Sermon: “The Things that Will Last”
Theme: Our relationship with Christ and the kingdom of God will outlast anything else we invest our time, energy, or life into.
Purpose: The congregation will evaluate how they use their time and energy.
Scriptures: Hebrews 10:11-25 In response to Jesus’ sacrificial love, we gather to encourage one another in love.
Mark 13:1-8 The disciples are warned that the grand buildings will fall, but the Kingdom of God will stand.
What are the things that we focus upon in order to feel stable and secure? In what ways do we depend upon things that at times leave us feeling worried and unsure about the future? How do we come to terms with our dependence on God for our safety and strength? In what ways can we come to be confident and sure in God’s love for us? How do we come to draw strength and our identity from the knowledge of God’s love for us and promise to care for us? How do we live in the joy of knowing God’s constant care is our strength? How do we allow God to write the law on our hearts and minds so that we may enjoy the blessings of God’s constant care?
