Sloth vs. Commitment
Sermon: “Love and Serve”
Theme: God calls us to commit our way to serving Christ and to be willing to use our time to glorify God.
Purpose: The congregation will understand that serving God is not about “looking busy” but about discerning the will of God and living by that will.
Scriptures: 2 Thessalonians 3:6-13 Those who will not work should not eat, but do not tire of doing what is right.
Matthew 7:21-29 The house that is built on the rock as opposed to building on sand.
What is sloth? Is it possible to be busy, and doing a lot of things, but at the same time not using your time in a healthy manner? In what ways is sloth destructive? Why are we always too busy to serve God? Why is sloth a problem in terms of enabling us to grow in our faith? How do we learn to practice service and submitting our time to God? Why is it some who think they are doing many things that are important find out that they are actually serving their own ego and not serving Christ?
