The sermon on Sunday, 10 July 2016 is about “Christ-like flowers or followers”. Is there anything we can learn from flowers, as followers of Christ? What is it to be(come) alike Jesus and flourish in our lives as Christians? What can we learn from looking at flowers and observing their growth in nature, as Jesus asks us to do in his Sermon on the Mount? Jesus says (Matthew 6:28-33, ERV): “Look at the flowers in the field. See how they grow. They don’t work or make clothes for themselves. But I tell you that even Solomon, the great and rich king, was not dressed as beautifully as one of these flowers. If God makes what grows in the field so beautiful, what do you think he will do for you? It’s just grass—one day it’s alive, and the next day someone throws it into a fire. But God cares enough to make it beautiful. Surely he will do much more for you. Your faith is so small! […] Don’t worry, because your Father in heaven knows […] what you need. What you should want most is God’s kingdom and doing what he wants you to do. Then he will give you all […] you need.”  (BF)
