Texts:  Acts 17:22-31; Psalm 66:8-20; 1 Peter 3:13-22; and John 14:15-21

Big Idea: The love of God the Father for us was first. The Spirit of God surprises us, on an ongoing basis, with the loving presence of the Father. Jesus compels us to be lovers of God by his altruistic behavior toward humanity.

Sermon Title: “To What Do You Aspire?”

Texts:  Acts 1:6-14; Psalm 68:1-10, 32-35; 1 Peter 4:12-14, 5:6-11; and 
John 17:1-11

Big Idea: We listen to the various religious traditions. We determine whether religion is a good or bad word for us. We live in a pluralistic world that is filled with ideologies, some sacred and some profane. We find our way by listening to the small still voice of God as we know God in Jesus Christ. Warm relationships listen well and are rooted in empathy.
