We serve the Houston community and beyond in spreading the Good News and love of Christ by serving others and examining and living by the Word with faith, hope, love and enthusiasm.
The rich man who comes to ask Jesus what he should do to inherit eternal life is a good man, sincere in his asking. Mark's gospel is alone in saying that Jesus looked on him and loved him. Out of love, not as judgment, Jesus offers him an open door to life: sell all you own and give it to the poor. Our culture bombards us with the message that we will find life by consuming. Our assemblies counter this message with the invitation to find life by divesting for the sake of the other.
Prayer of the Day
Almighty and ever-living God,increase in us your gift of faith, that,
we may follow the way of your commandments
and receive the crown of everlasting joy,
through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.
