Sermon: “The Gift of Covenant Law”
Theme: God gave the gift of law that creates boundaries and instructs us in righteousness so that we may learn how to be gracious and loving with one another.
Purpose: The congregation will reflect on their own commitment to do what is right to all people.
Scriptures: John 2:13-22 Jesus drives out the moneychangers and proclaims call for faithfulness to God.
Exodus 20:1-17 God gives the law to the people at Mount Sanai.
Practice: Commitment to our personal mission and purpose.
What does it mean to us that the law that governs our life comes from God? In what ways does a lack of belief or trust in authority affect people’s lives? How does our attitude towards the laws of God give us the confidence to be healthy in our relationship with God and with the people around us? In what ways are we changed by our knowledge that God’s commandments will sustain us and be our source for wisdom and joy? In what ways do we need to focus on our relationship with God in the law and less to legalism or self-justification?
