I am so thankful for your journeying with me and listening to Life-Giving Water Messages. Over the next couple of weeks, I will be enjoying a much needed family vacation and so there will not be services to listen to; however, if you visit First United Methodist Church’s YouTube Channel, you can watch the service in its entirety. If you are unable to catch it live on Sundays at 10:30 a.m., remember it takes a while for the livestream to process and post following the service’s end, so keep checking back on our channel to see if it has posted.
ANNOUNCEMENT: The Party On JohnCast is the newest ministry to be added under the Life-Giving Water Ministries umbrella. This podcast consists of a Calvinist (Rev. Salvatore Seirmarco) and a Wesleyan (Rev. Todd R. Lattig) partying on with totally tubular music, delicious java/drinks, and most excellent theological discourse! Party on!
Each episode features many fun segments including the He Brews segment (Coffee/Beverage review), Most Excellent Music Segment, and a discussion centered on Christian theology. The hosts are also sometimes joined by special guests.
Rev. Todd Lattig announces that Life-Giving Water Messages can now be streamed and/or downloaded via Spotify! Yay! Also, there’s a BIG REVEAL regarding the new and upcoming podcast show: The Party on JohnCast.
I have just finished with the series on the Beatitudes. I think it can be seen that Jesus Christ’s teachings were both provocative, as well as controversial. They were mainly the latter because they challenged the status quo of his times, and challenged people to see the sin within themselves in order that they might repent and change the direction their lives were heading in. Unfortunately, as we can see today, when those who have much are challenged to give more than they take, all hell breaks loose. This was the case in Jesus’ day too, and unfortunately Jesus was put to death on the cross for challenging the wealthy and preaching truth to the powerful. But Jesus’ story doesn’t end there, because he resurrected and his life and teachings live on in those who are faithful to him, as Lord, and his message as supreme.
This week I will be taking a short break from writing and will be putting out two previous devotions for your edification; however, when I do start writing up again, I will begin a new series that will continue on from the Beatitudes to the Sermon on the Mount as a whole. I pray you will continue reflecting on the previous series in preparation for the one to come.
