Riches: Redefined

Sermon Audio:

Sermon Text:

“This life, therefore, is not righteousness, but growth in righteousness, not health but healing, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise.  We are not yet what we shall be, but we are growing toward it.  The process is not yet finished but it is going on.  This is not the end but it is the road.  All does not yet gleam in glory but all is being purified.”

– Martin Luther

Reflection Points

  • What ideas in the sermon stood out to you?  Why?
  • Do you simply pay lip service to the idea that the Holy Spirit is the source of our power for change?
  • Do you pursue change and maturation in your own strength and wisdom?
    • Or, do you acknowledge your dependence upon Him throughout the day?
  • What difference would it make if you prayed daily for the work of the Spirit within you?  Will you do it?
