Potential Theme: Mark 7:1-8, 14-15, 21-23

August 26, 2009

These are the thoughts I have so far for this week’s sermon*:

Theme (What is God doing in the text?): God is teaching us that not everything is equally important.

Need (What is the human need reflected in the text?): To live lives of vital faith.

Image (What is the dominant image for the sermon?): Heart–heart of the matter and the heart within.

Mission (To what action is the text leading us?): To live out the essentials of our faith by focusing our energy on those essentials.

What good news did you discover in this text?  What image will you use to carry your listeners through the sermon?

*These categories are adapted from Paul Scott Wilson’s The Four Pages of the Sermon (Nashville: Abingdon, 1999).
