Sermon Series for July

The Rev. Dr. Jody Moore

 

July 2, 2017

Psalm 121

 

The psalmist recognizes that his help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.  What does it look like for us to put our faith in God as our keeper, who offers us shade and protection?  The Lord invites us to put our trust in God’s wonderful promises. 

 

Sermon Series for July 2017 on:

Jonah: The Reluctant Prophet Experiences God’s Grace

 

Jonah is one of my favorite books of the Bible.  Jonah is more than just a story about a big fish!  Compared to most books of the Bible, it is very short (only four chapters), but it has tremendous meaning for how we live as Christians today.  Many of us can relate to Jonah.  God interrupts his life when things seem to be going just fine for him.  By sending Jonah where he does not wish to go, God teaches Jonah about his calling, expressing honest pain, repentance, and grace.

Jonah Ch. 1

 

Jonah resists God’s plan for his life.  We discover that following God’s will is difficult.  Some of the time, we ignore God’s plans for us; other times life’s many obstacles can get in our way.

Jonah Ch. 2

 

Jonah expresses pain and lament in the midst of his desperate plight.  We discover that expressing our sorrow is healthy and necessary to the life of faith.  Jonah eventually leans on his only true hope, God.

Jonah Ch. 3

 

Much to Jonah’s surprise, God’s Spirit can lead people to repentance and enable them to make dramatic changes to their lives.  We discover that God can give us the determination to repent.

Jonah Ch. 4

 

God is merciful to and bestows grace upon the people of Nineveh.  Rather than seeing it as good news, Jonah sulks because God is not fair.  Scripture, however, reveals that it is much better for God to be gracious rather than fair!
