Sermon: “The Strength that Flows from God”
Theme: God gives us strength and confidence to do the work and will of Christ, loving even those who are struggling and at times hard to love.
Purpose: We will focus on drawing strength to be loving and serving through our relationship with Christ.
Scriptures: Isaiah 40:21-31 Those who wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength;
Mark 1:29-39 Jesus cured many, but then went off to pray.
What is our source of strength and confidence to be the people God created us to be? How can we be strengthened and encouraged in order to speak and act with compassion and confidence? How do we find the gift of the knowledge of God that releases us from arrogance, judgment, and personal self-interest? What does it mean for us to have the strength to support and care for people who have struggled with their own demons and secrets with a gift of God’s loving care?
