Everyone is Welcome!
Third Appearance Celebration Introduction:
“Follow me!” The command in the statement is clear. But will we? Can we? Jesus appears to His apostles for a third time after His death. Follow me is quite familiar. We heard this earlier when Jesus gathered His apostles to teach them as He did His Father’s work. Now Jesus beckons them once more to be more complete in the work He taught them.
In Acts, Luke tells us about Saul. Up to this point Saul is a very bad man. When Saul hears Jesus speaking to him, Saul turns his life around and becomes Christian. Ananias will be the spokesman that will turn Saul into Paul. Wonders in the world occur when Jesus speaks.
Our Thanksgiving psalm applies to individual healing and the dedication of a home. We see the Lord’s life giving powers as we journey to wellness in body, mind and soul. We see the Lord looks after us with shelter and comfort even in life’s storms.
In Revelations, John summons us to be loyal to our Triune God.
If Jesus appears to us and says, “Follow Me!” what will we do? Follow and Lead!
Third Appearance Celebration Scripture:
The Lord said to him in a vision, “Ananias.” He answered, “Here I am, Lord.” Acts 9:10.
Hear, O LORD, and be gracious to me! O LORD, be my helper!” Ps. 30:10.
“To the one seated on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!” Rev. 5:13.
When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on some clothes, for he was naked, and jumped into the sea. John 21:7.
Mighty Lord God,
in whom we know the power of redemption,
you stand among us in the shadows of our time.
As we move through every sorrow and trial of this life,
uphold us with knowledge of the final morning
when, in the glorious presence of your risen Son,
we will share in his resurrection,
redeemed and restored to the fullness of life
and forever freed to be your people. Amen.
All the Ends of the Earth
performed by St Louis Jesuits
All the ends of the earth, sing a joyful song.
Sing to the Lord, there is salvation.
O God, your Son remained with his disciples after his resurrection,
teaching them to love all people as neighbors.
As his disciples in this age,
we offer our prayers on behalf of the universe
in which we are privileged to live
and our neighbors with whom we share it.
Open our hearts to your power moving
around us and between us and within us,
until your glory is revealed in our love of both friend and enemy,
in communities transformed by justice and compassion,
and in the healing of all that is broken. Amen.
Will You Come and Follow Me If I But Call Your Name?
God of victory over death,
your Son revealed himself again and again,
and convinced his followers of his glorious resurrection.
Grant that we may know his risen presence,
in love obediently feed his sheep,
and care for the lambs of his flock,
until we join the hosts of heaven in worshiping you and praising him
who is worthy of blessing and honor,
glory and power, for ever and ever. Amen.
We are all stewards spreading the Word of Jesus’ blessings for His people.
