Invitation to Worship

What would you say is your biggest blessing?

Our Gospel lesson this Sunday talks about blessings. Jesus talks about a number of things, as blessings, that we don't normally associate with being a blessing. Jesus says, “Blessed are you who are poor…Blessed are you who are hungry…Blessed are you who weep”. I have to say these aren't blessings that I hope come my way. However, if we don't find ourselves blessed in these ways (poor, hungry, weeping), our biggest blessing then is to help those that are—to help bring them the Kingdom, to help them feel full, and help them to laugh again. I'll talk about this a little more on Sunday. :-)

God Bless,

Pastor Stacy

This Sunday’s Lessons

Interesting Gleanings

Luke 6:20-31 Commentary by David Tiede - Working Preacher 

  • Saints are "holy ones" (Greek: hagioi), the "blessed of God" (Greek: makarioi: Luke 6:20-22). 

  • All Saints Day is a witness to God's way of blessing the world, not simply reinforcing the entitlement of the privileged to the way things are, but revealing God's justice fulfilled in mercy.

 

Defining Discipleship (Luke 6:12-26) | Bible.org

  • There is a world of difference between these two statements. Matthew’s account limits the “poor” to the “poor in spirit.” Luke’s account limits the “poor” to the disciples, who have chosen poverty in order to follow Him. 

  • This raises an interesting and important point. What is it that makes following Jesus so great a blessing that men will gladly give up riches, comfort and even friends to do so?

  • The point of the passage is clear. We must make a decision as to our values and their priorities. We must all choose to forsake some things in the pursuit of others…We must choose what in life to pursue. Every choice has both benefits (blessings) and a price to pay.
