Sermons from October 2014
In part 3 of the series, Fr. Marc reminds us that God blesses us so that we can be a blessing to others. We are commanded to share what God gives us with those in need, following the words of Jesus, “freely you have received, freely give.”
Father Mark challenges us to walk in faith, trust, and obedience. These are keys to cultivating abundance in our lives. He compares this to a farmer cultivating a field for harvest. We need to till and fertilize the soil of our hearts to prepare for the Lord. God has a harvest waiting, but we need to overcome our fears and do the work of the harvest, putting the Lord first.
As he begins a series on stewardship, Fr. Marc encourages us to develop a Christian work ethic. Quoting Colossians, he reminds us that we should do everything with all our heart, as if we were working for and serving the Lord Himself. Having a right attitude about our work can also bring a renewed sense of joy and fulfillment to our lives.
