Sunday's lesson and links

In my children's sermon Sunday, I told about Jesus praying in the garden.

"Jesus didn't want to go to the cross and yet, He did want to go. He didn't want to go through the torment of Crucifixion, but because we needed Him to provide a way of salvation, His wanted to die for us.

This is a perfect example of manhood.

A real man stands up for what is right, like Jesus did when He drove the moneychangers out of the temple. This act was part of why the Pharisees wanted kill Him. He knew it would anger them, but He stood for Right anyway.

A real man takes the initiative to meet the needs of those under his care. We needed salvation and Jesus provided it. a hubby needs to provide for his wife and children and those that God puts under his care, whether employees or part of his ministry or his neighbor. It doesn't matter if he "feels" like it or not. Jesus didn't "feel" like being crucified. But He chose it for our sakes.

Women who claim to be Christians need to be like Jesus too. After all, that is what the word "Christian" means; Follower of Christ, or One Who is Like Christ."

You are NOT  a Christian if you do not follow Christ, by the definition of the word.

The farmer doesn't dwell on the work of planting or weeding. He dwells on the harvest

Thank you so much for commenting! I love to talk to my readers.

I do ask that there be no anonymous commenters, though. If I am brave enough to put my name on this blog, you should be too:-)

Please keep it civil. Remember we are all human and make mistakes, and that since we can't see each other's faces or hear each other's tone of voice, it is very hard to get the emotion in what we are saying each other. Use lots of emoticons! :-) And show grace and love to each other.
