Sermons on John (Page 3)
In Philippians 2, Paul wrote (paraphrasing) “Have the mind of Christ; try to think, ‘what would Jesus do, what would Jesus say, what would Jesus think?’…” Because if you try to do that, you’re not going to go far wrong.
Anglican Christians: St Michael and all the angels (Revelation 12:7-12 John 1:47-51)

Stewardship – Focussing on what we do have, rather than what we don’t have. The financial challenges for the year ahead: thriving youth and children’s ministries, church maintenance, church organ. Remember, God won’t ask you for what you don’t have; God asks us to share, to use what we do have.
When you’re concentrating on one thing, you often miss other events. Sometimes when Jesus walks alongside us, we don’t realise he’s there or we don’t recognise him. We need to learn to see him and to recognise what he’s doing in our lives. And then we need to bear witness!!

The anointing of Jesus in Bethany. Mary shows her love for Jesus. Something passionate and extravagant seems to be the only apt human response to make. How might God be challenging us to show passionate love and compassion to others?
