The Samaritans are often portrayed as being a group of ethnically and religiously mixed people at the time Christ lived.  While their origin is debated among scholars, history reveals they considered themselves "Keepers of the Torah."   The animosity between first century Jews and Samaritans was greatly linked to the place of worship.  When Jesus' kindness opens the door for a conversation with a seemingly out-casted Samaritan woman it leads to an apparent conversion of many in her village.  But the event also provides an occasion for a shift in how Godly worship is perceived.  Our worship is spiritually centered not physically oriented because Jesus transforms how worship is done.

The idea of zombies is a current fad in entertainment.  But did Jesus ever encounter the walking dead?  Mark tells the story of Jesus' encounter with a demon-possessed man.  He lived a life in darkness living in a culture which did not know God while being possessed by demons.  The community rejected the man, but not Jesus.  Christians today can easily dismiss many in the World.  But we need to be careful to practice Jesus' mercy.

Jesus served those who made others in the Jewish community uncomfortable.  One example is the Canaanite woman whose daughter was demon-possessed.  Even though His focused mission was proclaiming the Kingdom of Heaven to Israel, Jesus was moved to act by this woman's faith.  Christians today need to be willing to serve others even when they are outside our comfort zone.

In the midst of this royal city Jesus teaches His disciples about true leadership.  He serves from compassion.  As Christians today, we should have the same attitude in serving others.

Do we honor the memorial?  We celebrate Memorial Day tomorrow, yet do we ever fail to stop to remember our fallen soldiers?  In the same way, do we ever forget the significance of the Lord's Supper as a time of reflection and remembering Jesus?  Paul warned the Corinthians because not only were they failing to remember Jesus; they were making a mockery of the Lord's Supper.  Christians today need to avoid the same type of dangers which Paul warned the Corinthians against.

This very special sermon was delivered during our inaugural worship assembly.  We recall God's mission as the basis for our mission as a church with consideration of what this means for individual Christians.  We want to understand what is our purpose in planting a congregation in Benbrook, Texas.
