Sermons from May 2015
Fr. Marc looks at the conversation in John’s Gospel between Jesus and Nicodemus, a religious leader who was interested in following Christ but also afraid of what that decision might cost him. Jesus teaches Nicodemus that he must be born again–a spiritual rebirth–to enter the kingdom of God.
Today’s message begins with an encouraging testimony from a young man named Raj who works in an orphanage in the Andaman Islands, a group of islands southeast India. Fr. Marc then challenges us from Scripture to consider our ‘spiritual itinerary’, where we are going in our relationship with God and in eternity.
Fr. Marc looks at the power that a godly mother can have by looking at the story of Timothy, whose mother and grandmother taught him to believe in Christ. After contrasting that with the story of Jezebel and her sons, he reminds us that a mother’s influence is one of the most important components of life.
Fr. Marc starts off with a brief description of Deism and the early history of the Church, leading up to the story of Philip and the Ethiopian eunuch. He reminds us that we must, like Philip, get up and go in order to do God’s will and bring glory to Him.
