The Rector's Corner
I was in my son’s church last Sunday to hear my old Pastor preach on “The Rich Man and Lazarus” and his sermon re-kindled in me the burning desire to spread the word that life is not about what you have but what you are.
No one is unforgivable to Christ. We simply choose to not forgive each other.
To err is human; to forgive is divine and a sign that we live in forgiveness.
Thinking about the upcoming Remembrance Services; what a quote from John 15:13;
Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends.
Laying down ones life does not necessarily mean dying; it may mean living in order that we can support another life to reach its full potential.
What is our mission? Is it to tell people about Christ our Saviour and Redeemer or is it to truly live in that knowledge and express it through our love for one another ?
Love real Christian is not that sloppy sentimental heartburning that we experience when we “fall in love with someone”; no!
It is the gritty, dirt covered, hands-on attitude we put on like a cloak when we “put on “ Christ. It is the need to get involved in the unpleasant things in life in order that more pleasant times may come about through Christi’s love. Not our love but His love expressed through our actions.
