Sermon: “Commissioned to Proclaim Christ”
Theme: Our identity and purpose flows from our call to share the news that God’s love was shown in the forgiveness of Christ Jesus and the compassion that seeks to heal all of the world.
Purpose: The congregation will reflect upon their identity in Christ and call to live that identity.
Scriptures: Matthew 28:16-20 The great Commission to proclaim the gospel.
1 Corinthians 15:1-11 The Apostle Paul affirms the death and resurrection of Christ and his commission.
What is the Good News that we have for the world today? In the midst of the hostility, and injustice, and fear of the world today, what difference does Jesus’ death and resurrection make? What difference does the resurrection make to us? What is our commission from Christ? How do we “proclaim” Jesus’ forgiveness and make disciples of the world around us? Is making disciples our job or are we just to support people who do make disciples? How can we fully know Christ if we aren’t a part of sharing and proclaiming Jesus’ forgiveness and healing?
