People’s Choice Hymn: #719 – Where Cross the Crowded Ways of Life

In Worship: Our theme this Sunday is “Great Questions about Jesus: Does Jesus Still Heal?” What is the first thing that comes to mind when we talk about healing? Is it physical healing? Spiritual healing? Healing within relationships? It is clear in the Bible that Jesus healed more than just physical ailments but also spiritual, mental and relational ailments. Today we will be encouraged to look at our own lives and where we need healing.

GOD CHANGES HEARTS

The account of Zacchaeus found in Luke 19 makes it obvious that he lived for himself and his money. He was wealthy and sought to become wealthier. All that changed with Zacchaeus’ first encounter with Jesus when he responded to Jesus’ call to follow him. Because of his conversion, Zacchaeus’ perspective on his material possessions changed. His money and possessions were no longer the center of his attention. Now his thoughts centered on pleasing God instead of himself, and his new devotion and love for Jesus prompted him to give generously.

Prayer: Father, I confess that I don’t always love you with my whole heart and soul and mind. I rest in your mercy shown to me by your Son through the cross. Lord, as you changed Zacchaeus’ heart, change my heart. Please grant me a heart that wants to share freely and generously with those in need. In Christ’s name I pray. Amen.

Blessings on your stewardship journey!

See you in worship!

Peace,

Pastor Dave
