This is the sermon I preached last Sunday, 1/15 at St. Timothy and St. Mark Lutheran Churches. The text was John 1:29-42.
God delights in taking little things and doing something wonderful through them. In this New Year, 2017, our identities are bound to be shaped by someone and something. Shouldn't we allow our lives to be shaped by God's Son, the Messiah who is here in our midst? Jesus is a home, a place to belong and a whole way of life. Let's notice him, share this good news with others and invite them into a new life of God's grace in Christ.
