From Father Andrew Bahhi: New Year, New Life

New Year’s is an opportunity to ask God for forgiveness and take all the iniquity and sins, and make this the year of the blessing, healing, peace and reconciliation, and the year for each one of us to walk with God and accept God as savior for his/her life. Another year from your life will pass, but you still have another opportunity for years to come to be with Him, walk with Him, and be according to His heart. It is not easy to be faithful, Galatians says one of the fruits......

From Father Andrew Bahhi: Make Christmas 2018 Your Turning Point

Merry Christmas. Like the angel who came to the shepherds and declared upon the birth of Jesus “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.” (Luke 2:14) After that, a multitude of angels came to tell the good news of the savior. This feast is a feast of the most important event to happen on this earth. Since Adam and Eve left paradise, God said the seed of the women would come and crush the hate of the serpent. God then chose a very special woman,......

From Father Andrew Bahhi: The Revelation of Joseph is a Lesson

I ask our heavenly father to be with you and open our hearts as Joseph did so Jesus could become our savior. But when we talk about the revelation of Joseph, we speak about a righteous man. The Bible does not speak about him a lot, nor does the Bible record any single words attributable to him. But at the same time, he played an important role in the journey of Jesus Christ. This sermon I direct towards men. After he found that Mary was pregnant, Joseph began to see the change......

From Father Andrew Bahhi: Experiencing the Joy from God

Today, we are celebrating the visitation of the Virgin Mary to her relative Elizabeth. Last Sunday, we spoke of the Annunciation of the Virgin Mary, when we spoke about the good news of the son who will deliver salvation for the whole world. In her age, Elizabeth was old, but she is holding a 6-month old baby, and at that time Mary arose in great haste to deliver the joyous news. She was running. And if we want to talk about the joy, we should seek a lot of things in our......

From Father Andrew Bahhi: The Annunciation of the Virgin Mary

I ask Jesus to be with us and in our heart and among us this morning. This Sunday is the 4th Sunday of the church calendar, where we celebrate the Annunciation of the Virgin Mary. We usually celebrate this on March 25, 9th months before Christmas. We also read this now before Christmas for our spiritual journey as preparation for Christmas. When we talk of the Annunciation of the Virgin Mary, we talk of the good news sent from heaven by the angel Gabriel to share the good news with humans, by......

From Father Andrew Bahhi: Waiting Patiently on the Lord

A lot of time we talk about God and people think he is up in heaven and we are here on earth. And we don’t know if he hears us, especially for those things we really need dearly in our life. Then we feel there is a distance between us and him, and slowly our spiritual feeling becomes harsh, and we don’t feel his presence anymore. But remember — The Bible says he is always with us, and he said he will be with us all the days of our life and......

From Father Andrew Bahhi: The Renewal of the Church

This Sunday, which is the second Sunday in our Liturgical calendar, we call The Renewal of The Church. Last Sunday was the consecration of the Church. This is not about the physical church. A lot of times in our life, we try to have everything while forgetting to renew our relationship with God. But we never know when our life will be done. We need to renew our spirit in the same way we renovate our homes. In order to renew our homes, we have to do several things: Destroy the old......

From Father Andrew Bahhi: Releasing Ourselves from Anger

The Bible calls Jesus the Prince of Peace, the King of the Peace in this world. The opposite of peace is anger. If we have anger in our heart toward each other, the Bible encourages us to have peace in our heart, Jesus in our heart, and you will see Jesus come into your life. Jesus reminds us that the Old Testament says you shall not murder, but Jesus also equates anger with murder. In the New Testament he says, whoever is angry with his brother is in danger of judgement. According......

From Father Andrew Bahhi: Living Life as a Faithful Servant

We thank God always because his mercy is upon us and he made us in his image and likeness – he made us very unique. He made us like Him. If we remember we are in the image of our God, whatever we do we will do differently. If anybody is faithful, he will always try to do the best for that person, make them happy and make the best thing ever. That is our way with God. As Jesus tells the disciples in Luke 16:10, “He who is faithful in what......

From Father Andrew Bahhi: Love God Like a Child

When I look to the cross, I see Jesus not only was crucified for us, but he is telling us his heart, his bosom us open for us. For every and each one of us. The only thing we need is to believe in him, run to him and receive his blessing. Especially the parents among us, when you come back from a long day of work or travel, and you come back home. When your children run to you, that is the most noble thing. The same thing for your heavenly......
