Be A Blessing

BLESS YOU! We all say it after someone sneezes. Any idea what it is we’re saying? What is a “Blessing”? And why would we wish a blessing on someone else? KCRC’s girls club, known as GEMS (Girls Everywhere Meeting The Saviour), had as their theme this year, “BE A BLESSING”. And what, pray tell, is that??? Join us as we wonder about it, and dig into the meaning of their theme bible verse 2 Corinthians 9:8.

Go ahead and find a bible, either print version or online or app. Flip to 2 Corinthians 9:8. Then download the podcast and join the conversation.

Be A Blessing

As always, feel free to pass this stuff around.  You can also find this, and other messages online at the KCRC website under the tab “Sermons And Stuff.”

We’d also love to have you join us live for worship.
We gather each Sunday at 10am.
Don’t worry about getting all gussied up.  Just come as you are – we’re a church full of imperfect people.
And we’d be glad to have other imperfect people, like you, along for the ride!

Who Am I? Victorious!

Life is a battle.
Who among us has not muttered that under our breath at one time or another?
We’ve said it, and felt it. And it’s true.
Life IS a battle. But not a battle we need fear. Those who have committed their lives to Jesus, following and trusting him can rest in the assurance that they will win. |
In the end, they will be VICTORIOUS!!
So, that raises some questions – like, “Who is the enemy?” “Are there strategies we need to follow in order to find that victory?” “Do we get spiritual gear and armor to fight the battle?”
And that all is the focus of this, the last of our winter teaching series here at KCRC, “Who Am I?”.
We’re going to dig into Ephesians 6:10-24 helps us understand that.
Who Am I? Victorious!

Who Am I? Suffering!

“Dear God, she is such a good person.
She’s such a good person.
Why does she have to suffer so much?
IT’S NOT FAIR!!”

Ever found yourself saying or praying something like that?
Most of us probably have, somewhere along the way.
Suffering – it’s something that sticks in our throat.
We can’t accept it as normal or right.
We fight against it.
And that’s a good thing to do.
But – the reality is, suffering is all around us. None of us make it through life without some experience of suffering.
In fact, those who ground their spiritual identity in Jesus ought to EXPECT suffering to be part of the deal.
It simply is.
Ephesians 3:1-13 helps us understand that.
The message from March 31 explores how suffering fits into our lives, and how we can keep (or lose) focus in the middle of battling suffering.

Join us as we explore this difficult teaching.

On Task: Noticing

“Never even saw you!”

So I had to admit after someone nudged me in the grocery store aisle, wondering why I wasn’t saying “Hi.”
Honest – I had blanked right out, totally focused on my search for….. well, can’t even remember the product I wanted at the time.  Whatever-it-wuz seemed so important at the time that everything else was just a blur.

Ever done that?

I wonder if we do that, spiritually?  We get so busy with our own lives, and even our own collective church life that everything else around us blurs out.  The broader community is just fuzz on the screen, so to speak.

Jesus paid enough attention to notice people – like see beyond their exteriors to their inner lives: their joys, their struggles, their needs, their desires.  And he responded accordingly.

What would things be like if we, as Church of Jesus, would make the effort to notice those around us, and seek to connect with them on that real level?

That’s the question for this past Sunday’s sermon at Kemptville Christian Reformed Church.
Part three in our series On Task, where we are examining the core mandate of the Church – why we exist.
