Thy Will Be Done

Current Sermon Series

March 4  “God’s Will and My Identity”  In humility Mary dutifully accepted the role God had given her to become the mother of our Savior.  That Son would later accept his role, faithfully following the path his Father had in mind for him to save us all.  Today, we are to submit to God’s Word and God’s purpose, trusting in Jesus, even when we don’t understand, and stay with Jesus even in the face of suffering.  Our prayer and acceptance is, “Thy will be done.”

March 11  “God’s Will and My Worldview”  On the road to Damascus, Paul had his worldview turned upside down when God called him to preach the name of the Christ he had been persecuting.  Paul wrote to the Corinthians, “We preach Christ crucified.”  Today, we follow God’s will by putting the crucified Christ at the center of our worldview.  Our prayer and perspective is, “Thy will be done.”

March 18  “God’s Will and My Response”  Lydia followed the will of God by responding in faith and hospitality when the Gospel message of Christ’s sacrifice was preached to her.  Today, we follow the will of God by responding in love and service to one another in return for what Christ has done for us.  Our prayer and response is, “Thy will be done.”

March 25  “God’s Will and When We Are Not Willing”  Jesus rode into Jerusalem to fanfare, knowing fully what would happen later that week.  Today, we are not always willing to do what God asks of us, but in his Palm Sunday entry into Jerusalem, Christ reveals to us that even tough roads are worth traversing for the good of the Kingdom.  Our prayer and willingness is, “Thy will be done.”

March 29  “God’s Will and Joyful Service”  On the last night of his life, Jesus asks his disciples to wash one another’s feet, as he washed theirs, for the joy that was set before him.  Today, serving one another with joy is a tribute to him who is the Servant of all.  Our prayer and joy is, “Thy will be done.”

March 30  “God’s Will Is Done”  On the cross Christ followed through with the will of God, crying out, “It is finished” as he breathed his last.  Today, this ultimate sacrifice serves as a model to look at our lives as a holy sacrifice to him.  Our prayer and aspiration is, “Thy will be done.”

April 1  “God’s Will and New Creation”  When Christ rose from the tomb he opened the door to a new heavens and a new earth, where righteousness dwells.  Today, God’s will for us as Easter people is to fix our eyes on the new creation of perfect paradise prepared for us in heaven.  Our prayer and focus is, “Thy will be done.”
