The Dream (MLK Tribute)

We gathered at Ormond Church to honor a man who believed all mankind has been created equally in the Image of God and therefore all mankind shares an inherent value regardless of race, gender, or wealth. Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. learned from Jesus how to inspire peace and unity in the hearts of men, and like Jesus, was put to death for it. Today we honor them both in our message; “The Dream.”

The Righteous & The Wicked

In Scripture, Our Father informs us of many observable actions which reveal who the righteous and the unrighteous are. A common theme we witness in scripture is the difference between how the righteous vs the unrighteous treat the poor. This difference will surprise both the seasoned Christian and the new believer!

Change Your Label

In a world of labels being used to divide us, Black & White, Male & Female, Republican & Democrat, Protestant & Catholic…. we have one label that matters above all others, one that is used to unify us; Christian.

“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus” – Galatians 3:28 ESV

In a culture becoming increasingly divisive, Christian culture ought to be increasingly inclusive; welcoming all people from all races, professions, political affiliations, sexes, sexual orientations, and religions to come and experience the love of Jesus. When Christ becomes our identity, we can break through barriers and stand up for justice for all people.

CONFIRMYOURELECTION

Confirm Your Election

St. Peter said one ought to be “diligent to confirm your calling and election.” The Apostle Paul said one ought to “examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith.” Being willing to “examine” ones actions and “confirm” ones salvation is a monumental step towards spiritual maturity. For if one is found to be lacking in an area, they now have the opportunity to address their weaknesses and overcome them by the help of the Holy Spirit. Together we’ll discover how to “self review” your faith and how to take steps towards spiritual maturity.

Mercy

The Good Samaritan is more than a good story, Jesus used it to explain how to “love thy neighbor as thyself.” If we deviate from Jesus definition of what “love thy neighbor” looks like and redefine it as simply handshakes and smiles in public, others will suffer at the hands of evil. We are called to be Good Samaritans, we are called to be bringers of Justice and Mercy, this is how we fulfill the command to love our neighbors!

Harvest

“Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” – Matthew 9:35-38
