Sermon: “God’s Interruption”
Theme: God’s message calls us to a new way of living and sharing Christ’s love to the world.
Purpose: The congregation will perceive our serving is an opportunity to be transformed in heart and mind.
Scriptures: Mark 1:14-20 Jesus calls the disciples to “fish” for people.
Jonah 3:1-5, 10 Jonah finally proclaims God’s word and the people respond.
What does it mean for us to follow Jesus? In what ways are we called to share Christ with others? In what ways are we like Jonah, resentful when good things happen to people we don’t like? How do we learn to be more favorable to God’s call and direction than to our own resentments and personal feelings? In what ways are we needing to let go of our attachments and grudges in order to take part in God’s mission?
