Sermon: “Faithful Servants Serving Faithfully”
Theme: Faithfulness flows out of a relationship with Christ that is renewed and refreshed as we use our gifts to bring blessing and justice to the world.
Purpose: We will examine our need to set ego aside in order to be healthy in ourrelationship with Christ and the world.
Scriptures: Psalm 83 A prayer for God’s intervention in the midst of betrayal and fear.
Matthew 24:45-51 The faithful servant cares for the other slaves, but the unfaithful will be put with the “hypocrites.”
How do we understand the judgment of God against evil and deceit in the world? What causes people to be in opposition to God and God’s justice? What is the difference between someone who makes themselves an enemy of God’s way and those who seek to be faithful? How do we live faithfully in the midst of deceit and dishonesty? What is God’s expectation for how we
respond to people who we experience to be untrustworthy?
