Another Sermon Podcast #284

I was out of town last week and forgot to post the weekend’s sermon. How fitting that is for this week’s podcast! https://revjfletcher.sermon.net/pa/21111638.mp3 SHOW NOTES Proverbs 3:1-8 Admonition to Trust and Honour God My child, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments; for length of days and years of life and abundant welfare they will give you.

Podcast Episode #282

I started taking advantage of the fact that I upload my weekly sermons.  It’s been several years since I started doing that.  There have been many weeks I’ve been faithful to that endeavor.  There have been others that I wasn’t or when my sermon didn’t get recorded. Even so, I’ve uploaded over 200 sermons.  And here I was thinking about podcast topics! So, as to not reinvent the wheel (for now), I’m adding a little…..

Seeing each other as the image of God is the key.

Otherwise:

  • I’m just another annoying loud mouth.
  • You’re just giving another dollar to some guy on the corner.
  • Chances are they will always be your enemy.
  • You’ll never move toward forgiveness (for yourself or someone else).
  • Everyone else will always be the problem.

You get it, right?  It may take some digging.  You might find it to be one of the most difficult things to do.  But the more committed we are to seeing ourselves and each other as an image of God, the more peace we’ll experience.

Stay blessed…john
