Sermon: “We Live by God’s Grace”
Theme: We are dependent only to the grace of God and will bear fruit out of our relationship with Christ.
Purpose: We will focus on putting Christ above all our distractions.
Scriptures: Psalm 121 I look up at the hills, from where will my help come? The Lord is your keeper.
Matthew 21:18-22 Jesus curses the fig tree.
How do we feel about Jesus being angry and judging anything, such as a fig tree? How do we perceive Jesus’ condemnation of the fruitless fig tree? What does this say to us about bearing fruit? If bearing fruit is that important, then what should we actually be focusing upon? Do we concern ourselves with being fruitful in producing what Jesus wants of us? Should we be more concerned about how we serve Christ than upon those things that occupy our minds through most of the day?
