May The Force Be with You

Psalm 114:1-8

Sermon Synopsis:  May the Force be with you is a line from Star Wars movies, but in this sermon it is a reference to the power of God in and among the people of God.  Psalm 114 draws on a number of Old Testament narratives to make clear that it was the presence of God among the people of Israel or Judah that made the difference in times of conflict.  In the same manner, it is the presence of Spirit of God in the church today that makes it possible for the church to make a difference in the world.  The forces of evil are not afraid of the people in the church but they know to be afraid of God.  The Spirit of Christ also makes a difference in the lives of the believers making it possible for them to be forgiven as well as to forgive.  The Force in believers transforms believers into a force the world cannot resist.

Scripture References (NIV): Psalm 114; Exodus 14:19-31; Romans 14:1-12; Acts 19:13-16; Matthew 18:21-35; Mark .
