Sermon: “Being Born from Above”
Theme: Jesus invites us to be in a relationship with God through which we are renewed and transformed by submitting our heart to God.
Purpose: The congregation will seek to know Christ through submission and obedience to God.
Scriptures: Genesis 12:1-4 God calls Abram to a covenant to follow faithfully.
John 3:1-17 The story of Nicodemus, you must be born from above.
What does it mean for us to be “reborn from above?” What is required that we be born by the power of the Holy Spirit and the grace of God? In what ways are we trying to change our lives by our own willpower and self-determination rather than to open ourselves to being born from above? How do we see ourselves needing to be like Abram, ready to leave behind the old life and live out of our trust in God? Why do we like Nicodemus struggle with the idea of God acting in our lives today?
