The Lighthouse

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 11:21 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the once again sunny, gorgeous island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Sunday morning, the fifteenth day of July, 2012, a warm day on Cape, as well as the islands of the aforementioned MV and Nantucket, looking forward to a Baptism of my fiancee’s niece, Stephanie, who will bring little “Hailey” home from church for her first cook out on such a glorious day.  I thought I might just wish her and all the little ones out there the BEST, for WE ALL KNOW that the children are OUR future and that it is, as ‘adults’ OUR responsibility to leave them the same as OUR parents left US.  Lachlan Macquarie, governor of New South Wales from 1810-1821, had a way of making everyone feel included in the new colony.  When the “exclusives” (free settlers, civil servants, and military officers) shunned the society of the “emancipists” (transported convicts given conditional or absolute pardon), Governor Macquarie insisted they be treated as social equals.  Jesus showed interest in Zacchaeus, a shunned tax collector in Jericho, and included him in the recipients of His salvation plan (Luke: 19:1-10).  A marginalized and hated man because of his profession, Zacchaeus was desperate to see Jesus and climbed a tree to get a glimpse of Him.  When Jesus passed by, He saw Zacchaeus’ desire and told told him to come down because he had a divine appointment at his house.  Some complained that Jesus was spending too much time with a sinner.  His loving attention changed Zacchaeus’ life.  He repented and offered restitution for those he had defrauded.  Salvation had come to his house.  Jesus’ mission was simple: Diligently search for lost people, whatever their social standing, and offer them God’s salvation plan.  As followers of Christ, we too have that as our mission.  (credit Marvin Williams).   As an addition to this most sacred statement, I would add this prayer as well on this Sunday as I leave you for the moment, “Lord, help us show compassion to a world that’s lost in sin, So when we share to gospel, Hungry souls for Christ we’ll win.” ~Sper PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
