Transformed  Living Sermon SeriesAll of Me“, by Rev. Mike Holly

Sermon Series: Treasures of the Transformed Life

This morning in worship, we will give you the opportunity to come forward to the altar rail and turn in your 2015 Financial Commitment Cards as well as your Time and Talent Commitment Cards after the sermon. We have been on a six-week journey leading up to this moment. We have discussed how God invited us through church membership to make faithful commitments to Him and to one another. Today, we are inviting you to re-commit yourself to those commitments and to become more involved in the life of this wonderful congregation.

Today’s sermon covers the fifth and newest commitment that we make: our witness. This means the way we act and speak and live. The Christian desires to make Christ the center of our lives — the reason for our living — and the model by which we treat others. Christ at the center transforms how we act, speak and live.

One important way that we witness Christ to others is how we serve others as Tom indicated last Sunday. It is also shown with a life of integrity as we live in community and as we work together in our careers. Finally, it is shown in how we treat one another as Christians, for “they will know we are Christians by our love.” May you continue to make Christ the center of who you are, so that your witness becomes even more clearly a representation of Christ

The Word

Micah 6:6-8

“With what shall I come before the Lord,
and bow myself before God on high?
Shall I come before him with burnt offerings,
with calves a year old?
Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams,
with ten thousands of rivers of oil?
Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression,
the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?”
He has told you, O mortal, what is good;
and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?
