24th Sunday after Pentecost, November 7 & 8, 2015
By Pastor DeWayne Teig
An excerpt from the sermon:
I’d like to take a couple of minutes to briefly describe what is meant by “down, in, and out” as it relates to being a faithful steward.
The first point is to understand how all that we have, all that we are, all that we hope to be, all comes down to us from above. God blesses us with all the good things in life we have received.
Secondly, as we take in those blessings, we respond to God in gratitude, in thanksgiving, in lives of faith active in love. We receive the gifts God has bestowed upon us, and in turn, we take time to recognize all that we have and count our blessings.
As we count our blessings, we are reminded that we are merely stewards of the gifts God has given to us, clay vessels through which God works in this world.
We do well to recognize that what we have doesn’t really belong to us, it is only on loan from God, who wishes for us that we use the gifts that have been entrusted to us in ways that are pleasing to God.
We feed the hungry; we clothe the naked; we offer help and care and compassion to all whom we encounter. The blessings we have received go out from us!
The easy way to remember this all is to recall the cross of Christ. God gifts come down to us and bless us. We in gratitude offer our thanks for all God has given. That attitude of gratitude then goes out in acts of mercy and love for our neighbors and for strangers alike.
