Sermon: Choosing the Light
Theme: We choose to listen to God’s direction and gifts rather than return to our need for control or comfort.
Purpose: The congregation will renew their commitment to listening to God’s call upon their lives.
Scriptures: Ephesians 5:8-14 Be people of the light, take no part in the works of darkness.
John 9:1-41 Jesus heals a man born blind, the conflict with the Pharisees who cannot accept the healing.
What is blinding us from seeing the possibilities of God’s presence and power in the world around us? In what ways do we miss God’s grace and power because of our perceptions and judgments? How do we release our need for control and our false over confidence in order to see God’s movement in the world around us? What do we need to do in order to be part of God’s light coming into the world, rather than to be locked in our own limited points of view?
