8th Grade Faith

When we are in eighth grade, we are often taught the rules and commandments, because at this time in our life, the “rules of life,” basic boundaries, and morality are what our minds can grasp. On the flipside, a more mature faith sees God not as a “cosmic cop in the sky,” but a heavenly Father who loves us. In this message, we look at the older brother from the parable of the Prodigal Son. His emphasis on rules and loss of a relationship keeps him from celebrating life with his Father.

Entering the Mission Field: Vision

In the Gospel reading this Sunday Jesus is at a Sabbath dinner at the home of a leading Pharisee. Jesus tells a parable. He tells a story about a wedding feast. He uses this parable to remind us to invite all people to the “feast”, not just important people or people that we may like. Also, not to take the best seats for ourselves. We are to call all people to come and eat at the Lord’s Table, and to become disciples of Jesus We are so blessed here at Saint Mary to have welcomed Deacon Doug Martin and his family to our parish. Deacon Doug has a beautiful life story that he will share with us about how the Lord called him to the table. And, how very soon, he will be ordained into the priesthood of Christ. Hallelujah!

David for King: The Kingdom

God is faithful to His promises. The promises that God made to Abraham, that through him he would bring blessing to all the peoples of the earth, is fulfilled in Jesus Christ. The promises that he made to David, that he will establish a kingdom that will reign forever through his lineage is fulfilled in Jesus Christ. God is faithful to his promises. When John the Baptist announces the coming of Jesus, he says, “The kingdom of God is at hand.” Announcing to everyone that the Kingdom of God is here, what He promised to Abraham and David, a kingdom that would reign everlasting, an eternal kingdom is here! We are The Kingdom.

David for King, Refining Stewards

When you possess money, possess wealth in this life, it is entrusted to you for a period of time. You are it’s steward or manager, but someone else’s turn is going to come soon because this isn’t our home. We’re going to live somewhere in eternity. When we understand this principle, that we are stewards, not owners, we start to see life differently. This isn’t our home. Heaven is our home.

David for King: Relationship Rift

This week we learn that relationship rifts can become a chasm when left unaddressed. If you have a relationship that needs work, you can start the healing by saying you’re sorry, “I’m sorry, this relationship is not where I want it to be. I’m sorry for my miscommunication. I’m sorry for my part of the problem.” Healthy relationships are made up of people who are willing to lean into the relationship and repair the rifts.

David for King: Relationship Rift

David for King, Confession

Today we learn that instead of covering up our sins and failures we admit them. We admit them first to ourselves, then to God, and then to the appropriate people in our lives. If we are willing to admit mistakes upfront we can save ourselves from the pain that comes with the cover-up, that comes from lying about it or taking other measures to hide it from others. We can see that when we admit our failures, it brings peace to our hearts. Another lesson is to receive those admissions of failure with grace. If we can create environments where people feel free to admit their failures, we’ll have much healthier families and communities, a healthier country, a healthier world!

David for King, A Leader After God's Own Heart

This week we hear about David’s eventual rise to the throne. Although there are hurdles, David succeeds and takes his rightful place as the anointed king of Israel. David balanced great strength with great worship. Worship and prayer require vulnerability, humility and effort. The success of David’s kingdom will not be determined by David’s power nor by his ingenuity or wisdom or eloquence or even his good looks. The kingdom will be built on David’s trust in the power of God!

David for King, Moral Margin

Last week we talked about inquiring of the Lord, asking God for His wisdom and counsel. There are some things you don’t need to ask God what his counsel is, because he’s already given it to you. It’s already in his Word, it’s already in the scriptures. So we don’t need to ask God about things that he’s already told us are wrong. See, David knew what was right in this weeks story because he loved God’s law. He loved God’s teaching.

David for King, Asking God

David escapes from the court of King Saul, and his life takes a few twists and turns. I encourage you to read 1 Samuel so you can read it for yourself, but eventually, we are told in 1 Samuel, "David departed from there and escaped to the cave of Adullam (Ad-dual-am), and when his brothers and all his father's house heard it, they went down to him."
