"Like Christ"

July 14, 2024


In our gospel lesson for today, the power of John the baptist was respected by King Herod. The king believed him to be good and Holy.  King Herod even believed that Jesus was actually John the baptist resurrected. Because of the King's respect for him, the King had no intentions of killing him until he made that deal with his daughter in front of the court circle, military officers, and leaders of Galilee to grant any request, and that request was the beheading of John the Baptist. The power of the important people who bore witness to the promise and the request outweighed any respect of power that the King had for John the baptist.

Because John the Baptist used his power to speak truth to the King and his new wife over their breaking of the law, eventually it resulted in his beheading.

We often speak of us being disciples, the one that learned from Jesus in his presence and guidance. If we think about it though, really we are all more like John the baptist. We don’t have the experience and training of the living Jesus’s mentorship. We are on our own sharing the good news and baptizing others.


"Shake it Off"


Jesus instructed the disciples,  “Whenever you enter a house, stay there until you leave town. Any place that does not receive you or listen to you, as you leave it, shake off the dust from the soles of your feet as a testimony against them.”

Jesus wants us to share the good news, but he doesn’t want us to force the message. If we are not well received, we are supposed to shake it off and leave.

How do we balance being bold enough to share the good news and yet not be over aggressive to force the good news onto others?


Social Justice

We are a church that is Learning to Love More. Loving and caring for others in our community is what Jesus has commanded us to do.  Watch all of our archived worship services here.
