Rev. Paul J. Miller – Sermon Outline – March 15

Series Title: “Discovering Your Life in the Life of Jesus”

Today’s Text: Mark 4:21-34

Do you REALLY want to grow?

 

Growth includes

 

exposure

openness

vulnerability

humility

 

Growth requires listening

“If anyone has ears to hear, let them hear.”

“Consider carefully what you hear,…”

 

IS YOUR “MEASURE” ABLE TO…

ACCEPT CHANGE

ADMIT FAILURE

CONSIDER THE “OTHER”

 

Growth is not what you do, it’s what God does in you

The Kingdom of God is LIKE

            Embrace mystery

            Live with unanswered questions

            Let go of outcomes

            Accept lack of closure

 

Growth is not just for your own sake

“Birds can perch in its shade”

Is the space your life provides so big that others find safety, comfort, and provision just by being with you? 

 

Everything good begins with light.
