5Th Sunday of Lent! Fr Leo, Sermon from John Chapt…Read More
“I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly.” These are the amazing words Jesus promised to each of us, the promise of an abundant life. God's Word teaches us in 1 John 5:4 - “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.” With all of this life's challenges, as born again Christians, a faith community life is essential in fostering spiritual growth, with life’s ups and downs, joys, and sorrows, our Christian community is designed to keep us conscious of God’s abiding presence in our lives. As we remain dedicated to reminding each other of the tremendous blessings, we have received from above.
It says in Isaiah 54:5 - “For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.” Our Christian community is designed to be a place that fosters and encourages one another on our journey of faith to experience intimately our maker and husband, pointing to the sacrifice of the Cross. Hence we are a community of believers driven by the incredible love that Christ demonstrated by His sacrificial love for each of us, and learning to serve each, other whereby opening the door to a deeply abundant life in Jesus.
The vision of the Community of the Crucified one is simple; compelling us to go into the highways and byways of life and tell all who will listen that Jesus loves them. When they ask, "How do you know?" we point them to the cross and say, "Because He died for you."
