Sermon: Knowing Confidence Through Christ’s Authority
Theme: As we live and act in Christ we experience confidence and peace in the knowledge of God’s love and authority which will provide for us.
Purpose: The congregation will recognize that the way to confidence is to serve God and practice a relationship of serving Christ.
Scriptures: Romans 8:28-39 We have confidence and know all things work together for good for those who are in Christ Jesus.
Matthew 21:23-32 Jesus is asked by what authority he acts, parable of two sons.
What does it mean to us that “All things work together for good for those who are in Christ Jesus?” What does it mean to us to be in Christ Jesus? What confidence might we have if we learn to live in healthy relationships with God and trust in God’s authority? What frightens us about God’s power and authority? In what ways do we act like the disobedient son, claiming to serve God but in truth serving our own egos? How does this affect our life and our feelings of insecurity? How do we find ourselves rooted and confident through our faith in God?
