Who We Are

I'm New!

Come As You Are at Liberty United Methodist Church means being in a relaxed atmosphere where you can come casual or decide to wear your Sunday's best; worshipping God with your family, friends, neighbors and guests; being lifted up by songs of praise; being inspired, encouraged and challenged, and enjoying good food and fellowship after a dynamic church service.

 

Come As You Are is an invitation to come without having to "dress up" your life and heart. If you're in a good place in life, we'll rejoice with you. If you come feeling battered by life, we'll hug you and pray with you, especially when you are experiencing life challenges and burdens.

 

After all, Jesus said, "Come to me, all of you who are tired and carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders. I'll give you rest." (Matthew 11:28) This is the Jesus we serve and the one we will introduce to you!

FOOD FOR THOUGHT:  A hen and a pig approached a church and read the advertised sermon topic: “What Can We Do to Help the Poor?”  Immediately the hen suggested they feed them bacon and eggs.  The pig thought for a moment and said, “There is only one thing wrong with feeding bacon and eggs to the poor.  For you it requires only a contribution, but for me it requires total commitment!”  While this may be just a funny little story, it gives us something to think about.  Our Gospel lesson today from Mark 1:16-20 clearly says that when Jesus called Simon, Andrew, James and John for the very first time, they were fishing in the Sea of Galilee as that was their profession.  However, they willingly accepted Jesus’ invitation, left everything and immediately followed Jesus.   Indeed, this kind of action needed a total commitment on their part!  So, in light of today’s Gospel passage, please prayerfully ponder on the following questions?  

Do we believe that God calls everyone?  How do we respond to “God’s daily nudges” or the “God moments” in our lives?  Do we pay attention to them or do we just brush them aside?  What does Jesus seem to be asking of us, or what is Jesus’ invitation to us? Where do we hear this invitation, how, and how are we responding?

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: When Henry Ford purchased a large insurance policy, the Detroit newspapers published the fact, since the amount was so large and he was so

prominent. The story was read by one of Ford's friends, who happened to be in the insurance business. The old friend went to confront Ford to see if the story was true. When Ford assured him that it was, the friend asked him why the policy was not purchased from him, since he was a personal friend and had been in insurance for many years. Ford's reply was, "You never asked me." In our Gospel lesson today from Luke 10:1-12, we see that Jesus sent out His disciples to tell the Good News to all people in the nearby towns. This should give us a sense of ureencv to offer a word of hope, to write a note of encouragement and or share a word about the Lord to those who are hurting, seeking and or going through hard times in their lives. Last week I shared in my message about the BLT approach of spreading the Good News of Jesus through Building relationship with our neighbors and friends; Looking for opportunities to share the Gospel; and Taking people to events to hear the Gospel. If we don't act upon it now, a time may come when it would be too late for us to do it and we may regret it. How many of our friends can say to us, "You never asked me," as to our sharing Christ with them? So, in light of today's Gospel lesson, may we prayerfully look for an opportune time to share the love of Jesus with those around us!
