26 May Sermon Snap Shot May 21, 2017
Spread the word and feed the poor.
As Jesus utters his parting words in the Gospels of Matthew and John, he offers a few key imperatives – a few essential, urgent tasks on which the disciples are to stay focused: Go, Baptize, Teach, Remember, Feed and Follow.
Over the next two weeks, I want us as a church to focus on two of Jesus’ final imperatives: Go and Feed. What if we, for two weeks, simply focused on following two of these final commands from Jesus? How might we be a blessing to our community…and how might we be blessed by God in the process?
And as you “Go and Feed” in the coming days, I invite you to be mindful of how the Spirit is at work – in you, around you, through you and in others as well. I have a sneaky suspicion that we’ll all discover that “Hey, this Gospel stuff is for real!” and “It’s not that complicated after all!”
From Sunday, May 21 201 message based on Matthew 28:16-20 and John 21:15 entitled, “Go and Feed!”
