Sermon: “God’s Call on Us”
Theme: We are called to be people who show we have Christ’s love in us through the way we are thoughtful and kind in our manner with our neighbors.
Purpose: The congregation will examine what is important about their relationship with Christ and treatment of others.
Scriptures: James 1:17-27 Quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to anger, be doers of the word.
Mark 7:1-8, 14-15, 21-23 What makes us clean or unclean.
Do we worry more about traditions and other people’s behaviors than about our own relationship with God? What does Jesus mean when he quotes: ““This people honors me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me; 7 in vain do they worship me, teaching human precepts as doctrines.” Do we put more emphasis on things that do not matter or on doing the things that show God’s love and compassion? What does James mean when he says: “27Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to care for orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world?” Do we do a good job of practicing our religion in ways that demonstrates God’s love?
