Sermon Remix: Jesus is a Brother + Jesus is Messiah

sermonremixgenericSo… I missed a week on the sermon remix and people noticed! Yay! I promise this was not a test to see if people would notice, but it’s nice to know that a little remix of the sermon is a good thing.

This week I’m offering up a double remix! Wooot!

Last Sunday we talked about Jesus as a Son and a Brother. Isn’t it true that we don’t often think of Jesus as being a part of an earthly family? I certainly don’t think of that very often. We talked about families. And then we talked about the 11 words that families need to say most often to each other:

I’m sorry.

I love you.

Please forgive me.

I forgive you.

I mentioned a podcast interview of a man who talks about people who are at the end of life who wish they had said those words more.

I also mentioned the ancient practice of ho’oponopono which is also based on those words.

This week we talked about Jesus as Messiah. I explained that Messiah means “anointed one.” We talked about the fact that there are many many prophesies in the Old Testament that talk about what the Messiah will be like.

We also talked about miracles this morning, particularly this fantastic miracle of Jesus rubbing spit on a blind man’s eyes. I wondered aloud if that’s the only reference to spit in the Bible and guess what?! There are many more instances of spit in the Bible and miracles! Coming soon: Blog post on this topic!

This morning I couldn’t help but reference what I believe is a true miracle, and that is the safe return of a classmate and confirmation buddy Michael Blodgett whose story of being lost and then found again has inspired so many of his former middle and high school pals.
