Sermon: “Being Christ’s People”
Theme: We are called to walk as Jesus’ presence in places where “sin” dominates so that we can be a source of hope and healing reaching out as Jesus’ call to wholeness.
Purpose: We will build on our identity of being living sings of Jesus’ healing love.
Scriptures: Romans 6:12-23 Slaves to sin or instruments of righteousness depending on who we allow control.
Matthew 10:40-42 God’s reward is to those who will receive the message and practice kindness.
What do we mean when we are talking about “sin?” What is a healthy way in which we can perceive our failings and weaknesses? What does it mean that we are under grace? How does being under grace free us from focusing on our faults and failures? Does it mean we do not have responsibility for the harm we cause? What does it mean for us to give “a cup of water” in Jesus’ name? What difference does it make that we have kindness and compassion for others? How is our relationship with God and our trait of kindness related?
