Old Testament Lesson

One of the enduring messages of Song of Song is the fact that we are made for love.  We are created by God to be loved and to love others.  Song of Songs talk about the great love between to people.  We were created by God for love. We were created to love God and love our neighbor.  And, we were created by God to be loved by God and be loved by our neighbor.  

And so in life, we must learn to love each other. And we must learn to allow others to love us.  May we take time each day to love. And may we take time each day to allow others to love us.  

New Testament Lesson

The great lesson of Revelation is this:  God Wins!  God will be faithful to His people, He will bring forth victory for His church and His people.  There will come that time when there is no more sickness, pain, and death, and we will see the complete glory of God!  

Gospel Lesson

We see Jesus send the 70 out.  He did not make the people come to them, He sent them out. That is a lesson to us.  Let us go to others.  Let us go to those that are in need.  Those that are hurting.  Those that are in need of grace.  Let us not wait until they come to us, let us not wait until they come to our church.  For, if we wait until they come to us, they may never come. 

But, instead, let us take the good news of God's love and mercy to all that are in need of hearing it!
