Sermon title: From the Beginning to the End 

Scripture text: John 6:56-69

 

Sermon excerpt: 

Home is where you have abided, in good times and bad. It is where you have remained steadfastly, a place that felt secure, perhaps even a sanctuary from the rest of the world.

“Home is [or should be] the promise of safety, of security; a place where fear does not have the upper hand.”1

When Jesus says, "Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood abide in me, and I in them,” he is inviting the disciples (and us) to be at home in him, just as he is at home in God.
