Foretastes of the Kingdom: Are You the One?

Luke 7: 18-24

This was an intriguing topic for a sermon on Anniversary Sunday at St. Andrew’s.  John the Baptist was a fiery preacher imprisoned by Herod.  He sent disciples to ask Jesus:  ‘Are you the Messiah?’  They didn’t know - would the Messiah be a warrior, a leader...?  How would they know?How would we know?  If Jesus is the Messiah then we see God at work.  Is this the Good News or should we continue to look elsewhere? Rev. Dimock invited us to think of good news as an event and ask ourselves what do we see?  There has been so much Good News, and so many amazing events and things to see this year.  We celebrated Canada Day, Canada’s 150 Birthday, Reformation 500 and St. Andrew’s Church Ottawa’ s Anniversary Sunday.  I read a quote that we should live each day as a life.  What events would I see today in this life?  Anniversary Sunday, Open Table, welcoming new members to St. Andrew’s.    If we look, we see God at work each day.
