We are all on a hunt. Just like the photo… the flea market I hunt in. Christ is revealed in the world. Christ will pop up in unexpected places and in unexpected ways. Sort of like the treasures I find at the flea market… but a little different.
This sermon reflects on the many states of water. The text from Matthew 3 tells us about Jesus’ Baptism. Jesus was immersed in these baptismal waters. We will still find Christ in our baptismal waters.
Preaching text- John:1-18
The three images below were used as slides during the sermon. The slides show us three science fiction movies that predicted the future wrong. Admittedly, “Back to the Future” was accurate in some of its predictions but it got the hoverboard thing wrong. I still want a hoverboard as shown in the centre image.
So why all this talk about predicting the future on screen? The 1st chapter of the Gospel of John actually transcends time. We are able to see that the gifts that God’s only son gives the world are eternal.
