    by Dion Frasier

    One could argue that the enormity of our “to-do lists” and the busyness of life has greatly increased the velocity of our daily lives. Accordingly, we are living life so fast that we are in danger of missing the important things in life. In this sermon, we will be encouraged to slow down so that we can “recover our lives”. Today, we will be challenged to unsubscribe from hurry.

    Many of us are haunted by our pasts. We have done some horrible things. We have failed to do some good things. We experience the heartache of missed opportunities. During the season of Lent, we are encouraged to unsubscribe from allowing the past to be the prime mover in our lives. The blood of Jesus washes us clean and launches us into to newness of life.

    In a few days, the season of Lent will commence. Lent is a shortened form of the English word “Lenten” which means “spring”. Accordingly, this time represents an entering into a new season. During this new season, we enter a period where we abstain from things (fast) and we introduce new practices (discipline). Someone described Lent as

    “a season of preparation, self-reflection and repentance when we seek to literally ‘turn around’ and realign our lives and focus toward God. It is a time to give up things as well as take on new life-giving practices, helping us rid ourselves of distractions and our own selfish desires. By doing so, we seek to live and love as more faithful disciples of Jesus Christ.”

    This morning, we prepare for the fast by discussing the ever-growing list of that creates clutter, confuse, and challenge our journey with God. We will zero in on the need to “unsubscribe” from things that get in the way. Our journey is one that we pray will lead to freedom.

    In case you hadn't noticed, the American political climate is a raging dumpster fire on social media. When was the last time someone actually changed their mind because of a Twitter rage, or a Facebook tirade?

    Are the words of Jesus to "do to others as you would have them do to you" needed now more among Christians in our current climate?

  • Disappointment with God

    Where Is God When It Hurts

    Sunday, February 17th, 2019

    by David Pace

    Why do bad things happen to good people? Why does God allow his children (whom he claims to love) to suffer when he could remove their suffering? Where is God when it hurts?

    How do you deal with being disappointed with God? Is it wrong to be disappointed with God?

    When Jesus read from Isaiah's prophecy in the synagogue, he pronounced his mission, vision and purpose. The life Jesus lived flowed out of commitment to the mission, vision and purpose that God placed in his life. Likewise, as Jesus' disciples, we will find fulfillment when we live into the mission, vision and purpose that God has revealed to us.

    The mission of God through the Reynoldsburg church will take the intentional participation of all of its members. God has blessed this church with gifts, talents, interests and passions. It is in this spiritual atmosphere that God's glory shines brilliantly in our world and community.

    The baptism of the Lord is a fascinating event. As the spotless lamb of God, he didn't need to be washed of his sins. So why was he baptized? The baptism of the Lord affords us an opportunity to learn more about the importance of our own baptisms and the privilege to offer the blessing of baptism to others.

    The "Light" is a gift given by God for his people to live in among the blinding darkness of the world. In this light, we are given a directive to "arise" or "get up". Rescued out of darkness, we are able to see that God's glory and grace has been made available to everyone. As we reflect on that tremendous blessing, we will review and forecast the place of the Reynoldsburg Church of Christ in God's mission to rescue humankind out of darkness.

    God's love for us has been demonstrated in the most powerful way when the messiah, who was promised long ago, gave his life as an offering for those he loves.

    It would be cute if the story of Christ was only about a crib. But the truth is that it involved a cross.

    It would be cute if the story of Christ was only about a mother soothing her child. But the truth is that later, a crying mother would be soothed by the words of comfort spoken by her son as he hung on a cross.

    It would be cute if the story of Christ was only about a host of angels singing hymns from heaven. But the truth is that later, those same angels watched in horror as the son of God breathed his last.

    The story of crib to cross is... the Christmas Gospel.

    It is a unique and valuable gift to emanate peace. When you are around a person of peace, it has a profound impact. When chaos strikes, they speak comfort in a way that is meaningful and deep.

    Are you one of those people?

    Optimism and hope are radically different attitudes.

    • Optimism is the expectation that things -- the weather, human relationships, the economy, the political situation, on so on -- will get better
    • Hope is trust that God will fulfill God's promises to us in a way that leads to true freedom

    The optimist speaks about concrete changes in the future. The person of hope lives in the moment with the knowledge and trust that all of life is in good hands.

    Our participation in this Eucharist is a time to reflect on many things:

    • our spiritual communion with the triune God
    • our reception of the grace of God
    • our hope and joy because of a returning Lord
    • our unity in the Body of Christ
    • our gratitude for all we have to be thankful for
    • our invitation to partner with God in his mission
    • how incredible it would be if more people were with us at this table

    Let's proclaim together the Lord's death until he comes.

    Offering our contribution isn't separate and apart from the Eucharist, it is an important extension of the communion. By extension, as we receive, we also give.

    As Christ followers, we have a lot to celebrate:

    • We were rescued by the body and blood of Jesus
    • We were liberated from the chains of sin
    • We now enjoy new life in God because of the body and blood of Jesus
    • We now enjoy a unified life with God and other followers of Jesus

    In the Eucharist, we are giving thanks to God for freeing us to live in communion with God and one another.
