Sermon: “The Spirit Helps Us in Our Weakness”
Theme: The power of faith and knowledge of God is far greater than the things that we perceive to be threats.
Purpose: We will learn how to draw strength from our confidence in God so that we may be healthy in our relationships.
Scriptures: Romans 8:26-39 The Spirit helps us in our weakness because we do not know how to pray, those whom he foreknew he predestined to be children of God.
Matthew 13:31-33, 44-52 Parables of the Mustard seed, the pearl of great price, and the good and bad fish.
What is the power that can be found in our faith? In what ways does our faith do things that are much bigger than our own capability or power? What is meant by a “Mustard seed” faith? What is the confidence in knowing that nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus? How does that translate into healthier relationships? How do we focus on what is truly important and will bear fruit in our lives rather than being distracted into meaningless dramas?
