March 7, 2021 Sermon: Return from the Wilderness – Gluttony

My friends, today God calls to us to return from the wilderness of the sin of gluttony, of worthless living, of purposeless living and actions and speech.  God calls us to return to living the way of purpose God places before us, the way that is best, given and directed by the One who made us and KNOWS what is best.

Interruptions

I started the sermon by talking about the character Dug from the animated movie “Up”. And Dug had this way of stopping the important stuff to chase after squirrels. I’ll bet there are some Christians out there, maybe even in HERE, who think of taking the time and effort to share love with and be present with the seemingly most unworthy people is akin to chasing after squirrels. But in my reading of the scriptures, in my reading of the life and ministry of Jesus, it’s pretty much everything ELSE that is akin to chasing after squirrels. It’s pretty much everything ELSE that comprises the interruptions.
