English Sermon (05/09/21) – A Christ-Centered Woman (Acts 9:36-43)
Happy Mother’s Day to all the biological mothers, mother figures, spiritual mothers and mothers to be! Today we will focus on a sister in Acts 9, a disciple of Christ named Tabitha, whose name translated means Dorcas. Dorcas was special not because of what she did, but because she was a devoted follower of Christ and her actions were an expression of her love for Christ. She found her purpose in Jesus and as a result that lead her to go out and do many good works and acts of charity (not the other way around). Our lives are not and will not be purposeful or fulfilled by the outward things we do. You see, we do not add Jesus to our lives; Jesus must become our lives and our purpose, just as he was for Dorcas. Dorcas was a great example to us on how to be Christ-centered people by finding our purpose in Christ, being available to do God’s word, being a witness for Christ and finding hope in Jesus resurrection.
