Sermon: The Strength of Submission
Theme: The people of God find strength through submitting their hearts to Christ’s direction.
Purpose: The congregation will seek to learn humility and to practice gratitude for opportunities to serve.
Scriptures: Acts 2:42-27 The disciples held all in common and were empowered by the power of the Holy Spirit.
John 10:1-10 The sheep hear the shepherd’s voice and enter by the gate.
What does it mean to submit to God’s will in our lives? When we practice submission do we give up our own personality or uniqueness? Or does submission mean to recognize greater wisdom than our own? What was the relationship like among the early Christians that they did not feel the need to be jealous about sharing their wealth? Why does it frighten us to picture a relationship in the church that drove people to such generosity? What do we really want in terms of our relationship with Christ and with one another?
