Sermon: “Emptiness and Fullness”
Theme: Only through being filled with the knowledge of God will we have a message and light that will be sustained and valuable.
Purpose: The congregation will reflect on what leads to satisfaction and fulfillment in their lives and what we then share with the world about what matters.
Scriptures: Psalm 1 Those who follow the law of the Lord are like trees planted by streams.
Luke 6:17-26 Blessings to those who have known poverty and hunger because they have roots in the knowledge of God.
What brings us real fulfillment and peace? How does focusing on what really matters affect our way of living from day to day? In what ways do we find strength and energy in our relationship with God and our relationships with one another? How do we learn to mediate on God’s law and draw strength from God’s Word? What do we need to do in order to not become obsessed with the things we are lacking? How do we become people who are filled by God’s love and Holy Spirit?
