Theme: Luke 3:7-18

December 9, 2009

John the Baptist gives practical advice for those who want to know how to respond to his message of the coming judgment.  These are the thoughts I have so far for this week’s sermon*:

Theme (What is God doing in the text?): God teaches us how to act with righteousness and holiness.

Need (What is the human need reflected in the text?): To live the repentant life.

Image (What is the dominant image for the sermon?): Ordinary living.

Mission (To what action is the text leading us?): Act with justice and holiness in the life and location given to you.

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