Sermon: “Open the Gates and Let Christ In”
Theme: Christ comes into our lives to open a new opportunity for righteousness and peace, if we will let go of our “inner Pharisees” and welcome the cleansing which will lead to our healing.
Purpose: The congregation will welcome Christ’s presence to renew and open new avenues for healing.
Scriptures: Luke 19:28-40 Jesus enters Jerusalem Triumphantly on a colt.
Philippians 2:5-11 Have the same mind that was in Christ, that he emptied himself, taking the form of a servant.
What does it mean to fully invite Jesus into our lives? What does submission to Jesus mean to us today? Do we really want to submit our grudges, our grievances, and our hurts to Jesus? How do we open ourselves to cleansing of the remainder from the anger and memories of the past? What does it mean to have the mind of Christ which is willing to suffer humility for the sake of peace? What difference is there between humility for Christ and making ourselves a target for further abuse?
