God of Israel’s superiority over the prophets of Baal, which resulted in the killing of these prophets. This sets us up for today’s scene, where Jezebel promises to exact revenge upon Elijah.

    Here we move from the promise of the Spirit as Advocate and Comforter, made by John in the Farewell Discourse, to a powerful birth of a Spirit-filled community that is empowered to live its mission in the world.

    In chapter 17 in the gospel of John, we have a plea for Jesus’ followers to become one. It is a poetic prayer that is simultaneously beautiful and repetitive, as we would expect to find in the Gospel of John. We get a glimpse into Jesus’ heart and longing for the believing community, which is another opportunity to try to grasp how Jesus understands unity.

    Loving Worship Series: SENT
    As disciples, we are all sent into the world to live out the love we have experienced. Embracing the reality that we are all “sent” in some way helps us keep perspective when are tempted to let our hearts be troubled or when we are tempted to give in to fear. There is intentionality in our efforts to keep God’s commandments.

    This passage begins a collection of passages known as the Farewell Discourse. Jesus is preparing the disciples for a life without his physical presence. More than offering comfort, Jesus is trying to reorient them toward their mission.

    Living Worship Series: LISTEN TO ME
    Jesus does not always answer the questions the way we want. People gather around Jesus and demand that he tell them, plainly if he is the Messiah. Jesus replies that he has already told them, but they did not believe. This might appear to be a mere “he said/they said” situation, where recall of particular events differs from person to person. However, what seems to be happening here is that those questioning Jesus are looking for a particular type of answer and Jesus is not giving it to them. It is not that Jesus has not answered the question, but Jesus did not answer the question in the way that they expected to hear it. In order to hear Jesus’ answers to our questions, we need to let go of what we want to hear and listen to what Jesus is saying.

    In the stories of Jesus seeing his disciples after the resurrection, several times we see Jesus having conversations with his disciples without them recognizing him—at least not right away. They don’t recognize him until he does something familiar.

    Living Worship Series: BELIEVE IN ME
    Jesus arrives among a group of disciples who are scared for their lives; they have every right to be. They saw their leader crucified and are concerned that they might be next. It is perfectly understandable for them to feel scared, anxious, and nervous—anything but peaceful.

    On this Easter sunday celebration, Pastror David reminds the congregation that Easter is more than simply remembering an historial truth of Jesus' resurrection. The Easter story is not complete until we make it our own and we too become resurrected to new life.
