God clothes us in a robe of being valued for ourselves.
Sermon: “Putting On an Identity of Love”
Theme: We are constantly pushed to show importance, power, influence, and success but real happiness and security is found in clothing ourselves with compassion, humility, and above all, love.
Purpose: The congregation will become sensitive to their need to be noticed and important so that they may seek instead to find love and peace.
Scriptures: Matthew 6:28-30 Consider the lilies of the filed.
Colossians 3:12-17 Above all clothe yourselves with love.
What shapes the way we think of ourselves? In what ways do we allow our “self” or identity to be given to us by others? In what ways do we have a solid self that holds onto our value and purpose? What role does love play in our values? In what ways do we allow superficial things to determine how we feel about ourselves and the attitudes we hold towards others? What impact does the tendency to make judgements about other people’s appearance make on ourselves and our own relationships?
