Luke 11:1-13

 Jesus teaches the disciples how to pray and gives us the Lord’s Prayer as a model for how we can communicate with God. Jesus teaches us to be persistent in our prayer lives. Prayer is a powerful, holy mystery. We will explore the nature of prayer. What is important for us to do when we talk with God? Does God answer our prayers? How can prayer become a more vibrant part of our devotional lives?


Sermon Series on “The Pillars of Faith”

August 11 - September 1, 2019

 One of the key concepts of our Christian identity is the notion of faith. As followers of Christ, we trust in what we cannot see or prove. We believe in an invisible triune God who blesses us day by day. Throughout this series, we will consider several key questions about the nature of faith and its implications for how we live our daily lives. We will explore the ways that the Gospel of Luke and the book of Hebrews define faith.

Hebrews 11:1-3, 8-16

 What is faith?

 This text from Hebrews highlights the theme of faith and states its centrality to us as disciples of Christ. God invites us to have faith and to trust in our Lord. Hebrews defines faith as “the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not yet seen.” What does it mean for us to put our trust in the Lord?

Hebrews 11:29-12:2

 How does faith keep us going when times are tough?

 Faith helps us to discern the will of God and to see what lies ahead. Hebrews traces the history of all the Old Testament figures who walked by faith, including Moses, David, Rahab, and the prophets. When we feel overwhelmed by life’s trials and burdens, we can lean on and depend upon Christ’s strength to carry us forward.

Luke 12:22-40

 How does our faith help us to address

our worries and concerns?

 Jesus tells us to not worry about our material possessions because God will provide for us what we need. Jesus asks us to consider the lilies of the field and other simple joys of life. We will explore what it means to have faith in God in the present and to trust in God’s providence for our future.

Luke 14:1, 7-14

 What kind of perspective does our faith give to our identity and how we handle our disagreements?

 Jesus is eating a meal with Pharisees and everyone is fighting over something as silly as where they sit. We can also get into arguments over petty concerns ourselves. Jesus tells us that it is better to be humble, to honor others instead of ourselves, and to think first about how we can serve other people.
