Theme: Matthew 6:25-34

November 19, 2009

I am using the Gospel lesson for Thanksgiving Day this Sunday.  These are the thoughts I have so far for this week’s sermon*:

Theme (What is God doing in the text?): God cares for us in every necessary way.

Need (What is the human need reflected in the text?): We need to trust and rely on God to such an extent that worry is driven away.

Image (What is the dominant image for the sermon?): Positively, love and care, or negatively, worry.

Mission (To what action is the text leading us?): Order our lives so that they reflect our trust in God.

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