Sermon: “Treasures in Clay Jars”
Theme: The people of God have within them the precious and powerful gift of God’s love and presence.
Purpose: The congregation will examine what is really important in their lives.
Scriptures: 2 Corinthians 4:5-12 We are treasures in clay jars.
Mark 2:23-3:6 The sabbath was made to serve humanity – God’s law is to bring healing and salvation.
What do we consider precious to us? In what ways do things serve us? In what ways do we find ourselves worshipping things? What is our relationship with the building that is the church? In what ways do we need to see Christ’s love and presence as something greater than things? How are we able to put our traditions and customs into service to God rather than sacrificing relationships to things that are not important?
