Sermon Skeleton

2009 July 18
by Gordon Reid

29SermonTomorrow, I will preach on the text from the Epistle: “The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life”.

Here is the skeleton which I’ll take into the pulpit:

Satan/God

Wages/Gift

Death/Eternal Life

Servant/Son

Bondage/Freedom

Ignorance/Knowledge

Strife & Division/Peace & Concord

The Second Collect at Matins: “O God who art the author of peace and lover of concord, in knowledge of whom standeth our eternal life, whose service is perfect freedom…..”

If you want to hear how it turns out (I do!) you can listen to the sermon on the St Clement’s web site; click “Resources” and then “Sermons”.

    We Lutherans make the distinction through Law/Gospel. What you have there looks familiar. Where the Word is there is the Holy Spirit giving and sustaining faith. Thanks for the posts and the blog.
