Sermon Notes - A Radical New Vision for the Church


A Radical New Vision for the Church 

(Based on a four letter word: Love)!


Key Preaching Verses

a)  Revelations 21.5aHe who was seated on the throne said, ‘I am making everything new!’”

b)  John 13.34-35Jesus said, “A new command I give you: love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.  By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”


Focus Questions

a)  In today’s reading from Revelation we discover a new vision of renewal:

  • What are your dreams and visions of renewal for your own life and for our Church?
  • What are you doing to make these dreams and visions of renewal become a reality in your living and in the community life of our Church?
  • What areas of your life need further conversion and transformation, so that you may better achieve your dreams of renewal.


b)  God seeks individuals and communities willing to risk love:

  • In many American movies love is simply a code word for sex!  How would you define the word love?
  • In our personal living and in the community of the Church how do we move from theory to the practice of love?
  • Do you have the courage that will risk being hurt in order to love unconditionally?

Take Home Challenge:

Jesus says to each one of us:

  • Will you lay down your life for me?
  • Will you make My Love your love?
