Sermon Snap Shot May 13, 2018

But as today’s Scripture reminds us, this transformation should not take place simply on a person-to-person level. If we are fulfilling our calling as a church, we should also see God at work through us as a collective group. And here’s the beauty of how God works – God’s math is not our math! For God, 2+2 does not equal 4….it equals far more. As we combine our talents, our gifts and our resources into common mission – as we seek to be “witnesses In Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and beyond” – God blesses and multiplies our offering and accomplishes far more than we could ever imagine accomplishing on our own.
That’s why If you were to ask me to draw a picture that captures the essence of this story, I would draw a picture of a droplet hitting the water. As we reach out, our impact is local, then regional, then national and eventually we will see ripple effects that impact the other side of the world.
From Ascension Sunday, May 13 message based on Acts 1:1-11, “Hurry Up…and Wait!”
