Deacon’s Bench:
Set a good example for the believers by attending to grace and opportunities that the Holy Spirit leads you. Be diligent in the faith and continue to study the life of Christ and His saints. Never ignore those who need you and continue praying and teaching any who come to you. Always be forgiving and welcoming to those who need love. Christ came to save sinners and those are the ones we should never neglect. Christ taught that it is important to find the lost ones and return them to the Lord. We can pray and work for their return every day.

Deacon’s Bench:
Christ suffered not because of the Father but rather to give us His true love as a human being. As God, He did not need to die or suffer or rise from the dead because, He could do all things. But as a human to show us His perfect love and His example to follow, He had to demonstrate that love by His life, death, and resurrection. As a human, Jesus Christ, experienced; not the favored life of the fortunate, but the life of those who were poor and unfortunate. He suffered sickness, weakness, and abuse as many of that day had. He truly understands our situation, whatever it may be. Christ already knew us, but He did all this to communicate the situation and His message of love at our level.

Deacon’s Bench:
The will of God is that everyone be saved, especially people in authority, that we may lead tranquil lives in devotion and dignity. This is the message of Christ and should be given to all people. Prayers should be said for everyone, especially those who may be spreading grief throughout the world. Especially talk to God through prayer to bless your enemies as well as your friends. Only God can give true authority over man and earth. His authority can allow us to make miraculous things occur. His authority is given to those who follow His commands.

Deacon’s Bench:
Christ spent the night at a private place in prayer with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Afterwards, He gathered and chose His twelve apostles. Then, as people gathered to hear Him speak, great power flowed from Him, and He healed all those who were in need. All humans are now connected, linked through their common origin and thus because of Christ’s human participation, we are also now a part of His family as well. Jesus did us a great favor through His life, death, and resurrection giving us an inheritance of eternal life. We can not praise and thank Him enough for these wonders which we could never achieve on our own.

Deacon’s Bench:
Never cease praying to God, Mary the Mother of God, and the saints. Praying is communicating with God and those with Him. We want to know those who have succeeded in gaining eternal joy. By praying every day, we can get to know Christ and those in heaven. We can learn from them and become the person God wants us to be. Prayers are never one way. We may think we are doing all of the talking but those in the spirit communicate directly to the soul. We can be influenced by their spirit through thought and emotion. Often times the Spirit gives us feelings and inspirations to guide us. Pray always and the Spirit will give you a genuine joy, a small part of heaven.

Proclaim the Good news of Christ to everyone you meet. The news that Christ reconciled us to God by His crucifixion and death on a cross. He corrected the wrongs done by our ancestors and opened the gates of heaven for us. We have no way to enter heaven without the help of Christ and He is willing to help. He has saved many souls since His resurrection from the dead and is present for us today. His rules are those of ours. Love God and love your neighbor as yourself. We know how to get there and to help us He has given us the church. Depend on the good people around you and Christ will work through them.

Deacon’s Bench:
Authority with power is given by God. Jesus spoke with authority when teaching the Jewish people. When presented with a sick or demonized person, He would say come out or be healed and it happened accordingly. When He commanded the weather, the sea or even the fig tree it responded obediently. Jesus spoke with authority and that is why we can trust His advice on how to live and receive eternal life. He is God; He is our judge. By experience we know that He will be fair and merciful. He shares with us the authority, knowledge, and grace needed to gain eternal life. Let us wisely listen to Him and His church.

Deacon’s Bench:
Jesus Christ died to open the gates of heaven to all God’s people. Those who have gone before us are not hopeless or left out from the things we enjoy, but rather are alive in the Lord. Our ties developed here on earth are not broken at death; instead, they are strengthened in the spirit. Our loved ones are connected in spirit and are in constant relationship with us. They are our best intercessors with the Lord for they can reach Him in spirit without the distractions of human life. The life of the spirit dwells around us like the air. We are in constant contact with the spirit and can converse with the Lord, the angels, the saints, and any of those who have passed to eternal life with Jesus. We should consider this in all that we do. We are not alone.

Deacon’s Bench:
The Lord is the avenger of all things evil. We should never take advantage of and/or exploit another for lust or greed. God has called us to holiness and goodness, not impurity and selfishness. We must be ready to answer to the Lord at any hour. He may call us when we least expect and if we are found prepared for judgement we will do well. God knows our lives, our talents, and our challenges and the Holy Spirit is always there and willing to give us whatever grace we need. He will give us opportunities to showcase our love for Him and our neighbor. We just need to be ready to succeed.

Deacon’s Bench:
Always be ready to meet Jesus. Not just in death but in things that we might do for our neighbor. Christ may come to us at any time and in anyone; just to see how we are doing. We must be consistent with our love of God and neighbor because Christ might be there to visit us. Do not slack off and miss an opportunity to serve the Lord and spread His kingdom. Christ can be present in anyone we meet or talk about. We should not mistreat any one for we do not know the opportunities Christ gives us to demonstrate our services to Him. Sometimes we find later that it was Christ whom we gave assistance out of love. We do not want to miss out.

Deacon’s Bench:
Day and night we must preach the word of God. We can preach through what we say and by what we do. Whoever can live by the word of Christ is truly a follower of Christ. Many people appear to be righteous and beautiful on the outside but are filled with hypocrisy and evil. They fill their lives with the goods that others have struggled to produce without proper recompense. God will even the score in the next life. Every person will be rewarded according to his or her due. God is just but also merciful toward all. Eternity is a long time.

Deacon’s Bench:
Many say that Jesus Christ is Lord, but do they put Him first in their life. It is so easy to let the worries of this life take charge of how we live. The importance of friends, jobs, influence, and possessions often take priority over doing the work of Christ. It is easy to skip good works and prayers because the Lord will rarely remind us. But if we have built up a habit of prayer and putting God first, then we will remind ourselves. A good prayer time each day will allow the Lord to lead us in His ways. Even Jesus Christ, the Son of God, separated Himself from distractions to talk to the other persons of God. Jesus needed prayer; we most definitely need it.
