“Do you know oh Christian
You’re a sermon in shoes?
Jesus counts upon you
To spread the gospel news!
So walk it and talk it
A sermon in shoes!”
The words quoted above are from the song “A Sermon in Shoes” by Ruth Harms Calkin. They fit perfectly with the message that our beloved Reverend Harry Johns III shared in his sermon this morning (January 17, 2021) titled “Baptism Into the Name of the Triune God”.
This sermon was about the duty that begins when we are baptized. As baptized Christians, we are to live in such a way that others find the Christian life inviting. This is done, in large part, by living our day-to-day lives in obedience to the commands that our loving, awesome God has given us – namely, to have a heartfelt desire to see fellow mankind enjoy the tremendous blessings, and the wonderful life, that comes from being a Christian. Through this desire – this genuine love – we are to reach out to others, to help them find, then grow in, God’s beautiful love and light. What a divine duty is ours!
We are currently experiencing difficulties in posting this sermon to our YouTube channel and website. It may take up to a week to get it posted. There is also a possibility that we won’t be to post it at all. We sincerely apologize for this. If we can get it posted, we will share the link here on our Facebook page as well as our website.
On the bright side, there are several other sermons on our YouTube channel that are available to enjoy at this link https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCkjsAeH9NRfG1urk1rBExxw. We hope that you will find one (or more!) to watch this week until this issue is resolved.
We wish you a most beautiful Sabbath evening and amazing week ahead!
