Which thief on the cross are you?
"We know that Jesus came for everyone, he came for the other sheep. He didn't come for just those that were considered holy, just those that were expected to be saved, he didn't come just for the Jews... he came for everyone. He came for "the other sheep" as well."
Whether we're ready to cast our stones at "those sinners" or "those sinners" are ready to cast their stones at us, we all have that same command, that opportunity, that Jesus provides to us all here today: to go and sin no more.
May we welcome The Resurrection and The Life into our hearts, into our lives, as we welcome the eternal reign of the kingdom of God that begins now, and forever and ever.
The Bread of Life gives us what we so desperately desire, what we so desperately need… we need spiritual sustenance.
Really loving others requires work, it requires effort, dedication, and concentration; it doesn't happen by accident.
