Today's scripture reminds us that Jesus gives us abundant live and his love overflows. We are also reminded that this love overflows through the church, the gathered people of God. Even though we are not physically present with each other, we are here for each other through everything. The followers of Jesus are on-call. Jesus us calls us to love, to encourage, to cheer on, and to hand a box of tissue to family, friend, neighbor, stranger, and those we have yet to encounter. How is Jesus calling you today to let his love overflow?
"Heart of the Matter" is a seven-week series concluding with the Festival Day of Pentecost. Easter is not just a day. It is a whole season of time when we remember and celebrate that the Spirit of Jesus lives on in each of us. So over the next few weeks, we are worshiping and praising God as the early disciples (later apostles) did, in their homes with glad and generous hearts, breaking bread, and having the goodwill of all people. It is in this way, that we are connected. We are connected through the love and grace of Jesus. Worship script by Marcia McFee and Worship Design Studio.
