All the Power and the Glory

Today is the start of the 12 days of Christmas and around the world the lowest church attendance.

Greg Armstrong
Was on a trip to the tropics. Rough it out in Palm Springs to help parents shut down the condo. Age and sickness causes us to lose power. Jesus is the Power we need. Less of me more of Jesus.
Power shift to kingdom power.
Let's seek the true power of Jesus. Take time to be still to enjoy God and his Gift.
The poor you will always have with you.
Let's work for restorative justice around the world. First we must repent of our sIns and become less and learn to rest in God's lavish and ridiculous love.
We rejoice in what God has sent. Do we see beyond the story and have a personal relationship.
Jesus loved John the most. He loves me and you the most.
God is with us now. John the Baptist testified about Jesus. Are we willing?
Jesus turns water to high quality wine prepared by the servants. They were the first ones to witness the miracle. Jesus turned things upside down.
After this Jesus went out to baptize and the disciples started to argue.
Then Jesus and his disciples left Jerusalem and went into the Judean countryside. Jesus spent some time with them there, baptizing people. At this time John the Baptist was baptizing at Aenon, near Salim, because there was plenty of water there; and people kept coming to him for baptism. A debate broke out between John's disciples and a certain Jew over ceremonial cleansing. So John's disciples came to him and said, "Rabbi, the man you met on the other side of the Jordan River, the one you identified as the Messiah, is also baptizing people. And everybody is going to him instead of coming to us." John replied, "No one can receive anything unless God gives it from heaven. You yourselves know how plainly I told you, 'I am not the Messiah. I am only here to prepare the way for him.' It is the bridegroom who marries the bride, and the best man is simply glad to stand with him and hear his vows. Therefore, I am filled with joy at his success. He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less.
Communion. Behold who you are become what "I Am"
Proclaim The Lord's death until He comes.
Jesus Jesus Jesus there is something about that name.
