West End United Methodist Church

Confess, Trust, and Serve

Speakers:Carol Cavin-Dillon
Topics:Lent, Sunday service

This is the third Sunday in Lent, and our theme for Lent is “I Will: Living Our Baptismal Vows.”  Today’s reading is Luke’s account of Zacchaeus, the short tax collector who, as a tax collector, had gotten rich off the backs of his fellow Jews.  He wanted to catch a glimpse of this Jesus and climbed a tree to be able to see.  But Jesus called him down and befriended him, and, as a result, Zacchaeus changed his outlook and direction.  It is an illustration of what it is to be befriended by Jesus and, in response, to confess Jesus as Lord, put our trust in him, and serve him, which is the third of our baptismal vows.  (NOTE: The video begins with the Children’s Moment, but once it starts you can scroll back to the beginning of the service if you want.  The entire service is videoed.)
