Called and Committed - Before and After
Sometimes stories we have heard before can give us new insights and direction. This is the power of the Bible, sometimes referred to as the "Living Word." God, through his Spirit, makes it alive and dynamic as we can return to it again and again, and have God speak to us through it.
Each year before Easter we turn to the passage of Jesus entering into the city of Jerusalem with a cheering crowd harolding his entry. Interestingly, it says there were people going ahead of him, and there were people following behind. Many times that "ahead of," and "following after," are roles God calls you and I to as we live lives of faith. (Click for Sermon Notes)
