Today’s ‘Sermon’

20 Jan

Hello again!

Today’s sermon didn’t appear to come out of any one passage, per se. The verse he started out with though was Hebrews 12: 1. Also, the pastor didn’t have any “official” points, but his main point was rather obvious: We should try to live a holy life through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Now, while I do certainly agree that we should want to live a life holy and pleasing to the Lord, I wish he had focused in on and expounded upon what he said in his first couple of paragraphs. i.e. that we cannot possibly live a life holy, but through the work Christ did for us, we can now live a life holy and pleasing to God. Instead of doing this though, he proceeded in essence to give a lecture on living a holy life. It was a rather good lecture, mind, but it wasn’t a sermon. A sermon requires there to be an uplifting of Christ, while a lecture can often be more effective at lifting up our response to the cross as being more important.

In conclusion: There wasn’t anything all too wrong with the lecture today, but when I go to a Church, I really do hope to hear an uplifting and Christ filled sermon.

You are Loved!
