Deacon’s Bench:
Jesus summoned those He wanted for disciples. He calls all of us to follow Him to eternal salvation. Christ offers us a new covenant, better than the one made with Abraham. He comes as our mediator, our creator, and as our God. His Word comes with authority which will never grow obsolete. Through Him we are reconciled of our sins and entrusted with this message for others. His disciples under Jesus’ direction set up the church to summon and direct new disciples under the guidance and protection of the Holy Spirit. Through the Holy Spirit, we can drive out the evil ones, and preach the good news to all the earth. We have God’s promise, can we keep ours?

Deacon’s Bench:
Jesus is always there for us and is able to save anyone who approaches Him with respect and a desire to be saved. He is God and we are only humans in His created world. Therefore, He can control and even reverse any action by humans or the earth. When we worship Jesus, we do not worship a distant God, but one that is present here on earth and available to answer our prayers immediately, if that is what He deems appropriate. We must be faithful and believe that how Christ answers our prayers is the best overall solution for what is best for everyone involved. So often we only think of ourselves when we pray, but the intervention we desire can include others, who are also praying to Him. He considers all those affected by His actions now and in the future. His interventions for us now, may affect changes which we can not imagine. God always does what is best for all in all ways with respect to our free wills.

Deacon’s Bench:
Authority, given by God, is earned by obedience to His commandments. To be able to do things like those that Christ did, requires His authority. Miracles of healing and those of affecting change in nature can only be done by God’s authority. He gave some of that authority to His apostles and to His church. We too received some authority from Christ through the church and His sacraments. Afterall, Baptism removed original sin and brought us into God’s family. Each sacrament brings us closer to Christ. Our obedience to God also brings us gifts of wonder of which we have then the authority to use. God not only shares His love with us but also some of His power as we show Him our loyalty through obedience to His words. Listen to Christ for the good of all.

Deacon’s Bench:
Declare to your friends and family that God is in charge of this world and the next. Declare that He created us, and dwells with us to remind us of His kingdom and why we are here. Tell your children and all who will listen of the great works of God and the promise of eternal life with Him. Jesus Christ found it important enough that He became one like us to inform us of this Good news. He came to tell us what we could never discover on our own. He came to inform us of the eternal God of whom He is one of three persons, with authority over all things, including our immortal being given us at birth. He comes from the realm of the spirit to share His love and concern for our well-being. Thus, we should share this important good news with everyone: “God is real, present, and concerned with each of us and invites us to live forever with Him in Heaven.”

Deacon’s Bench:
Encourage others to join with Jesus Christ to bring back to Him those who have forsaken the living God for more worldly endeavors. It is easy to notice the evil around us and forget the good things the Lord sends our way. We must stay positive in dealing with those who are weak in the faith. These are the ones that Christ wants us to strengthen with confidence that God is always with us. We can do that by encouraging them to use prayer with small and immediate things such as finding lost items, noticing the beauty of nature or kindness to someone in need. The Holy Spirit will give us instant gratification of our prayer. The greater things come as we become more faithful to His presence with us. Treat God as a constant companion who wishes to share in our life and our love.

Deacon’s Bench:
Have mercy on us Lord. You could have become one of the angels, but instead You chose to become a man. A human with all the weaknesses and challenges that face each of us. You did this to show us that You understand what your creatures experience. You became like us that You might be merciful to your children. You showed us not to fear death or the suffering we may have to endure. You freed us from tyrant threats and removed the power of evil and violence. You give us instead the sure hope of salvation and joy of life eternal. You can reverse any evil we may experience and bring us mercy at judgement day. Jesus, You are our friend and our God.
